DETAILS & FAQ’s

Divisions Offered

Below are the different divisions we offer for many of our styles along with who is expected to participate in each. You may only play in ONE of the PRO/Comp/Rec/Amateur divisions, but may also play in an O35 or U24 division.

PRO

The top division with teams who are used to competing at the National and International level, featuring top cash prizes and the best athletes in the world. Points and bids are awarded to this division.

COMPETITIVE

This division is for teams who may be top teams in their area and very experienced with top athletes, but no National experience or missing some key contributors to make a PRO run. Points and bids are awarded to this division.

RECREATIONAL

This division is for teams who are possibly experienced and still competitive, but newer as a team or lacking the top athletes to push the top divisions. Points and bids are awarded to this division.

AMATEUR

This division is for teams who just want to have fun, period. If you are new to the game, past your prime or just not typically very competitive but still want to enjoy playing in our events, this is the division for you. There are no cash prizes, no bids granted and no points used for ranking this division. Seeding is based on date of registration only.

O35

Our division for players 35 years of age or older. Age cutoff is the first date of tournament play, so if you are not 35 by that day you are not eligible to play in this division. All players MUST have a valid ID on them throughout the event to verify age in the event of a protest.

U24

Our division for players between the ages of 17 – 24. Typically a beginners division for teams coming out of high school or college so they don’t have to play against the older and experienced teams. Age cutoff is the first date of tournament play, so if you are 25 or older by that day you are not eligible to play in this division. All players MUST have a valid ID on them throughout the event to verify age in the event of a protest.

Hotels & Flights

HOTELS: We have already secured the hotels with the lowest possible rates where you can reserve your team block, without having to pay up front, and can even have your team players pay for their own individual rooms within your block! Click here to find a hotel!

AIRPORTS: The closest and largest airport we recommend booking through is DFW, which is about 20 minutes from the facility. You may also book through Love Field, especially if you’re flying Southwest, which is about 35 minutes from the field.

Division Caps

To ensure our event is of the highest quality and best overall experience for the players and staff, we have implemented hard division caps for how many total teams we can accept in each. We are expecting each division to fill completely before the registration deadline, so make sure you register ASAP to avoid being left out.

Draft Party

Thursday, May 23, 2019
More info coming soon!

Draft Seeding

Pool Play Seeding is based on when you select your first game on media night during the draft. All teams with 5 or more teams in their division will battle to select their placement on the schedule, where you’ll have a say in who you play, what time and on what field. Captains will select which seed they want on the schedule in reverse order of their Battle™ Points ranking, and you can take any spot on the board, bumping out another team if desired, who would be forced to take an open spot.

HOW IT WORKS

Team A has the least Battle Points and selects first, and is on the clock (1 minute to decide) . They select the 5th seed on the schedule so they can start at a later time. Team B is up next, and selects the 1st seed to avoid being in the same pool as Team A. Team C is up next, and decides they want to bump Team A out of their spot and steals the 5th seed. Team A then is forced to take an open spot on the board, and selects the 2nd seed place themselves in the same pool as Team B who they think they matchup well against. This continues all the way through the draft until the last 3 teams are left. The only rule exception is that if any of the top 3 teams get bumped out of their spot, they are allowed to bump again. So if Team Z has the most points and is the last to draft and bumps Team X out of their spot who was the 2nd or 3rd highest points, Team X would be allowed to bump another team out so they’re not stuck with the only open spot on the board having earned a top 3 draft position. The team they bump would have to take the last open spot on the board, and the draft would be complete! It is a fun way to select your pool play positions and gives each team some input on when, where and who they play!

Pool Play

We do pool play here at the FFWCT, but with a twist to make sure pool play matters and every game counts. Click here for more information on how and why we use pool play for our major tournaments.

Schedule Blocks

Since we do pool play, we’re able to do schedule blocks so you’re guaranteed to be able to play in atleast 2 styles, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You can still play in multiple styles that may overlap, but we cannot guarantee anything and will not be accommodating any schedule requests.

However, a player CANNOT play on multiple rosters in the same format (i.e. 5v5 Contact PRO and 5v5 Contact Competitive). You CAN play in multiple formats though (i.e. 5v5 Contact PRO and 4v4 Non-Contact PRO).

Guaranteed Games

3 game guarantee – 3 pool play games on Friday & Saturday plus single elimination bracket on Sunday for top teams in each division of 7v7, 8v8 & 9v9 formats.
4 game guarantee – 4 pool play games on Friday & Saturday plus single elimination bracket on Sunday for top teams in each division of 4v4 & 5v5 formats.

Playoffs

The number of teams that make playoffs will be determined solely by the number of teams in each bracket. The breakdown is as follows:

3-4 teams = 2 Teams in Playoffs
5-8 teams = 4 Teams in playoffs
9-12 teams = 6 Teams in playoffs
13-16 teams = 8 Teams in playoffs
17-20 teams = 10 Teams in Playoffs
21-24 teams = 12 Teams in Playoffs
25-28 teams = 14 Teams in Playoffs
29+ teams = 16 Teams in Playoffs

After you finish all of your pool play games, playoffs brackets/seeds will be determined by factors IN THIS ORDER

  1. Overall Record
  2. Head to Head (ONLY applies if EVERY team with the same record played each other directly)
  3. Point Differential
  4. Points Against
  5. Points Scored
  6. Battle Points
  7. Registration Date
Prizes

Trophies, Cash Prizes (most divisions), 5X Battle Points, MVP Awards for PRO divisions, Championship Rings, and Full Paid Bid to 2020 Battle Orlando National Championships.

Flags

ALL TEAMS will use Sonic Flag-a-Tag flags for all 4v4, 5v5, 7v7 AFFL-Style, 8v8 Screen and 9v9 divisions (mushroom flags ARE allowed in 4/5/7/8man screen styles). Triple Threat flags will be used in all 7v7 Screen and 8v8 Contact formats. ALL TEAMS must provide their own flags, you can purchase them on-site as well but they will not be provided.

Rules
Paid Bids

If you earned a full or a 1/2 paid bid through winning any of the FFWCT regional, state or national championship events this year that you’ll be redeeming for Worlds, you’ll want to register your team in the “My Team Has a Paid Bid” division. This will allow you to pay the $50 deposit that is required no matter what so we know the team is coming, and will ask you for your division in which we will then move you to that division in short order and will lock you into your registration date for points. If you had a 1/2 bid, we will apply your credit and you will still have a small outstanding balance that will need to be paid before the deadline. For teams with a full bid, this is all you’ll have to do other than we strongly encourage you to book your hotels or housing through our registration so you get the best deals possible.

Roster Maximums
  • 4v4: 15
  • 5v5: 15
  • 7v7: 30
  • 8v8 Coed: 30
  • 8v8 Contact: 30
  • 9v9 Contact: 30
  • Youth 5v5: 12
Refund Policy

All payments are final as of April 1st, 2019, and no refunds will be allocated for teams not attending of their own accord but may request a credit towards any FFWCT operated tournament within a calendar year. If a division is cancelled, a full refund will be given regardless. Click here to read though our full terms and conditions.

Schedule Requests

We do not take schedule requests here at FFWCT. We have pre-made schedule blocks that you can find by scrolling down below, so you can see what time which formats play to avoid schedule conflicts.

You can also impact your first games start time by selecting a better spot during the draft during media night.

KNOW YOUR CONFLICTS

SCHEDULE BLOCKS

** ALL ADULT FORMATS WILL PLAY FRIDAY & SATURDAY POOL PLAY, NO EXCEPTIONS **

The graphic below lays out which divisions will and will not overlap. The top 1/2 shows the morning block, and some divisions we are guaranteeing will not overlap even within the block. The afternoon block will not conflict with the morning block AT ALL and also has some formats that won’t overlap within the block as represented in the graphic. As an example, a team could play 8v8 Screen Coed PRO, 5v5 Non-Contact Women’s PRO, 5v5 Non-Contact Coed PRO and 7v7 Screen Women’s PRO OR 8v8 Contact Women’s PRO without overlapping at all at any point throughout the tournament, guaranteed.

PLAY MULTIPLE STYLES

We guarantee scheduling to not conflict between the Morning and Afternoon Blocks.  You are guaranteed to be able to play in at least one format in each block, allowing you to play on multiple teams.

You may NOT play in more than one division of a single format. i.e. If you are on a roster for 4v4 PRO, you may not play in 4v4 Comp or Rec, but you could play in 5v5 Non-Contact Rec in a different format. You CAN however play in an age-restricted format, such as 5v5 U24 or O35 along with one other open division of that style.
