Format: Conference B: http://challonge.com/VBSL2GB VB Cup (Playoffs): Each week you play a best of 3, you start on the map that corresponds to the week (i.e. for week 1, your starting map is Akilon Wastes). The winner of a game then vetos a map and then the loser picks a map (for the Bo3).
VBSL 2 will be a two-part tournament. There will be a 'regular season' and playoffs. The regular season will consist of two 'conferences', based on seeding. Each player will have to play each other player from their own conference once during the regular season. The top 4 from each conference will then qualify for the playoffs. The playoffs will be the same as the old VB Cup (8 man, double elimination).
Players will be seeded via the Clan Ladder or the previous VB Cup into 2 conference. From there there will be a round robin in each of those conference where players will play each other players in their conference once.
You will have 2 weeks to play this match or face forfeiting the match. The format for these matches will be a best of three, starting on a stated map for each week. The loser of a game will pick the next map from the tournament map pool.
