Let’s learn more about the event below!
Concerning the format, there will be two stages of competition.
Firstly, we have the Swiss Stage Format. Instead of a typical group stage, all teams will be competing in BO5 matches were only the top 8 will proceed to the Playoffs.
For those unaware, this means that opening matches will take place depending on seeding into this event. Following the opening matches, the competition will be divided into two lots, of teams who have won and teams who have lost their opening matches.
Another subsequent round will take place – qualification involves teams earning two victories with a maximum of five attempts.
Thanks to this format, we get to enjoy quite a number of matches early on.
To begin with, we have the opening fixtures, which are listed below:
- Karmine Corp vs James Cheese
- Gen.G vs PWR
- FaZe vs Moist Esports
- CLUB vs KCP
- Team Liquid vs Team Secret
- Version1 vs QUAD
- Oxygen Esports vs G2 Esports
- SSG vs FLCN
Otherwise, the 8 teams making it to the Playoffs will then compete through a Single Elimination Bracket, where all matches are a BO7. Accordingly, this means that teams only have one chance to make it through the next round – one loss means elimination.
Also note, that the final days of competition, December 10-11th, there will be a live crowd present!
