The Challengers Stage and the Legends Stage of the ELEAGUE Major 2018 will be played out using the Swiss format, the tournament organizer has confirmed.
Min-Sik Ko, the VP of Tournament Operations at ELEAGUE, revealed details on the format that will be used at the upcoming Major.
The decision was made to continue using the Swiss format for both the Challengers Stage (formerly known as the Main Qualifier) and the Legends Stage (formerly the group stage of the Major).
The Swiss format was first used at a CS:GO event during the Main Qualifier for ESL One Cologne 2016. The format was then accepted and utilized for both the Main Qualifiers and the group stages of the two Majors that were held in 2017, ELEAGUE Atlanta and PGL Krakow.
