Chronology

The Boston Major is the first Major of the 2016-2017 season. The main event takes place at the Wang Theater in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. Notably, The Boston Major is the first publisher sponsored event to not feature a double-elimination bracket. Instead, the 16 participating teams will be seeded into a single elimination bracket based on their performance in the group stage.[1]

Format[edit]

  • Open Qualifiers - October 23rd - October 26th, 2016
    • Eight Regional Single-elimination Open Qualifiers, two brackets for each region.
      • The winners of each Regional Qualifier will advance to the respective Main Qualifier.
  • Main Qualifiers - October 27th - October 31st, 2016
    • Four Regional Qualifiers.
      • One group containing all teams, with the top four teams advancing to the Regional Double-elimination Playoff Bracket.
      • The winner and runner-up of each Regional Playoff Bracket will join the eight directly invited teams in Boston.
  • Group Stage - December 3rd - December 4th, 2016
    • Four groups of four teams
      • Bo3 GSL double-elimination format
      • The top seed of each group will get a random bottom seed from another group as the opponent in the Main Event.
      • The second seed will similarly face off against a random third seed as the opponent.
  • Main Event - December 7th - December 10th, 2016
    • Teams are seeded into a single-elimination bracket after the Group Stage.
