Grand final, 2X100 and 75 winner, doesn't add up to 300? In addition, being a BO9, if it ends up as a 5-0 win, the loser ends at -25.

Thanks for hosting another great 1v1 tournament, looking forward to it!

Yes, in Best of X, players should start with 0 and win $x per win. Imagine score was 4:4 - in the last game, the winner gets $25 + $75 champion's bonus. Result: winner gets $200, 2nd gets $100. Hope this clears it up :)

5:0 -> winner gets $300, 2nd gets $0.

(5x $25 + 4x $25 from opponent + $75 bonus = $300)

If you wanna toy around with the variables: I've created a js script on aochub. Didn't get around to finish the one for BoX yet, so here's the google spreadsheet it's based on :)

Blackforest is NOT explored, it is same as all other maps. :)

In BoP, clearing (a blackforest like map) was played on non explored. This map is much more predictable than clearing and won't be so difficult to scout.

If it was 4:4, both are at $100, in the last game winner gets $25, loser loses $25. Result winner gets $200, loser gets $75.

That is how it is written. $25 is missing.

Forget about the $100 for a moment, plz. It's 9 x $25 + $75 bonus, which equals $300.
