This Winter Split will see a Round Robin Group Stage with four groups of four teams. All matches will be best-of-five (Bo5). The winners of each group from the Group Stage will receive a bye into the quarterfinals in the playoffs. Meanwhile, the second and third place from each group will qualify for Round 1 of the playoffs. The fourth place of each group will, unfortunately, be eliminated.
The playoffs will be a single elimination bracket. Twelve teams will have to survive the bloodbath, with Bo5 matches in the first round and best-of-seven (Bo7) matches for the rest of the playoffs.
There are currently four regions competing this weekend for their first title of the Winter Split. The regions are North America (NA), Middle East & North Africa (MENA), and Oceania (OCE). You can check out the RLCS Winter Open schedule and live results for each region down below.
