The tournament format will see a double elimination GSL Format. The eight teams will be divided into two groups of four teams each. Two teams from each group progress ahead into the Playoffs.
The Virtus pro organisation has seen a roster revamp of late. After a year of dismal performances, the organisation changed up their roster by a large margin. The team now has players such as TOAO, Snax and Byali.
The return of Snax and Byali definitely suggests a huge shift in strategy from the team as well as the players. The players failed miserably in their attempt to establish themselves as strong players outside of the Polish region.
