How 3v3 Teams works
Players from the opposing teams then take turns fighting in 1v1 matches, with the winner of a match carrying their remaining stock(s) to face the next member of the opposing team. Stocks lost by the victorious player in a previous match are subtracted from the player's stocks by self-destructing at the beginning of the next match. For example, if Player A defeated the other team's Player B with two stocks remaining, he or she would need to SD until only two stocks remained for the next match against Player C, who starts with full stocks. This continues until one crew runs completely out of stocks, in which case the other crew is the victor.
*stage bans only count for the round they are banned. E.g if player a bans Battlefield as starter stage it may be picked for game 2 unless it is rebanned before game 2.
Players may not pick a stage they have already won.
