All non seeded teams who have 3 team in their RR group will play a Crossover Match on their bye day. This will be against a team from another group of 3 in your division. Thus, for examples, if you have a bye in your RR group the first day you will have a Crossover match instead. Crossover matches will count towards your final record to make the semi's or finals (if only 2 groups) or to be a lucky loser. Please make sure to check the Crossover Draw for your match time and day. Naturally if you are in a group of 4 you won't have a Crossover match or if you are in a division with just 2 groups (80's). The Crossover matches are a new feature this year to insure most players get 3 matches. Please let us know on the review page at NSMTA.com after the tournament how you liked it.
