Overall, there will be three stages of competition.

Firstly, we have the Group Stage, which features three groups of four. Within each group, a double elimination GSL format will take place, with BO1 matches. Basically, teams at this stage will be doing their best to seed into the Play-In Stage.

Below find the teams for each Group listed together with the opening matches:

  • A: Vitality, OG, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Astralis
  • Vitality vs OG
  • NiP vs Astralis
  • B: Natus Vincere, Complexity, G2 Esports, Team Liquid
  • Natus Vincere vs Complexity
  • G2 Esports vs Team Liquid
  • C: FaZe Clan, Evil Geniuses, Heroic, BIG
  • FaZe Clan vs Evil Geniuses
  • Heroic vs BIG

Depending on the placing in the Groups, teams will be seeded into the Play In Stage as specified:

  • 3-4th – Quarterfinals
  • 2nd place – Semifinals
  • 1st place – Finals

Seeded into three single elimination gauntlets, all matches are BO3. Notably, winners from each gauntlet advances directly to the Fall Finals.

Meanwhile, second and third from each gauntlet will advance to the Last Chance Stage and fourth will seed into the Fall Showdown.

As you can imagine, the Last Chance is the final opportunity for teams to make it directly to the Fall Finals. Here, another single elimination with BO3 matches will determine that winners advance to the Fall Finals and losers will have to fight through the Fall Showdown.

  • #1 – Natus Vincere
  • #2 – Team Vitality
  • #3-4th – G2 Esports, OG

Besides these standings there are the likes of FaZe Clan who have been the best team all year.

However, following the player break, who knows what’s going to happen?
