Format

The Group Stage will follow a double-elimination (GSL) format, and all matches will be BO1. There are three groups with four teams each. All teams will advance to the seeded Play-In Stage.

The Play-In Stage will feature three single-elimination gauntlets with matches being BO3. The winner of each gauntlet will directly advance to the Fall Finals, and each gauntlet's second and third-placed teams will go to the Last Chance Stage. Lastly, the fourth team from each gauntlet will book a place in the Fall Showdown.

As the name suggests, the Last Chance Stage will become the only remaining way for teams to stay in the tournament. It will follow a single-elimination bracket with all games being BO3. The winners of the Last Chance Stage will advance to the Fall Finals. However, the loser will proceed to the Fall Showdown.
