Online Season Format Changes

In keeping with our commitment to exciting, balanced competition, there are some changes to our online season format this year.

In Europe, the format remains unchanged from Season 3. We have 2 groups of 6 teams in a single round-robin, with all matches being best-of-three (Bo3). The top team from each group will advance directly to the Season Finals, while the second team from each group will participate in a decider match (Bo3), the winner of which will also proceed to the Season Finals.

However, North America and South America will see changes this season. Each region will feature a single group of 8 teams. The first and second teams of each region, based on a single round-robin match system, will advance directly to the Season Finals. As with Europe, all matches will be best-of-three.


New to ESL Impact Season 4 is our exciting Requalification process! We're raising the stakes and heating up the competition, offering the Top 8 in EU and Top 4 in NA & SA a chance to secure their future. Will you rise or fall? 🤔
