Vasaslaget 2018 will be a Swiss-system tournament. In the first round fencers will be randomly paired, trying to avoid bouts between competitors from the same club. In subsequent rounds competitors will be sorted according to performance to meet another competitor with the same score or as similar score as possible. Exceptions can be made to avoid that competitors meet each other more than once. In longsword there will be six rounds, whereas in sword & buckler and rapier there will be five rounds. Thereafter the top 4 fencers will meet in semi finals and finals (including match for third place).
This means there are no times when pools start. After each round of fights everyone will be assigned a new opponent and must be ready to fence.
