PGL releases the schedule for the Bucharest Minor.

PGL has announced the schedule for the upcoming Bucharest Minor. It is the first DPC event of 2019. The winner of the Bucharest Minor gets a spot at the upcoming Chongqing Major.

The Group stage will see eight teams seeded into two groups. The Group stage will see a double elimination bracket with each match being a Best of Three series. The top two teams from each group will advance to the Playoffs via the upper bracket. The bottom two teams will also advance to the playoffs, however, they will be placed int he lower bracket. This essentially means that they have just one more chance to move further in the Minor and possibly qualify for the upcoming Major.

All the matches will be on LAN at the PGL Studios in Bucharest, Romania. The Grand finals [ which will decide which team goes to the Major ] will be a Best of Five series.
