Players will participate in GSL style group play during the first part of the tournament. All matches will be Best of 5. The top 2 players from each group will advance to the Quarterfinals on the second half of Saturday.

Each series starts with a Pick and Ban phase which allows the players to pick their decks for the upcoming games and ban their opponent's decks. Picks and Bans works as follows:

  1. Ban one deck from your opponent.
  2. Pick two of your decks.
  3. Ban two decks from your opponent's new deck pool.
  4. Pick two of your decks.
  5. Ban one deck from your opponent's new deck pool.
  6. Take your remaining deck.

The first game in the series will be blind-pick, meaning neither player knows what the other is playing. Game two and onward, the winner will choose their deck first (which can be their winning deck or another), followed by the loser picking their deck. Once a deck has been defeated, it is removed from that player's deck pool for that series.


All times below are in CET (GMT +2), and are approximate. Games sometimes go longer or shorter and the schedule may not be accurate.
