The organisers Gfinity 3 have announced the tournament format of their upcoming event in London. The map pool of this event will be de_cache, de_dust2, de_inferno, de_mirage and de_nuke.
After deciding to replace de_train with de_cache in the map pool, the twelve team $45,000 tournament is to be held on August 2-3 and the format will be as follows.

Playoffs will then be played out using a standard single elimination best-of-three format for the top four teams in each group, with group stage finishes used as seedings in the playoffs.
