Base on an 8-team format, each team will play at least four games* (i.e. can only lose four times at most!) While even number of teams is a basic requirement for the format, in addition to the 10-team and 12-team variations, we added a “twisted” bracket^ so in case nine is the final number of teams (see below).
Possible brackets when there are more than eight teams:
- 9-team (new)
Match-ups will be determined by random draw while “Team I” will be determined by the following order if applicable:
- Champion of previous Southorn Basketball Flag (the Flag);
- Champion of the latest Southorn Basketball League (the League);
- A lottery of new team(s) which did not play in the latest League;
- The highest ranked team of the latest League, if all nine teams were previously in either League or Flag;
- True random.
“Team I” and “Team J” will follow the arrangement of the 9-team settings mentioned above.
- 12-team (the “original” format in 2010)
“Team 9 to 12” will follow the arrangement of the 9-team settings mentioned above. (Same as in 2010)
Points to note:
- * The “minimum number of 4 games” only guaranteed in 8-team and for non-seeded teams in 9-team and 12-team format.
- ^ A 11-team format may be developed, but to be finalized.
