Date: 30th of March – 7th of April 2019
Event: StarSeries i-League Season 7
Sixteen teams will come to Shanghai in China to fight for 500 000$ prize pool during StarSeries i-League Season 7. The tournament will last until April 7th, because all group stage matchups will be played in best-of-3 format.
Organizers of the tournament will once again make use of the Swiss Format. Identical situation occurred during 5th season of StarSeries when also every matchup of group stage was played as BO3.
The group stage will be held in a Swiss, best-of-3 format, which will determine 8 teams to advance into the playoffs stage. Playoffs, the quarter and semi-finals will be played in a single-elimination, BO3 setting, while the grand final will provide us with a best-of-5 spectacle.
We will see couple of very interesting matchups from the very start of the event. Especially Swedish derby between fnatic and Ninjas in Pyjamas are looking very promising. Both teams were recently in rather bad form but they will surely mobilize to prove which team has the best Swedish lineup at the moment. It`s also good opportunity for draken who is coming back to the active roster of NiP to prove himself as one of the most skilled Swedes on the scene.
Another exciting matchups will be definitely played between North and NRG, Tyloo and Renegades and BIG and Vitality. Winners of previous StarSeries events, ENCE and Natus Vincere will play respectively against Spirit and Vici.
