HomeStory Cup XX
The HomeStory Cup, organised by Dennis "TaKe" Gehlen, is a tournament where TaKe invites star players from around the world into his home to compete and socialize with one another. Providing multiple streams and interviews over three to four days, it is a fun atmosphere for both players and fans alike.
This time the event will not take place in the TaKeTV location in Krefeld. On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the HSC it will take place in the Tropical Islands near Berlin.
- Group stage:
- 4 groups of 8 players each.
- Round-Robin Bo2 matches.
- Top 2 of each group from the group stage advance to the Round of 8 Winner Bracket, 3rd and 4th place are moved into the first round of the lower bracket.
- The places in the groupstage are determined by the map difference. In the event of a tie, the following criteria are used to break it:
- Head to Head (mini league if more than 2 players are tied)
- Bo1 tie breaker match (round robin, if more than 2 players are tied)
- Double-elimination Bracket:
- All matches are Bo5.
- For the Grand Finals a Bo5 is played. If the player coming from the winners bracket wins then that player won the match. If the player coming from the losers bracket wins that Bo5 then an additional Bo3 will be played to determine the overall winner.
