Format for Six Berlin Major
The Six Berlin Major 2022 will feature 16 teams from North America, Europe, Asia -Pacific and Latin America. Just like the Six Charlotte Major, all regions will have four teams each in Berlin. The Major will begin with a group stage with the 16 teams divided into four groups.
Furthermore, each group will contain a mix of teams from different regions. So, teams from the same region cannot be in the same group. Ubisoft released the group draw results for all the teams that qualified for the major after the end of the European League on August 1.
- Group A: DWG KIA, Rogue, Ninjas in Pyjamas and XSET
- Group B : FaZe Clan, Soniqs, SANDBOX Gaming and G2 Esports
- Group C: Wolves Esports, w7m esports, Oxygen Esports and Gaimin Gladiators
- Group D: Astralis, Elevate, MNM Gaming and FURIA Esports
All matches in the group stage will be a single-game double round robin format. The group stage will end on Aug. 17, with the top two teams from each groups advancing to the playoffs.
The Six Berlin Major quarterfinals and semifinals will take place Aug. 19-20. Both the quarterfinals and semifinals will be a single-elimination, best-of-three map format. Meanwhile, teams in the grand final on Aug. 21 will play a best-of-five series.
Fans can only attend the playoffs and the grand final as the group stage is not open to the public.
