Qualifier Pack
Full Song Pack Pack

Play Rules

Each match will be played using the Card Draw system. For all matches leading up to semi-finals, 5 songs will be randomly chosen from the song pack. Both players will have the opportunity to remove 1 song and protect 1 song. The 3 songs remaining will be played in order from how they were randomized unless BOTH players agree on a new song order. If both players do not agree, then it will be played in the order the card draw shows.

The higher seed will have the choice of the following 3 options: Choice of Pad Side (Left or Right), Choice of Song Removal (1st or 2nd), or Choice of Song Protection. Lower seed will get the 2nd choice, and the remaining 3rd option reverts back to the higher seed. The first player to win 2 songs will move on to the next round.

For Semi-Finals through Grand Finals, 7 songs will be randomly chosen. Both players will have the opportunity to remove 1 song and protect 1 just as before. The remaining 5 songs will be played from in order from how they were randomized unless BOTH players agree on a new song order. If both players do not agree, then it will be played in the order the card draw shows.

The higher seed will have the choice of the following 3 options: Choice of Pad Side (Left or Right), Choice of Song Removal (1st or 2nd), or Choice of Song Protection. Lower seed will get the 2nd choice, and the remaining 3rd option reverts back to the higher seed. The first player to win 3 songs will move on to the next round.

For Grand Finals, the first player to reach 3 songs will be the victor. If the player who reaches 3 songs first is the player coming from the Losers’ bracket, the bracket will be reset and both players will play a second set of separate songs. The player of this set will be crowned winner.
