Rank Decision (Points Rule)
At the Global Championship, competition begins with a Rank Decision round. The purpose of this is to give the teams competing positions (1-32). Teams are grouped into four groups of eight. The teams on a group play each other in a round-robin format. Six matches are played daily in the first week of the competition.
The top 16 teams from this round qualify to start in the First Weekly Survival. Teams in positions 17-31 drop to a waitlist for the first weekly survival. The 32nd team misses out on weekly survival and goes to the Bottom-16 stage.
Weekly Survival (WWCD Rule)
On weekdays, 16 matches are played by the top 16. The purpose is to get '16 Chicken-Dinner Winners.' When it wins a game, a team qualifies for the Weekly finals and exits the Weekly Survival. The next team takes their place on the waitlist. This goes on until there are 16 teams in the Weekly Finals.
Bottom 16 (Points Rule)
Teams that fail to get into the Weekly Finals plus team #32 play in this stage to find participants for another Weekly Survival. Once numbers 17-31 are found, the round ends, and the bottom team drops to another Bottom 16.
Weekly Finals (Points Rule)
