THE FORMAT


DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca will begin in a traditional group stage, consisting of 4 groups of 4 teams. The first team to win two matches in a row advances to the playoffs as first seed. The team to advance through the decider match will obtain second seed for the playoffs.

The playoffs will see teams advancing as first seed out of their group go up against teams advancing from their respective groups as second seed. Teams who were in the same group would only be able to meet again in the grand final.

The group stage stage will be played best-of-one map, except for the decider match, which is to be played best-of-three maps. Once reaching the playoffs, all matches will be played best-of-three maps. On top of this, there will be no matches happening simultaneously.
