Running the Playoffs
The playoffs of a tournament should always be single elimination. Instead of 45 minute rounds, we strongly recommend 60 minutes. If time expires during the playoffs, follow the normal end of round procedure, but instead of an unfinished game being a draw, the player whose faction has had the highest total damage inflicted to it this game loses. If both Factions have had an equal amount of damage inflicted to them this game, a coin flip administered by the Head Judge determines the match winner. To avoid ambiguity, the damage inflicted to each player’s faction during a playoff game should be carefully tracked by a judge or any trustworthy volunteer appointed by the Head Judge.
