What's the format for Masters Berlin?
The tournament will consist of GSL style group play, followed by an eight team single elimination bracket. Teams were first sorted into four draw pools based on a combination of their respective final placements at the Challenger events and their regional strength.
- Pool 1: NA #1, EMEA #1, KR #1, BR #1
- Pool 2: NA #2, EMEA #2, LATAM #1, SEA #1
- Pool 3: JP #1, BR #2, KR #2, EMEA #3
- Pool 4: NA #3, SEA #2, JP #2, EMEA #4
Next, each team in a pool will be randomly drawn into one of the four groups (Groups A-D). If at any point a team is drawn into a group which already has a team from their region, then they get placed into the next alphabetically sequential group. The only exception to this are teams from EMEA, which as a result of having the most representatives at the tournament, can have two teams drawn into a single group.
During the Group Stage, teams will compete through a four team, double elimination bracket to identify two winners from each group. In the first round of each group, teams from Pool 1 will face teams from Pool 4 and teams from Pool 2 will face teams from Pool 3.
After the conclusion of the fourth day of matches, a random draw will seed the Knockout Stage. The four teams who will have advanced out of their group in 1st place will be randomly assigned a yet-to-be-determined 2nd place team from a different group. The teams then will play through an eight team single elimination bracket, with the first round seeing teams who placed 1st play against teams who placed 2nd.
