Select the Player Who's on Top of Your Match in the Bracket as "Home"...actual "Home advantage" will be decided by a "Cork" at the beginning of the match. Who goes first in corking remotely has no material influence on the corking outcome or the eventual game outcome because there are no darts in the board, each player throws, as in a traditional cork. This method is merely used to keep things moving.
1 Round of Count Up (Split Bull) to determine Home Team aka "Corking". Throw one round each and the player with the highest points wins. If tied, throw a 2nd round to determine the winner, otherwise skip the 2nd round of Count Up and begin the match. If somehow a tie remains once again, the higher seeded player/team coming into the tournament will be awarded the advantage (See Division Seeding Below).
Game 1: 501 O/O
Game 2: Cricket
Game 3: 501 O/O
Game 4: Cricket
Following Game 4 if you are tied 2-2, the next game will again be a "Cork" game of Count Up. Same as before.
Game 5: 501 O/O
MAKE SURE THAT THE APPROPRIATE PERSON IS SET TO THROW FIRST EACH GAME PRIOR TO STARTING. Utilize the "Swap Teams" option to change the order. It's much easier if the team on top of the bracket match controls this so both teams aren't trying to "Swap" at the same time.
If at any time someone wins 3 CR/01 games, select cancel match and report the result.
Do NOT count Cork games as wins towards the match!!
Any player prematurely cancelling the match will be considered a forfeit and their opponent will be awarded the win.

**New as of 11/11/17: Each bracket's Champions will earn 3,000 Promo-Nation points on top of their winnings
**Tournament averages may be different than season-starting averages.
***If a player plays for multiple operators, their highest known average may be used for remote tournaments.
****If a player does not have an PPD average, either 10x the player's MPR or an new player starting average will be used for the tournament, whichever is higher.
*If opponent shoots out of turn, back up the dart & immediately make contact with the opposing team. Many issues can be resolved by practicing good communication.
**If there's an issue or protest, halt play immediately until a resolution can be found. Once an agreeable resolution has been found, resume match.
**If internet goes out at location and cannot be resolved in a timely manner, the team has the option to move to a nearby secondary location if available (contact the league coordinator to have location added). The other option is that the team without internet would forfeit their match so the tournament may resume in a timely fashion.
*Seeding figured by teams combined MPR x combined PPD to assign them a "Combined Team Rating".
