General rules
• The NBA2K20 Blacktop Tournament is an online event, so can played wherever there is a console and satisfactory internet connection. Each player is responsible for having their own equipment (controller, console, etc.). The event will be played via Tournament.
• There will be no cross-play for this tournament. Xbox One participants and PlayStation 4 participants will follow the same rules but have two separate tournaments.
• Participants will get a 5-minute grace period. If a player is not ready to play 5 minutes after the scheduled game time, he/she must forfeit the game.

The tournament will consist of two stages played on consecutive days. Day 1 will consist of Pool Play, where all the participants are grouped into brackets and will play every one in their pool twice, accumulating points based on the results. The top four teams in each pool will return on Day 2 to participate in the Knockout Round, which will be a 48-player double elimination tournament, to determine the champion, and third-place winner.
