For those wondering what their Pyramid finishing position means, here is a reminder.

Pyramid Promotion, Relegation & Play-Offs

The Pyramid will run annually, and players may move up or down a Division depending on their finishing position.

Finishing positions in other specified tournaments will provide additional automatic qualification routes for players to win a place in a higher Division. These tournaments are: WCO 2017, WinterTourn 2017/18 and Champions League 2018 - and will be referred to as 'the 3 Majors'

Automatic Promotion and Relegation through Pyramid

• The winner of each Core Division wins promotion to Apex
• The top two of each Base Division win promotion to Core
• The bottom two of Apex will be relegated to Core
• The bottom two of each Core Division will be relegated to Base

Automatic Promotion through the 3 Majors

• Top 2 (of any of the 3 Majors) win promotion to Apex
• 3rd to 8th (of WinterTourn 2017/18 or Champions League 2018) and 3rd to 10th (of WCO 2017) win promotion to Core

As some promotion and relegation spots depend on the results of future tournaments, some finishing positions in the Pyramid are potential promotion or relegation spots

Players in potential promotion and relegation spots will fight it out between themselves for the remaining places in the Pyramid Play-Offs - but only in the event that there are places left to play for

Pyramid Play-Offs: Potential Promotion and Relegation

• Players finishing 8th to 10th in Apex may be relegated to Core
• Players finishing 8th to 10th in Core may be relegated to Base
• Runners up of Core Divisons may be promoted to Apex
• 3rd place in Base Divisions may be promoted to Core
• 3rd and 4th place in the 3 Majors may be promoted to Apex
• 9th to 16th (of WinterTourn 2017/18 and Champions League 2018) and 11th to 18th (of WCO 2017) may be promoted to Core

In the highly likely event that positions in Apex or Core remain unfilled TC will first award invitations to players that qualified in the previous year but were unable to accept the invitation

The Pyramid Play-offs will occur after Champions League 2018
