Format

Formats are XML files that instruct the plugin to do a specific tournament format, i.e. having a Bo3 of CTW maps, or having several "rounds" of different maps and gamemodes.

Every format XML file must contain the base <format> module. The format module can also be a round and therefore can be used to create a nested rounds.
