Everything to know about CS:GO's EPL Season 17

Format

Season 17 of EPL will feature a new format altogether, as the tournament features a total of 32 participating CS:GO teams for the first time in its eight-year history. The tournament will kick-off with a triple-elimination Group Stage, followed by a single-elimination playoff bracket.

In the Group Stage, all 32 CS:GO teams will be split into four groups of eight teams each. Each group will go through a triple-elimination bracket, after which the top four CS:GO sides will qualify for the playoffs.

Group winners will advance directly to the quarter-finals, whereas runners-up will proceed to the Round of 12 as High Seeds. CS:GO Teams that finish in third and fourth place within their respective groups will qualify for the Round of 16 as High and Low Seeds, respectively.

The ESL Pro League Season 17 Playoffs will feature the top 16 CS:GO teams in the tournament in a single-elimination bracket. All matches in the Group Stage and Playoffs will be best-of-threes, except the Grand Finals, which will be decided in a best-of-five series.
