Tournament format

The format will be kept the same as the previous majors.

There will be four regional qualifiers and two from each qualifier will move on to the main qualifier.

In the major qualifier, the top eight teams from the pool of sixteen will move on to the major. The teams will play in a 16 team Swiss tournament. Teams with three wins will move on to the major and teams with three losses will be eliminated. The teams that move on will be known as "Challengers".

The top eight teams from the previous major will receive automatic bids to the major; these teams are known as "Legends." The group stage of the tournament will also be a 16 team Swiss tournament. Teams with three wins will move on to the playoffs and become the new Legends. Teams with three losses will be eliminated and will be invited to the next major's offline qualifier.

In the playoffs, eight teams will play in a single elimination, best of three bracket. Teams will play until a winner is decided in the finals.

Map Pool

The map pool was changed for this major. Dust II was taken out of the active map pool and Valve reintroduced Inferno, which has been revamped since it was taken out.[3]

The veto process was also changed for the best of one games. One team can decide whether to veto first or second. The team that vetoes first will remove two maps. The second team will remove three maps. The first team will then choose from one of the two remaining maps. The second team will then choose the side it wants to start on. The best of three veto process was unchanged. Each team will remove one map. Then each team will choose one map. For the decider map, each team will remove one more map to decide the third map.

Maps

Cache
Cobblestone
Inferno
Mirage
Nuke
Overpass
Train

Playoffs will be played in "Tauron Arena"

Yeah but because of their fans. For example PGL Major Krakow was not at his best, a lot of technicall issues were during the games.

The cybersports fans are doing great! My friends and I play CS:GO every day, and of course we watch all the tournaments. It's like a tradition for us to get together at each other's houses and cheer for our favorite team. Especially our dream is to get a capsule with an exclusive sticker for watching a match, which is rare. We can't stop believing that one day we'll get one too! When watching the tournament, the eye pleases with cool weapon skins on the cyber athletes. I immediately want to go to globalcsgo.com/trading-sites and buy myself the same cool skins and stickers. Your analysis is useful, keep up the good work!
