Teams will play a single round robin Bo1 within each group to determine the top two teams. These teams will then advance to an 8-team single elimination bracket to see how they stack up against other groups and to find the two best teams in the Play-in, which will then advance to the second stage of the European Masters. The first round of the bracket will be Bo1, while the second round will be Bo3.
GROUPS AND KNOCKOUT STAGE
Similar to the Play-in stage, teams will play a single round robin Bo1 in their groups, to determine the top 3 teams that will move to the Knockout Stage. The top team of each group will receive a bye to the quarterfinals, while the second and third place teams will play each other to determine who advances. All rounds of the Knockout Stage are Bo3, and the finals are Bo5.
