Format, prize pool distribution
The tournament consists of a Group Stage followed by a Play-In Stage. In the Group Stage, there are three double-elimination groups, each containing four teams.
All matches in this stage are BO3 format with the winners from each group securing a direct spot in the Fall Final. The remaining teams, which include the second and third place from each group, move on to the Play-In Stage.
The Play-In Stage features three single-elimination gauntlets, with BO3 matches determining the winners. The victorious team from each gauntlet advances to the Fall Final, while the other teams proceed to the EU or AM Fall Showdowns.
The prize pool is only $177,498 USD as it’s a group stage and what matters the most is qualifying to the main event where the big bucks are.
