The tournament will have eight participating teams. FURIA, Cloud9 and Team Liquid were the teams invited to the North American tournament, which will take place online due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus (Covid-19). Triumph won the closed qualifier, and Ze Pug Godz was in second place, both guaranteeing a place. Evil Geniuses, 100 Thieves and Gen.G Esports were confirmed by invitation, but DreamHack announced that the teams would no longer participate in the tournament last Tuesday (4). Thus, Team One, Yeah Gaming and Chaos Esports Club took over.
The teams will be divided into two groups with four teams each. In the group stage, the format will be double elimination, with games played in better series of three maps (MD3). After the group stage, the top two players advance to the playoffs. Here, the format will be simple to eliminate, with games also on MD3 – including the grand finale.
