Come meet members of the Dallas Fuel Team, and watch some of your favorite college rivals battle it out!
The tournament will consist of two stages, a double-elimination group stage and a single elimination knockout stage. The top two teams from each four-team group will advance to the knockout stage.
The group stage will follow GSL formatting to ensure consistent number of games. In each group, there will be two matches to begin the stage. The winner of each of these matches play against each other, and the winner of that match will advance as the first seed out of the group at a record of 2-0. The loser of this match plays the winner of the loser’s match to determine who will be the second seed at a record of 2-1.
After the group stage, the remaining teams will compete in the knockout stage. Quarter finals will be Bo3 between the first and second seed from different groups. The winner of each quarter final will advance to the semi-final which is also a best of three. The remaining two teams will compete in a single Bo5 in the finals.
Maps and matchups for each round will be announced day of the event.
