COMPETITIVE FORMAT

Group Stage

Just as for the Six Mexico Major, all 16 teams will be divided into 4 groups of 4.

The 4 teams from each region were seeded based on their final rankings in their respective regional leagues and playoffs. Each group was then created to have one representative from each region with only one seed per group. Here is the breakdown of the groups for the Six Sweden Major:

During the Group Stage, teams will compete in a Best-of-1 double round robin format, where each team will play all the other teams in their group twice. The point attribution system is as follows:

  • A win is worth 3 points.
  • An overtime win is worth 2 points.
  • An overtime loss is worth 1 point.
  • A loss is worth 0 points.

At the end of the Group Stage, the 2 teams with the most points in each group will advance to the Playoffs.
