The event featured an interesting format, with two ways to qualify for the Finals. The first qualifier was the “Play-In Stage”, where sixteen teams played through a double-elimination bracket for the top two spots. The top two teams then progressed through to the Finals, with an advantage.

Two more teams qualified through the “Last Chance Qualifier”, playing through another double elimination bracket. These two teams would also progress through to the Finals, but with a disadvantage compared to the two teams who came in through the first qualifier.
