“THE SPRING FINAL SEEDINGS ARE IN.
Unfolding between the days of June 15th and 20th, the competition will be held exclusively online, as has been the general trend since 2020. The event will kick off with a two-day bracket of double-elimination Bo3’s, and then move on to a brief Upper Semis phase – with its corresponding Lower bracket – scheduled for the 17th and 18th; a ‘Consolidation Final’ and the Grand Final showdown are both set for June 20th, with the former preceding the latter by only a few hours (4:30 and 8:30 pm CT respectively).
In terms of monetary compensation, the humongous $450k prize will be divided thus: The largest chunk of the prize ($225,000) will go to the first place, $85,000 will fall to the second spot and a good $40k will go to the third best. The subsequent places will split the remainder in a similar scaling order.
Both Gambit and EvilGeniuses will be doing the starting honors on the very 15th with an early match set for 8:30 am CT (betting odds coming soon); they will be joined at 11:30 am by NiP vs Complexity. The following day will see G2 matching strengths with BIG at 5:30 am, while Natus Vincere will get its first shot against Faze by 8:30 am.
