WCS Spring Players List and Format Changes
As we head towards the second WCS Circuit event this year, it is time to reveal the first list of WCS Spring participants - as well as our new tournament format which was updated according to player feedback.
Let us start with the format updates first! As we previously mentioned, each player who drops out in the Group Stage of WCS Spring will get a second chance in the Knockout Bracket. Knockout Bracket consists of six rounds and has a single-elimination format: players who drop out in the Group Stage 1 will play each other in Knockout Bracket Round 1 and Round 2, fourth and third place finishers in Group Stage 2 will join them in Round 3 and Round 4 respectively - and players who don’t manage to advance from Group Stage 3 will drop to Rounds 5-6 accordingly. Please look through our format update video to get a general understanding of how the new format works:
