The top four teams from each qualifier round will advance to the Grand Finale, which is scheduled for Thursday, October 1. 16 teams from the qualifiers and 17 invitational teams will form the 33-team private lobby in the finals. The finals will be played over a five-game series, with the team accumulating the most points winning the big prize.
