Format[edit]

12 teams in two round robin groups of six. The winners of each group are placed into the tournament’s semifinals, while the second and third place finishers also have a playoff to decide who goes to the semifinals.

Tiebreaker[edit]

If a three-way tie occurs between the teams in fourth to sixth place, the total prize money for these slots will be split among them. If a three-way-tie occurs for any other three places, it will be decided in the following way:

  • The three teams decide their ranking order by playing three overtimes against each other
  • Overtime will be played for the tiebreakers, with a single map selected via veto with all teams participating in the vote
  • The tiebreaker is over when one team wins two matches during the first three matches - if each team wins a single match, the process is repeated

Prize Pool[edit]
