Search and Destroy, where teams are split into attacking and defending sides, and the attacking team must eliminate the defenders or detonate one of two bomb sites. The final mode is Control, the goal is for either team to capture or defend two zones without running out of lives.
Every Major will have four weeks of matches, and teams will play five prescheduled online matches against set teams for three weeks. In the final week, teams will play in a Live LAN event in front of fans. The first Major will be hosted by OpTic Texas.
