How to get into top 4:  SK Gaming being our current 4th seed going into week 10 there are a few ways they can guarantee they keep that spot.

  • 1st Place Finish
  • If SK places 2nd, and Agilitas places 1st, this will knock Team Coast Blue out of the top 4, and both teams (SK & Agilitas) will advance to the Pro League
  • If Agilitas wins in the Round of 8, Agilitas cannot place higher than 2nd, and SK needs to finish at least 3rd.
  • If Team Coast Blue wins in the Round of 8 AND SK Gaming win in the Round of 8.
