Our players are almost done with preparations and are ready to encounter Ukraine Luminosity.

Format, map pool and ban/pick order



  • Group stageGSL-system Bo3 (or Double Elimination). Four best teams of the group stage will get to playoff.
  • PlayoffsSingle Elimination Bo3.  Grand final is Bo5.


Official map pool



Ban/pick order


  • Group stage and playoffs (Bo3): each team bans one map until only 3 of them are left. ESL randomly picks one of the maps for the teams to play on. The  higher-seeded teams determines the first team to ban the maps. The team, which was the first to ban, has the right to choose the side.
  • Grand Finals (Bo5): each team bans one map, and then picks one map, on which it would like to play. After the teams have banned 2 maps and picked two maps, ESL randomly chooses one map of the remaining three as the fifth map. Each team can choose the side on the rival's map. The tossing determines sides on the fifth map.
