League Playoff Format

The league playoff format at Laser Storm Pittsburgh is as follows:

All teams play a double elimination bracket. The teams play a double game consisting of one game on each side. The games are treated as one game. The winner is decided by combining the scores of both games and assessing the penalties at the end. This eliminates the need for a tie break game.

The penalty system is as follows:

Each team will be allowed 10 penalties. Penalties carry over from game one to game two and are cumulative. These points are deducted from the combined game scores.

The penalties will deduct points as followed:

Penalty # Points Deducted Total Points Deducted
1 1 1
2 2 3
3 3 6
4 4 10
5 5 15
6 6 21
7 7 28
8 8 36
9 9 45
10 Disqualified Disqualified

In the case of a tie, we will take the best and worst scorecard from each team and add them together. The team with the best +/- points earned will win. If still a tie, go to the next set of scorecards, the second best and second worst, and so on. If any possible chance of a tie, it will be sorted by the best accuracy average of the team.
