Semifinal 1: Will (Group A 1st place) vs Match 2 winner
Semifinal 2: Scarlet (Group B 1st place) vs Match 1 winner

Final: Semifinal 1 winner vs Semifinal 2 winner

NOTE: When the top finishers in a division have the same records, the ties are broken as follows.

For a tie between two people, head-to-head records will be used.
For a tie between three people (or when the head-to-head is a tie), all three people will be set the same logic puzzle and seeding will be determined based on fastest solve time.

This is the same tiebreaker rule that has been used in the last two Snitch tournaments, though this is likely to be the first tournament where the logic puzzles are actually used!

Even though the round robin matches have been played, there are ties that need to be resolved before playoff seeding is completed.

In Group B, Scarlet and Shiloh have already punched their tickets in as the #1 and #2 seeds, respectively. But Emma and Shadow are tied for the final playoff spot... and they tied in their head-to-head match too! So there will need to be a logic puzzle race between the two to determine who gets the #3 slot.

In Group A, things are even more confusing! We already know that Cody, Darcey, and Will, with identical 3-1 records, have the three playoff slots of the division. But the head-to-head matchups between the three are a complete Condorcet paradox with each Seeker going 1-1 against the other two! This means... you guessed it... another logic puzzle race needs to be scheduled to determine seeding!

Once the races happen, we can finally have our playoffs!

The tiebreaker round has finally ended! In each round, a puzzle was prepared in advance (a different puzzle for each tiebreaker). The winning times were as follows:

Group B - Emma Borg (9:26) [puzzle made by Will]
Group A - Will Lestrange (9:01) [puzzle made by Tarma]
