However, we recently learned that players from Bren Esports (SEA Region) would not be able to participate in the tournament due to visa issues, so we will only see 15 teams at the Masters: Berlin Tournament:

The tournament format has four group stages comprised of 4 teams each, where the top 2 teams advance from each group. In the group stage, all teams play each team in their group one time in a Bo3 with 8 total teams across all groups advancing to the single-elimination playoffs.
