Viewer's guide: This is how the Eleague Major The New Challengers stage will be played

1
The Eleague Major 2018 Main Qualifiers, which is now called the New Challengers Stage, runs from January 12-15 and sees 16 teams face off to try claim their spot in the main event.
The teams taking part in this portion of the Major come from two different avenues, some were the bottom eight in the PGL Major Krakow Group Stages, whilst some qualified through the Minor systems.

16 teams will be participating in The New Challengers Stage, to find out which eight teams will progress to take on eight of the teams who retained their Legend status from the previous Major.

Participating teams

The sixteen attending teams have been split into four seeding pools as seen below. With Flash Gaming taking the position of TyLoo who had to pull out of the event due to visa issues. Team Liquid will not be at their full strength, as they are playing with their coach, Wilton "Zews" Prado instead of their newest player, Lucas "steel" Lopes, due to event rules.

Format and schedule

The first round of the group stage sees each team from Pool One facing a team from Pool Four, whilst each team from Pool Two will take on a team from Pool Three.

The Swiss format is being used, in which teams are required to either win three matches and progress or lose three matches and be sent home. The teams will always play against another team with the same record as them and will never play the same team twice.
