Rigged Wiki:News/Spring 2019 Format and Dates
Sign ups for the 2019 4chan Spring Babby Cup have closed and 39 teams have been accepted. Qualifiers will be run in order to trim the number of teams down to 32.
The 2019 4chan Spring Babby Cup Qualifiers will have 12 teams playing in it. The format will be 3 groups of 4, with teams placing first in each group advancing into the Spring Babby Cup. The three second-placers will participate in a 2-game playoff to determine which two will advance. The two best-placing second-placers (via Points > GD > GF) will face each other, with the winner advancing to the Babby Cup. The loser of the first round will then face off against the worst-placing second-placer, with the winner of this match advancing while the loser (along with all third- and fourth-placing teams) gaining a bye to full participation in the 2019 4chan Autumn Babby Cup. This will result in 6 matches on the first two days and 8 matches on the third day of the Qualifiers.
Participants will be the bottom 11 placing teams from Autumn 18 (/toy/, /fa/, /cm/, /an/, /out/, /gif/, /asp/, /wsg/, /p/, /fit/, and /o/) as well as recently revived team /diy/.

A week buffer is being placed between the Qualifiers and the Babby Cup in order to give teams and helpers more time in preparation for the usage of PES18. If you need assistance with converting your team's aesthetics as much as possible for PES18, please contact QD or another relevant individual sooner rather than later in order to afford as much time as possible to getting as much done as possible.
