The postseason schedule is here: Postseason Schedule
As a reminder, there are 3 levels of postseason play. The Playoffs include 10 players in a 1-on-1 bracket format and will determine the overall champion. The Wild Card is a single game, the next 2 rounds and the 3rd place matchup are best of 3, and the championship is best of 5. The winner will receive the (figurative) inaugural Trivia Crack Cup.
The Consolation Tournament starts with 15 players, and the bottom X number of players is eliminated each round until 1 player is left standing. The number of players per round are as follows: 15, 12, 9, 6, 4, 3, 2. The players highlighted in blue in the above standings will be participating in this tournament.
The remaining 28 players will play a 6-round challenge which will be scored by aggregate questions correct. Think of it as one large 72-question challenge, so the player with the most questions correct wins (with time as the tiebreaker). Rankings in the individual rounds don’t mean anything.
In an effort to keep everyone playing without a long break, players that are eliminated from the playoffs and the consolation tournament will play in an optional, non-scored daily game per the schedule.
