    • 16 teams - split into 4 groups of 4.
    • Round Robin Bo5
      • Tiebreakers:
        • In the event of 2 teams being tied on the same record, a Bo5 tiebreaker match will be played out to separate the two teams.
        • In the event of 3 teams being tied on the same record, the following 3 tiebreakers will be used with the order outlined below to remove one of the teams from the contention towards a tiebreaker match:
          • Game Differential
          • Game Differential among tied teams
          • Initial Seed
        • When 3 teams tie on a 2-1 record, the team that places lowest within the tiebreaker criteria will be awarded 3rd place in the group. The other 2 teams will play a Bo5 tiebreaker match for 1st place.
        • When 3 teams tie on a 1-2 record, the team that places highest within the tiebreaker criteria will be awarded 2nd place in the group. The other 2 teams will play a Bo5 tiebreaker match for 3rd place.
    • Winner of each group qualifies to the Winners' Bracket of the Playoffs.
    • Places 2 and 3 of each group qualify to the Losers' Bracket of the Playoffs.
    • 4th place of each group is eliminated.
