The tournament will be swiss format with each match being 1 race. Match pairings for the first round will be determined by seeding which will be done according to SRL rankings on the Super Metroid leaderboard. Seeding is determined on the day of the signup cutoff (Feb 11th), so you have until then to increase your SRL ranking and improve your seed should you wish to do so. Runners that are not ranked on the SRL Super Metroid leaderboard will be randomized and placed at the bottom of the seeding.
After 5 rounds (which may change depending on the amount of entrants) the top 8 will be seeded into a single elimination bracket for the finals.
This is a multi-category tournament. The category for each match will be randomly selected from a pool of 5 categories after each player vetos one option.
