4 up from level 2
1 up from level 3
3 down from level 3
1 down from level 4
= 5 at level 3.
Unless you propose either the winner / loser at level 4 is eliminated from the pyramid completely to free up the space required. ...[text shortened]... ut today but the thought is fresh so wanted to write it out.
P.s. Nice idea though
Yes, it wasn't clear was it. This is what is how it should read...
Level 4 - 16 team knockout. 8 Progress (none come down, it's knockout all the way!)
Level 3 - 8 Teams. 4 progress (again, none come down, they are eliminated.
Level 2 - 4 Teams in an ALL Play ALL knockout. Winner plays the Champions.
There is one thing though. If Clans pull out after a particular stage (say they get to stage 3 and drop out) then they need to be replaced in some way. Either the extra clan should be taken from the elimination of the stage above, or something else. Any thoughts?
