All-Star Showmatch[edit]

Details[edit]

The all-star match at ESEA Finals is not only for show, as it will determine which continent has the higher seeding,
which basically means either the set of 1-3-5-7 or 2-4-6-8.
The winner of the all-star game would have higher seeding, and an advantage in the map selection process, outlined below:

Higher seed is Home team, lower seed is Away team.
1) Away team removes 1 map from the 7 maps; 6 maps remain.
2) Home team removes 2 maps from the 6 maps; 4 maps remain.
3) Away team removes 1 map from the 4 maps; 3 maps remain.
4) Home team selects the 1st map of the BO3; Away team selects the side.
5) Away team selects the 2nd map of the BO3; Home team select the side.
6) 3rd map remains; Home team selects the side.
