There are two stages of competition to look forward to. Firstly, it all starts with a Group Stage with two double-elimination format (GSL) Groups:

From each Group, progress to the Playoffs is as follows:

Once in the Playoffs, a single-elimination bracket with BO3 matches will determine the competition.
