The exact format will be confirmed once all teams have signed up and final numbers are known upon confirmation of full invitee team numbers. For a 10 team scenario, the format is as follows:

  • Group Stage: 2 groups of 5 teams (BO1)
  • Single-Elimination Bracket (BO3)
  • Top 2 advance to R6 North Group Stage
  • Seeding based off previous seasons results

1st place in the group stage goes straight to the Semi-Final of the bracket. 2nd & 3rd advance to the Quarter-Finals of the Bracket.

Groups Points system:

Win = 3p
OT Win = 2p
OT Loss = 1p
Loss = 0p
