MKCentral Frontier is returning again for the fourth time! We will be using a format similar to MKCentral Frontier III, so please check out the format details down below.

Tournament Information

MKCentral Frontier is a 3-stage tournament, with teams starting in a different stage depending on their seed. The tournament will last for 4 weeks (7 days in total). However, most teams will end up playing for only 2-3 weeks, starting at different points depending on your seed. Below is a brief overview of the tournament structure. The tournament will be capped at 96 teams to allow the brackets to run smoothly.

STAGE 1 - 33rd-96th seeds start here - Starts on Day 1

Stage 1 will be 8 double-elimination pools with 8 teams each. This will take place on the first day of the tournament. To advance to Stage 2, teams must win 2 matches before being eliminated. Teams that get eliminated in stage 1 will be moved to the Bronze Bracket, described below.

Example Stage 1 Pool

BRONZE BRACKET - For teams eliminated from Stage 1

The Bronze Bracket will be a 32 team double-elimination bracket consisting of the teams eliminated from Stage 1 of the tournament. It will start on the second day of the tournament, and will take 2 weeks (4 days) to complete.

STAGE 2 - 17th-32nd seeds start here - Starts on Day 2


Stage 2 will be 4 double-elimination pools with 12 teams each. This will take place on the 2nd and 3rd days of the tournament. To advance to Stage 3, teams must win 3 matches before being eliminated (2 matches if you're a 17-32 seed). Teams eliminated from Stage 2 will be moved to the Silver Bracket.

SILVER BRACKET - For teams eliminated from Stage 2

Like the Bronze Bracket, the Silver Bracket will also be a 32-team double elimination bracket consisting of the teams eliminated from Stage 2 of the tournament. It will start on the 4th day of the tournament, and will take 2 weeks (4 days) to complete.

STAGE 3 - GOLD BRACKET - 1st-16th seeds start here - Starts on Day 4

The highest stage of the tournament is the Gold Bracket, consisting of the top 16 seeds as well as the 16 teams to advance from Stage 2. This is a 32-team double elimination bracket. This stage is winner-take-all, and the winner of this bracket will be declared the winner of MKCentral Frontier. Like the Bronze and Silver brackets, this bracket will take 2 weeks (4 days) to complete, starting on the 4th day of the tournament.

About Placement Matches

Once a team gets double-eliminated in either the Bronze, Silver, or Gold brackets, they will then enter a small bracket of teams who lost in the same round as them. For example, here is what Losers Round 1 of each bracket would look like:

8 teams would normally lose this match and be eliminated from the tournament. However, instead of their tournament being over, they'll be entered into a placement bracket as shown below:

These brackets will look like the following for teams that get eliminated from the following losers rounds:
- For Losers Round 1 and Losers Round 2, the bracket will be similar to the image above (3 extra matches)
- For Losers Round 3 and 4, only 4 teams get eliminated during each of these rounds (2 extra matches)
- For Losers Round 5 and Losers Quarters, only 2 teams get eliminated during each of these rounds, so they would just play each other (1 extra match)
