Our only invited player this time around will be last year's winner (and 2x Champion): Maru!
After the qualifiers are concluded and we have our 16 participants we will perform a GSL-style group selection where players nominate each other. This way we will ensure full transparency and a bit of added spice for the players.
The main event will be held from April 28th to May 1st. Exact times will be announced after the qualifiers conclude. 4 groups of 4 players each will lead into an 8 player single-elimination playoff bracket. You can find all infos on Liquipedia.
