League System
There will be 4 groups with 8 teams in each group. Teams will play 7 rounds, playing each team once, with maps randomly selected for each round (1 different map for each round). A win grants 3 points, a draw grants 1 point and a loss grants 0 points. The top 4 teams from each group will advanced to the playoffs stage. If there is a tie in the league stage, we will use round difference as a tiebreaker. The playoffs stage will be double elimination with the top 8 seeds placed in the upper bracket and seeds 9 to 16 placed in the lower bracket. Upper bracket games will be best of 3. The first 3 rounds of the lower bracket will be best of 1 and the rest of the games in the lower bracket will be best of 3. The grand final will be a best of 5 with the highest seed starting with a 1-0 lead.
