  • Pairings will be random for R1 (avoiding group/clubs where possible), and will use Swiss Style for rounds 2 and 3.
  • Please note that non-thematic matches are likely due to this event not being a narrative event (eg there will likely be allies vs allies events, and terrain may not match where battles actually took place)
