Winners were decided based on a point system.

Cronus League Edit

Cronus League zps9wndbqzs

January–March 2016

Cronus League was a ten week long single ship tournament featuring a point system for scoring. Every week two 4-player teams were paired using the high-low setup depending on their points, thus the team with the highest amount of points was paired up with the team that had the lowest amount and so on. Teams started with 1000 points and upon a win they received a percentage of the enemies' points. Therefore beating a higher ranking team was worth more points and vice versa. Matches were either 2v2 Deathmatch or 2v2 King of the Hill. The finale used Double Round Robin format.
