This cup is intended to be the 1st of a series that will occur every ONL seasons, except the 1st season of each year - due to, in the 1st season of each year, we already have the overall PO as well as the usual seasonal PO. Among others, one of the main reasons for this cup creation is in thinking of the ONL players who don't get the chance to reach the final PO of each season and who rarely have the chance to join our One-Evenings tourneys, due its specific time demanding. So, now we are happy to make that everyone have the opportunity to play a regular tourney format competition among our community.
The cup will start with a sign-in period and it will automatically closed since it reaches 32 players. If the sign-in period expires and we will not get 32 players, the cup of the current season is cancelled.
The format is a simple tree with no group stage. Every stage of the cup tree has a well defined time period to be played. If a game of some stage will not be played before the time for that stage is finish, the player who has demonstrated the higher keen to arrange the game will advance for the next stage.
