Let’s see how this tier system lends itself to the format of this very exciting event.
To kick things off, we’ll have the New Challengers Stage. Running from 26th October to 29th, we have our first 16 teams to start the competition. Indeed, a 16 team Swiss System Format will take place.
Accordingly, each team will follow the new format – with Elimination and Advancement matches sitting at BO3 while every other game will be BO1.
At this point in time, the top 8 will proceed to the New Legends tier, with the bottom 8 being eliminated.
Moving on to the New Legends Stage, we’ll once again witness a 16 Team Swiss System Format with the same rules as the prior stage. This stage will take place from October 30th to November 2nd, and once again 8 teams will be eliminated and the top 8 move to the New Champions Stage.
Finally, we’ve reached the New Champions Stage. Now, instead of a Swiss System, a single-elimination bracket with BO3 matches will determine the final 8 teams.

With regards to predictions, we immediately look towards the Legends Tier. Bearing this in mind, our definite favourite would have to be Natus Vincere. Behind them, the likes of Ninjas in Pyjamas and FURIA Esports are examples of threats who could snag the win with some strong performances.
Otherwise, the lower tier teams will have to work a lot harder in order to even have a chance here.
