What is the format for EPICENTER 2019?

The group stage games will be decided in best-of-three, with the winners of the games heading to a winners match-up while the losers head to an elimination game. The losers of those will be sent home, while the winners will take on the losers of the winners match up to decide their seeding for the playoffs.

Once there, the bracket becomes a single-elimination format, while the game stay as a best-of-three. The grand final will also be contested under a best-of-three, where the winning squad will take home $250,000.
