The event will start on the 12th of October and end on the 17th and it will be streamed, 10 teams are going to participate in a double-elimination format on LAN, with the winner punching their ticket to Champions.
However, there is more, 8 of the 10 teams will be chosen according to their ranking on the VCT North America points standings, while the other two will be the winner and runner up from the Oceania region.
