Rigged Wiki:News/Autumn 18 Format and Dates
The teams, format, and dates for the 2018 4chan Autumn Babby Cup have been settled upon.
5 teams have been found to be ineligible for participation for this cup due to questionable or current lack of interest: /soc/, /trv/, /e/, /t/, and /po/. This leaves 38 teams that have been determined to be eligible for entry, which will require Qualifiers to trim the number of teams for the cup down to 32.
The 2018 4chan Autumn Babby Cup Qualifiers will have 12 teams playing in it. The format will be 3 groups of 4, with the top 2 placing teams in each group advancing to the Babby Cup and the bottom 2 placing teams getting a bye to full participation in the 2019 Spring Babby Cup. Participants will be the bottom 10 placing living teams from Spring 18 (/his/, /i/, /mu/, /out/, /y/, /v/, /a/, /o/, /w/, and /c/) and the 2 recently-revived teams /adv/ and /cgl/.
Babby Cup Format:
The Babby Cup proper will be a standard 32 team cup consisting of two weekends of group stages and one knockouts weekend.
Autumn will be using the same rules as Summer 18's, i.e. #NoRuleChanges.
