After hyping up the All-Star series for the past week, Gears of War and MLG have announced details for the round robin tournament, including the 19 players that will be a part of the player pool.
With four players selected as team captains, 20 players will be put on four different teams and compete against each other in best-of-one games on Gears Fight Nights.
Nineteen players were announced for the draft pool, with the 20th player being selected via fan vote on the Gears of War website.
After the teams play each other top two teams will face off at Vegas.
The draft is scheduled for the April 26th edition of Gears Fight Nights, where the Fan Vote player will be announced, and there are strict rules in place for international and same-org players.
One international player is allowed per all-star team, and teams cannot select more than one player from an organization at the time of the draft.
As expected, OpTic Gaming, Echo Fox, Team EnVyUs, and eUnited all had three players make the cut for the all-star tournament, with international powers Splyce and Epsilon getting two all-star nominees.
Here’s a look at the team captains, player pool, and those that can be chosen as the 20th player:
