This post will discuss entry, tournament structure, eligibility, and rewards.
This is similar to previous season finales
Sunday, December 27th at 11:59PM ET will be the final submission deadline for algos. After this period, algos will continue to play matches with each other and have their rating adjusted. In the afternoon on Monday, January 11th, the leaderboard for season 7 will be locked in, season 7 matches will stop, and season 8 will begin.
Prizes and Competition Structure.
The total prize pool for this competition will scale with the number of players who upload a season algo in the season.
<500 entrants == $500
500-750 == $750
750+ = $1,000
There are 2 ways to win.
- Round Robin Groups
Players will be broken up into two groups:
5 players with odd rankings and 5 players with even rankings.
All players will play against all other players in their group.
Each win awards $20/$30/$40 for a total of $400/$600/$800
- Grand finale
The player with the most wins in their group moves to the grand finale.
In the case of a tie, the player who won the most matches among the tied players moves on.
In the rare case, this does not produce a single winner, the rating will be used as a tiebreaker.
The grand finale winner will earn an additional $100/$150/$200
