The StarSeries & i-League returns for its 7th Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Season. The tournament will feature an increased prize pool of $500,000 USD. For the seventh season, StarSeries will return to the best-of-three format for the Swiss stage - which StarLadder describes as "the most successful and objective system" - after the previous event used a best-of-one format in the opening stage.
