Tournament and Ladders Guide
What is the difference between an LMS Tournament and Single Elimination?
LMS (Last Man Standing) Tournaments are held at a specific time and date. All players/teams jump into the server at the same time and battle it out until only one is left standing. Players/teams are then given a score by the tournament creator. The higher the score the higher their placing in the tournament. Once all matches have been played the tournament creator will select 'finish' from the Tournament Tools drop down menu and the system will calculate the final standings based on the player/team scores.
In Single Elimination Tournaments competitors progress through the rounds of the tournament. The tournament draw and the number of rounds will be automatically created by the system using the number of players/teams in the tournament.
