Format Change to ESL Pro League Season 14 Playoffs

For ESL Pro League Season 14 we will be changing the format for the playoffs. Based on feedback gathered from the community and in agreement with the teams and players prior to Season 14 of ESL Pro League, we will be removing the Play-In stage prior to the playoffs. 

Unchanged between the previous and the upcoming season is that three teams from each group will make the playoffs. The winning teams in each of the four groups, will advance directly into the quarterfinals, whereas the second and third placed teams of each group will proceed to the Round of 12.

We can’t wait to get underway with Season 14 of ESL Pro League, for now we wish all the teams a nice break so we can see them back on the server fully recharged and ready to go!
