Double-elimination — is a type of elimination tournament competition in which you may stay upon having two losses. The loser team proceeds into the lower bracket and after losing, it goes eliminated from the tournament in general. In brief, there are two sets of brackets with one common final with one team from each of them.
Games in the upper and lower bracket
The tournament is going to have two brackets — upper and lower( winner and lower).
All participants start the tournament in the upper bracket where they are randomly splitting into pairs. The lower bracket begins from the second round.
Starting the second round, games are played simultaneously in both brackets.
- The winner of the upper bracket is going to the next round in the same bracket.
- The loser of the upper bracket is going to the next round in the lower bracket.
- The winner of the lower bracket is going to the next round in the same bracket.
- The loser of the lower bracket is eliminated from the tournament.
As a result, the number of teams in the upper brackets matches the lower bracket.
At the end of each round, there is an equal number of teams in the upper and lower bracket.
After the final, there is one player or team from each bracket who plays in the grand-final between themselves.
