Elite Eight (King and Queen of /v/)

From 4chan Tournaments Wiki

This article is about the Elite Eight for Queen and King of /v/. For the main tournament pages, see Queen of /v/ and King of /v/. To see general information on tournament Elite Eights, see here.

In the King and Queen of /v/ tournaments, the Elite Eight refers to the final eight characters left in a given contest, and thus, represent the quarter-final stage. Since most /v/ tournaments employ a 128-man single elimination bracket, the Elite Eight usually corresponds to Round 5. In this stage, all losers of the quarter-finals will play a separate four-man voting round afterwards in order to rank them from 5th to 8th. Likewise, the semi-final losers will also play each other to decide 3rd and 4th place.

First pioneered in /co/'s own tournaments, the Elite Eight has come to be seen by many as an honor only reached by the best of the best in tournaments. To help keep tournaments fresh, two rules have existed since the initial Queen of /v/:

  • Elite Eight Rule: Every time a character advances into the quarter-finals, they will be temporarily banned from participating in the next King and Queen of /v/ tournaments. After this period, they may be nominated in subsequent contests (until they either get into the Elite Eight again or win).
  • Champion Rule: All champions of King and Queen of /v/ are permanently retired and will be barred from entering in future editions.
