3. Pairing and tournament procedures.
In parallel to the World Championship, a "team" tournament will take place. This tournament won't have any effect on the individual championship and will only influence the pairing at each round.
Teams will be composed of 3 to 6 players playing usually against each other (in practice, players living close to each other). In order to allow the players to meet opponents they don't usually face, 2 players from the same team won't play against each other if another pairing is possible.
Furthermore, at the end of the individual tournament, an average performance will be calculated for each team in order to determine the best Dungeon Twister World Team.

The tournament and the championship will respect the rules of the
Tournament Codex that will be posted online shortly.
