The main event will consist of the group stage followed by the playoffs. The 16 participating teams will be divided into 4 groups of 4 teams each. Every match of the group stage will be a best-of-one face-off with the top 2 teams from each group making its way through to the playoffs.

The playoffs will be featuring a best-of-three series except for the grand finals which will be a five-game affair. The tournament will be highly competitive as the $20,000 prize pool reserved for the main event will only be divided between the top three teams.

The team placing first will be walking away with the highest cut of around $13,000 while the runners-up will receive $5,000, the team placing third will get the final cut equivalent to $2,000.
