Playoffs and Finals (26-27 April, 29 April - 1 May, 6-7 May)
The eight teams will compete against each other in a double-elimination bracket, best-of-five until the lower bracket finals and grand finals which will be best-of-seven. For the first round, teams from the same-sub region cannot be drawn against each other, which means we'll only be seeing inter-region matches in the beginning, spicy!
