ESL One Malaysia 2022 format
ESL One Malaysia has a total of 12 teams participating, seven were directly invited and the rest participated in qualifiers in order to make it into the event. Four of those teams will make their share of $400.000.
Each of these 12 teams will be split into two groups of six, where teams will play against each other in a round-robin group stage. Each of the series will be a best of two. At the end of the group stage, the top two teams from each group will move on to the final double-elimination playoff bracket. The third and fourth place teams will move on to the lower bracket of the playoff bracket and the remaining teams are eliminated from contention.
In the case of tiebreakers, a team’s head-to-head record will be accounted for, and if it’s still a tie, a 1v1 solo mid between two chosen players will ensue.
Here are the groups:
Group A: Alliance, Entity, Talon Esports, Team Aster, Team Secret, Thunder Awaken
Group B: BOOM Esports, Fnatic, Nigma Galaxy, OG Esports, Team Liquid, TSM
What is the ESL One Malaysia schedule?
The group stage for the tournament will run from Aug. 23-25, 2022 and the final playoff bracket will take place from Aug. 26-28, 2022.
