|The main reason we have instituted Divisional play, through the Eliters
Division System (EDS), is to provide a new “playground” for a
significant player base that wishes to compete regularly against comparably
skilled opponents in Longer-Format Matches where luck is minimized and skill
can be expected to determine the outcome.
EDS is designed as an ongoing series of True Round Robin Tournaments in a
Match Play format, based on Divisional alignments and contested in two 14-day
Play Periods each month. Players will be seeded into Divisions of 10 Players
each, and at the end of each Play Period the Divisions will be realigned based
on performance in the just-completed Play Period.
In EDS Tournament play every Player completes a match against each other
Player in his/her Division during each Play Period. In other words, every
Player in an EDS Division plays 9 matches per Play Period, against common
opponents, and Divisions will be realigned after each Play Period.
