TOURNAMENT FORMAT

TOURNAMENT PHASES
Evo 2014 is an open tournament. Each game tournament will have hundreds of competitors, so we divide the tournament into three phases: Qualification Pools, the Semifinal Bracket, and the Tournament Finals. These brackets will be put online three days before the tournament starts to ensure we didn’t miss anyone, and to make sure people are spread out.

QUALIFICATION POOLS
At the start of the tournament, players are divided into pools of eight or more people. The size of each pool depends on the overall size of the tournament. Each pool is run as a double elimination bracket, until there are only two players left. These top two players advance to the Semifinals.

SEMIFINAL BRACKET
Once all the pools have been run, the top two players from each pool move on to a new double elimination bracket. A loss from your qualification pool carries over to the Semifinals, so one half the players will start out on the “winners” side of the bracket, and the other half will start out on the “losers” side. The top eight players in the Semifinals advance to the Tournament Finals.

TOURNAMENT FINALS
The Finals are basically a continuation of the Semifinal Bracket. Once again, losses carry over. The Finals end when all but one player has been eliminated.

PRIZE STRUCTURE
Think you can place in the money? That’s the spirit. Evo awards cash prizes to the top eight places at a rate proportional to the number of attendees. Ten dollars from the registration fee of each participant will go into a tournament prize pool, which will be awarded to the top finishers at a 60/20/10/4/2/2/1/1 split. For example, if 300 people enter a tournament, the total prize pool for that tournament will be $3000 ($300 x 10), paying out $1800 to first place (60% of $3000), $600 to second place (20% of $3000), and $300 to third place (10% of $3000), and so on.

No, the Pacific West tag is appropriate.

International implies it takes place outside the United States.

Are melee single or doubles as well?

Instead of doing a bump, I decided just to edit here:
On the LVH registry, it says the event is from the 8th to the 15th
And on the schedule it says from the 10th to the 13th, is Melee as well as the other games played all at the same time throughout the day at different booths or what?

Melee is singles only, however last year there was an unofficial doubles side event that was played out after pools was done on day 2 (and had TONS of people enter into the doubles tournament).

As for your second question, the tournament is officially the 10-13th and all the games are played every day. Melee is going to be all three days.

by all three days (10-13 being 4) you mean 11-13?
