Filling out your bracket

There are three (3) rounds total during the Initials Game Tournament Bracket Challenge. Prior to the first round of the tournament, you will fill out your brackets in its entirety. You will not be able to change your picks once the tournament begins. Once the tournament starts your bracket locks for the remainder of the Initials Game Invitational Bracket Challenge. The Administrator will update point totals at the end of each tournament game.

Bracket Requirements

If your bracket(s) is not submitted once the deadline passes, you are ineligible to play.


Point Values

A team will accumulate points based on the round in which each correctly guessed player has won. The chart below lists the point values.

Statistic Points Earned
Round 1 Correct Picks 1 Point (x multiplier)
Round 2 Correct Picks 2 Points (x multiplier)
Round 3 Correct Pick 3 Points (x multiplier)


Multipler points are seed-based, rewarding lower ranked players moving on in the tournament. For example, if the #4 ranked player for that group wins their first round matchup, they earn 1 point x 4 (their rank) to equal 4 points. If the #1 rank wins their first round matchup they earn 1 point x 1 (again, their rank) to equal 1 point. Same system holds true throughout the playoffs. If you pick a #4 rank to win the championship, it is worth 12 points (4 x 3). The rank is shown inside the circle to the right of their name.


Ties will be broken by comparing tiebreaker answers each owner will provide with final bracket submission. In the event that there is still a tie after all tiebreaker answers are examined, your league commissioner will decide the winner


As a user, you will fill out a bracket of who you think will win each round. Points are based on the amount of players you've correctly guessed to advance, accumulating more points the further you go in the tournament.
