Teams will be announced around one week before the tournament will take place. All players in a team will be from a different company to encourage networking. The round robin format will be used for the regular season games. Each team will be put into groups of 4, where they will battle against each other once. The top team from each group afterwards will advance into the playoffs. Playoffs will follow an elimination format (i.e. If the top team from Group 1 defeats the top team from Group 2 in their first playoff game, the top team from Group 2 is eliminated from the playoffs.)
