2nd Face To Face Open Tournament Format

The tournament is open to all Generals League members, regardless of their skill level. It is scheduled on Sept 9, 2023 at Open Kitchen in Mandaluyong City.

Group Stage

The group stage will commence promptly at 10:30 AM. A 30-minute grace period will be allowed for players arriving late. By 11:00 AM, no latecomers will be allowed to participate.


Registered participants will be divided into four groups. Group seedings will be determined by the player Mawkins app rank, Generals League player ratings and our familiarity with the players skill.


In the group stage, each group will participate in a round-robin format, where every player within the group competes against each other once. Victorious players will receive 2 points, a default win is also worth 2 points, a draw will grant 1 point, and a loss results in zero points. The top two players with the highest point totals from each group will advance to the quarterfinals in a cross-over knockout match format. In case of a tie, the player without a default win will advance to the quarterfinals. If there is still a tie, the player who won their head-to-head match will advance to the quarterfinals. If their head-to-head game is also a tie, then both players will compete until a clear winner emerges.

Quarter Finals

In the quarterfinals, the first-place player from Group A will face off against the second-place player from Group B, while the top player from Group B will compete against the second-place player from Group A. The same arrangement applies to Group C and Group D. All quarterfinal matches will be a knockout match. The winner of a match advances to the next round, and the loser is eliminated from the tournament.

Semi-Finals and Championship Stage

Just like in the quarterfinals, semi-finals and finals round is a knockout match. The winner of the semi-finals will proceed to the finals, while the defeated players will compete for third place.
