3:28 but... how do they compete? is it on only one map or multiple maps? if so, how does it work exactly? do they play, like, for instance, on seven different maps and the first team to win 4 times wins? does the order get picked randomly?
In group stage the matches are all Bo1. In a Bo1 each team will continuesly remove 1 map from the 7 map map pool until the final remaining map that hasn't been removed by either team gets played. The amount of Bo1's a team needs to win in order to advance to the playoff stage varies depending on the group stage format (swiss system,double elimination,etc). In the end the top 2 teams from each group will advance to the playoff stage. In the playoffs they will play single elimination bracket Bo3's. In a Bo3 each team will remove 1 map from the map pool, then they will pick 1 map to play and then they will each remove 1 more map from the map pool and the leftover map gets played as the decider (e.g Team1 removes map A, Team2 removes map B, Team1 picks map C, Team2 picks map D, Team1 removes map E, Team2 removes map F, Map G was left over). The first one to win 2 maps wins the game. The final two teams who advance to the finals will also play a Bo3. And then, the team who wins that Bo3 will win the tournament.
