  • Code Aicon.png Winner automatically advances to Code Sicon.png without going through the Up & Down Matches.
  • MLG Winner receives a GSL Code Sicon.png seed for the following month. (Even if the winner is a Korean player, the seed will be provided). If the winner turns down the Code Sicon.png seed or is already a Code Sicon.png player then the runner-up is given the seed.
Each group consists of 3 Code Sicon.png and 2 Code Aicon.png players, where the Code Aicon.png Runner-up is considered Code Sicon.png.
  • Each group's 1st and 2nd Place advance to Code Sicon.png.

  • South Korea Ticon small.png Ryung was also considered as Code S for the group drawings because he took South Korea Ticon small.png Rain's spot in the Up&Down Matches.
