Format

The Tournament will be played Standard Constructed with All Stars Draft for Day 2.

Day 1 will contain bo1 Swiss Rounds (based on the number of participants) and the Top 32 will move on to Day 2.

Day 2 will seed the Players into Pods of 8, based on their Day 1 Ranking. (So, 1-8 will be Pod1, 9-16 Pod2, and so on). In those Pods you will draft with the provided All Stars Cube and play another three bo1 Rounds. In those matches, it is possible to play your Day 1 opponents again.

The combined Score of Day 1 and the thee Draft-Games will determinate the Top 8 which will play bo3 Single Elimination.

Side Event

Everyone who does not manage to secure a slot for day 2 is welcome to join our L3 Constructed Side Event.

The event will be played in bo1 Swiss (based on the number of players) and will not have a Single Elimination Top Cut. The Rounds and prizing will be determined by the number of participants.
