The teams were allocated into two groups of five, where a round-robin format determined the two top teams in that group. Those teams moved on to the semifinals, and the rest played out as you’d imagine.

Spike Nations of Twitch: Schedule & results
With the event having kicked off on 6 November, teams first battled it out in order to qualify for the semifinals which took place on November 8. The grand finale was later that day, and it was then that one country became the Spike Nations champion.
The overall winners of the tournament were Team Portugal, whose dominant performance throughout the tournament left analysts and casters speechless. Taking on Team UK in the final, their performance was insane, with the UK not even taking one game in the best of 3.
