This season the StarSeries organizers went on a serious change of the tournament format. So, instead of the Swiss system, GSL will be used with two groups of eight teams each, where all matches will be best of 3. The seeding of the teams will be in accordance with the HLTV rating.

The top two of each of the groups will fall into the upper bracket of the playoffs, and those who take 3-4 places will fall into the lower bracket. In this part of the tournament, we will see double elimination, best of 3. We hope that ua NAVI will perform well in Turkey and add a new item to their track record! #navination
