Introduction

DPP OU Global Championship is a standard DPP OU Tournament with a goal to find the best DPP OU player of the year.

Each round will consist of 2 stages. The first stage each player will be given 2 sets of pairings in which they play a first-to-1-win (best-of-1 excluding ties) vs their opponent. After the first stage is completed and the host has determined wins, players who win both their matches go through to the next round, while players who lost twice are eliminated. The players who won 1, lost 1, battle it out in a tiebreaker FT1W in stage 2 to join the two-time winners in the next round or the player wins the tournament in the case of a final.

The prize returns: a $50 (or equivalent) amazon gift card will be given out to the winner of the entire tournament!
