All the games will be played in a best-of-three format. No English casters for the tournament has been appointed.

All the teams will be competing in an offline environment in a studio in Shanghai, China. The first game is set to begin on the 10th of May and will only be played every other weekend.

David 'GoDz' Parker from BeyondTheSummit tweeted earlier this morning that the tournament will ban the usage of Armlet on the Spirit Bear.

-Update-

As it turns out, it is the Armlet on Lone Druid ban is a miscommunication between GoDz and the organizers. It will NOT be banned.
