Survive the Elimination!
Process of the tournament
There will be a total of two (2) Parts to the Elite tournament. The first part is a "Elimination Round" and the second part is a "Knock-out Bracket".
Elimination Round (ER)
This part of the tournament involves two (2) rounds.
The first round will be set to ‘HARD’ difficulty, and the second round will be set to ‘EXPERT’ difficulty. Both rounds will operate the same way. First, the contenders will start with the HARD round, where they will score their best on three chosen songs from the official Beat Saber library.
The songs the contenders will play in the ER will be mentioned at the start of the Tournament. These songs will not be mentioned before it.
The contenders top scores on each song will be averaged out for a collective point number. After the first round and their average is calculated they will then enter the second round of the ER, which will operate the same as the first, but with different songs and will be set to a ‘EXPERT’ difficulty.
Once the contenders have completed the second part of the ER their averages of HARD and EXPERT will be combined together for a total collective score.
The 'Top Six Players' with the highest scores will move on the 'Knock-out Bracket'. This is where things get to become even more competitive!

Pizza & Pop Include in the Tournament is Made Possible by:
This part of the competition will involve the six highest scoring participants from the Elimination Round (ER) to do 1v1 on two (2) songs, with the ability for each Contender to choose one out of the two songs they do battle with.
The KOB will consists of a Quarter Final Round (QFR) set to a EXPERT difficulty, Semi-Final Round (SFR) set to an EXPERT+ difficulty, a Battle for Third (BF3) set to EXPERT difficulty, and the Final Round (FR) set to EXPERT+ difficulty.
Who challenges who in the QFR will be determined by their rank placement from their high-score from the ER. However, first place and second place from the ER will achieve what's known as a “Qualifier Privilege”, where they will skip the QFR and wait for their matching opponent in the SFR.
Songs used are from the "OFFICIAL Soundtracks".

downsized tournament mode (DSM)
DESCRIPTION OF THE DSM

Everyone will play each other once for a total of 2 to 4 times (depending on the size of the group) against 4 different songs from the original sound tracks. The first 2 songs difficulties will be set to hard, and the last 2 songs difficulties will be set to Expert. the scores will be kept track of and will be added together for an average high score.
The 3 highest scoring contenders will move on to the final round where they will battle 5 staff chosen songs from the original sound track. The difficulty for this will be set to EXPERT+! The scores will be kept track of and will be averaged out for a collective score.
If a DSM mode is not favored by the pre-registered contenders we will move the tournament date to another community voted time.
