Group Stage

The Maryland League Summer Edition kicks off with the round-robin phase, a crucial stage that shapes the tournament’s trajectory. Here, teams compete head-to-head, each match determining their standing for the playoffs. This phase is about winning games and positioning oneself for success in the playoffs. With every match, teams have the chance to solidify their place in the competition and showcase their potential to fans and rivals alike.

Maryland League Single Redemption

Maryland League Summer 2024 Single Redemption format will ensure fairness and also will keep the competition exciting for both players and spectators, for the tournament by allowing participants to continue competing beyond the group stage for a final chance at tournament glory. In this system, all participants start in their respective winners’ brackets. Each participant competes in their first match, and winners stay in the winners’ bracket, while losers move to the losers’ bracket. As the tournament progresses, winners in the winners’ bracket continue to advance by winning their matches, but a loss sends them to the losers’ bracket. In the losers’ bracket, participants face a do-or-die situation, where they must win to claim a hire stake from the tournament prize pool. Maryland League Ascent or Descent ensures a balance between rewarding consistent performance and offering a safety net for recovery, making for a thrilling and equitable tournament.
