General Rules
The verison of Retro to use will be 1.4X5. It does not require manual tracker configuration. Download DXX Retro 1.4X5. If you're not sure how to install Retro, please visit http://descentchampions.org/new_player.php

Swiss Qualifiers
The first three qualifiers will use a 4-round Swiss tournament system. Players may join or leave the tournament at any time. Every player will choose a home level that they will play as their home level throughout the tournament. Any Descent 1 level can be used. When matchups are made, one player will play in their home level.

Games in the qualifiers are contested under DCL rules, which means games are to 20, win by 2. See http://descentchampions.org/how_works.php, under the Match Structure section. In addition to DCL rules, the host of the game must open up the game a minimum of 4 observers.

At the end of the tournament, players are awarded a number of Season Points equal to the number of games they won PLUS the total number of games won by each of the opponents they beat in the tournament.

Finals Tournament
Seven players will be invited to join the Finals Tournament based on their Season Points total. Prior to the Finals Tournament, an anarchy game will be played to determine the eight spot, and will feature any players tied in the 8th position and enough players under them to have at least 4 pilots in the match. Game is played to 40, and the level to be used will be agreed to by the pilots involved.

The tournament will be a single elimination knockout tournament. Every player will choose a home level that they will play as their home level throughout the tournament.

Rounds are decided by a combined score home-and-home series. Each game is played to 20, with no win by 2 rule in effect. The match can be ended when it is impossible for one player to win the series without the involvement of suicides. If there is no winner after two games, then a new game is played in the higher seeded player's home level, and the game is played to 5, win by 2.
