Regulations:

IEM Katowice Major 2019 will take place from February 13 to March 3 in the Polish city of Katowice. Twenty four best teams will compete for a title and a significant prize pool. The event itself will include three stages.

Challengers Stage will run from February 13-17, featuring a Swiss format. The IEM Katowice Major 2019 organizers decided not to use a best-of-one format in the deciders. Therefore, both in the New Challengers and New Legends stages, matches will be best-of-three. Another important change is that the seeding in the first rounds will now be bases on the teams’ rating, which will be formed during the players’ voting. After that the Elo rating will change, depending on the teams’ performance. Only the top eight teams out of sixteen will advance to the next stage.

The New Legends Stage will kick off from February 20-24 and will feature the same system as Challengers Stage. When all the five rounds are over, the top eight teams will move on to the final stage and secure “Legends” status.

The New Champions Stage will be the final one and will take place from February 28 to March 3 with all games being played in a single-elimination best-of-three format.
