Never before have the Gobblin lands been so filled
with travelers from afar. Every inn is filled with traveling fans
and the streets are littered with opportunistic vendors and thieves
with the impending start of the Golden Gauntlet. However some
concern exists that as the competition rolls on, those teams that get
off to a slow start may see their supporters leave the land early as
their fans lose interest as they play games that lack meaning.
Not wanting to see the good times end, Prince Ayennevlic has approved
creating a silver replica of the fabled Golden Guantlet and has created
a secondary competition tied to the last few matches in the Golden
Gauntlet group stage.
Format and Qualification
16-team double elimination* tournament. The last 3 games of the
Golden Gauntlet Group Stage constitutes the qualification process. The
top 16 interested teams over this 3 game stretch (that didn't advance
in the GG) will be eligible to enter the Silver Gauntlet. (Your
first 3 Golden
matches will be used as the first tiebreaker for sorting this out, but
otherwise are meaningless to the Silver Gauntlet competition).
*The championship will be a one-off match between an undefeated team
and a team that went through the loser’s bracket. There will not be a
re-match in the event the team from the loser’s bracket wins. BBATL
Points will be split slightly differently if one team goes undefeated.
The BBATTL Points for this event have been reduced as participants
qualify by effectively failing (but the event should also be free of
the most challenging teams).
Champion (undefeated/1-Loss)= 140/120
Runner Up (1 loss/2-loss)= 100/80
Third Place = 60
