Summary of Single Tournament Format
The tournament is made up of three rounds: the preliminary round, the semi-final round, and the final round.
In the preliminary round, all participants will play three with the base Catan. The 16 players with the highest rankings reach the semi-finals.
If there are 28 or more unique players, each of the 16 semi-finalists will play 1 game to determine who advances. The 16 semi-finalists are divided into 4 separate tables (4-players per table). Each table plays 1 game of Catan. If you win in one of these 4 games you advance to the finals.
If there are fewer than 28 unique players, each of the 16 semi-finalists will play 1 game to determine who advances. This semi-final game is played, scored, and ranked in the same way as in the preliminaries. If you are one of the top 4 players in the semi-finals, you advance to the finals.
In the final, seating is based on ranking from the preliminary round. The winner of the final will be the Qualifier Champion.
