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 three home levels that they will play as their home levels throughout the entire season. Any Descent 1 level can be used, but roncli has the right to deny a level if it has excessive 4D content, is too heavy on mega missiles, has visually unpleasing aesthetics, or is otherwise difficult to observer and commentate. When matchups are made, one player will play in one of their home levels as picked by their opponent.

Games in the qualifiers are contested under DCL rules, which means games are to 20, win by 2. Cloak and invulnerability powerups should be banned if they exist in the level. 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 3 times 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
Five 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 sixth spot, and will feature any players tied in the 6th position and enough players under them to have at least 4 pilots in the match. Game is played to 10 times the number of players involved, and the level to be used will be agreed to by the pilots involved.

The tournament will be a single elimination knockout tournament. Home levels will remain the same as they were throughout the season.

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. Cloak and invulnerability powerups are still banned. 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. The lower seeded player may choose to select a different level from the higher seed's set of home levels. The game is played to 5, win by 2.
