In addition, ACF rules will be followed regarding timing and tiebreakers. A preliminary round robin in the morning shall be followed by round robin playoffs in the afternoon based on win-loss records. Ties shall be resolved on the basis of points per bonus within brackets, and ties crossing different brackets shall be resolved on the basis of points per game.

The tournament will use the NAQT MS-19 set, meaning the top 15% will qualify for MSNCT.
