There are two stages to the ESL Pro League Season 16 - the group stage and the playoffs. The group stage will see the teams play each other in a round-robin format. Each team wil play the other five teams in the group once in the group stage. 
All matches are best-of-three series and each group takes place over a period of five days. The best team in the group stage advances directly to the quarterfinals. The next two teams move ahead to the round of 12. There is a clear and distinct advantage for any team that tops the group stage. 

The playoffs feature best of three series throughout. As one of the most prestigious tournaments in the CS: GO circuit, ESL Pro League prides itself on best-of-three series all across the event. Unlike the group stage, however, the playoffs are all single-elimination matches, The Grand final is a best-of-five affair. The playoffs kick off on September 27 and will continue till October 2.

Started esports with Dota, moved to CS, then OW, back to Dota 2, and now a bit of Valorant. I love city-building games, and have spent hours in Cities: Skylines only to have the traffic defeat me. Currently on a reading spree - the aim is to read 150 books in 2023. Can I do it? Would you?
