The ESL has revealed information about the upcoming major’s format. The final matches of the preliminary stage won’t feature a best-of-one format anymore with both New Challengers and New Legends now being best-of-three.
The seeding in the first round will be determined based on a team’s rating, which is formed during the brand new voting process (you can read more about it here). The rating will then change, depending on the team’s performance.
Let us remind you that IEM Katowice 2019 will run from February 14 to March 3. HellRaisers will begin competing from the Legends Stage thanks to making it to the top 8 of FACEIT Major: London 2018.
