The basic tournament rules are being used with these additions and modifications.


The tournament will be played as a Double Elimination Bracket with every match being a Best-of-3, except the Grand Finals where an extended series is played, which means: the player coming from the winner bracket needs one Bo3 to win the tournament, the player from the loser bracket needs two Bo3s to win the tournament.


The mappool for the tournament consists out of five maps. Both players eliminate one map each (the player listed above in the brackets begins) and the remaining three maps form the mappool for the match. Afterwards, both players eliminate another map each with the remaining map being the first map played in the Bo3. Afterwards, the player that lost the previous map selects the next map from the mappool with each map being played at most once. (In an extended series this process is being done for both matches seperately)

  • Akilon Wastes
  • Howling Peak
  • Fractured Glacier
  • Star Station
  • Korhal City


If a player is 30 minutes late, he may be disqualified and replaced by another player who takes his spot.
