competitive format

group stage - february 13-17

The top 20 teams in the Global Standings at the end of the season will qualify for the Group Stage of the Six Invitational and be placed into four groups of five. Within each group, all teams will play each other once. The four first teams in each group will advance to the Playoffs while the last placed teams will be knocked out of the tournament.

The point attribution system is as follows:

4 points for a 2:0 win 3 points for a 2:1 win 1 point for a 1:2 loss 0 points for a 0:2 loss

playoffs - february 19-21

16 teams will qualify for the Playoffs from the Group Stage and will face each other in a double elimination bracket. All matches will be BO3 and each team will get a second shot at redemption after their first loss. Teams qualifying for the Playoffs will be placed in the bracket based on their seeding in the Group Stage as follows:

1st placed team in each group qualifies to the 2nd round of the Playoff Upper Bracket.

The teams that will rank 2nd in each group, will qualify to the 1st round of the Playoff Upper Bracket. They will get to pick their opponent amongst the 3rd place finishers from any group other than their own. The pick order will be determined by comparing the scores of all 2nd place finishers. Among the 2nd place finishers, the team that ranks the highest chooses first, and so on. If two 2nd placed finishers are tied in number of points, they will be seeded following the tiebreaker rules outlined in the competition's rulebook. 4th placed teams will be in the 1st round of the Playoff Lower Bracket.

The winners of each match will advance within their bracket, with the loser of a match in the Lower Bracket being eliminated from the competition.
