Overview[edit]

Format[edit]

At the nomination ceremony, instead of picking players into groups, each player pick one player into his/her team, starting from the top 4 players of NEO Star League 2012 Season 1. 16 total players will be drawn into 4 teams.

  • Stage 1 - Working as a team

  • Third place team wins one and a half seed to round of 8.
  • Only one player from the last place team can advance to round of 8.
  • Stage 2 - Brothers into enemies
    • Once seeds have been decided, each team turns into a normal tournament group, in which 4 players will play a 4-man double elimination bracket to determine who will advance to round of 8.
  • Top 3 players from the winning team advance to round of 8.
  • Top 2 players from the runner-up team advance to round of 8. The third place player will have to play a extended BO3 series against the second place player from the third place team for one round of 8 spot.
