What to expect
According to the official announcement, there will be over twenty teams in this event. What’s more, there will also be open qualifiers that will be available to any team. The open qualifiers will be held from September 6-9, 2019, whereas the group stage will take place just a week later.
Format of the Event
Every team that wishes to play in this event will have to go through the Open Qualifiers. Having said that, the top two teams from each group (there will be four of them in total) will advance to the Group Stage. All matches will be Bo1 outside the semifinals and the Grand Final, which are Bo3.
The Group Stage will be played in the popular Double Elimination format. In terms of the playoffs, eight teams from the group will play alongside the four directly invited ones into the quarterfinals. Unfortunately, the format will be a Single Elimination bracket, which means that the teams will not have a room for mistake.
Here is the prize pool distribution:
1st place - $50K USD
2nd place - $10K USD
Expect more info about the event soon. Also, make sure to read the full announcement HERE.
