Elimination Mode 3.0
Elimination Mode is back for a third season featuring some of the best American and European teams in a game mode where heroes can only be picked or banned once per series.
- Double elimination
- All matches besides final are best-of-three, final is best-of-five
- Heroes can only be picked or banned once per series
- Additional 30 heroes are banned each day by a public vote, as well as one hero banned out by SUNSfan, the so-called SUNSBAN.
- For the final only 10 heroes are banned by public vote, as 30 bans would not leave enough heroes to play five games.
Total prize pool for the tournament is $25,000 (USD) spread among the teams as seen below.
