The MLG Pro League Season 3 Relegation Tournament is an invite-only event, to the bottom four teams from Season 2, top eight Pro Point teams submitted to MLG, and the top four teams that competed at the S3 Relegation Tournament Online Qualifier.
Three-day spectator passes are available for $35 on MLG’s website, allowing a visitor to have general admission seating at the MLG Arena.
The format of the event will be in the traditional Double Elimination Bracket setting. All matches will be played in a best-of-five series. All teams will start in the Winner's Bracket. After losing a match (if any), that team will fall into the Loser’s Bracket. A loss in the LB results in elimination from the remainder of the tournament. The finalist from the Winner’s and Loser’s Brackets will face off in the Grand Finals on Championship Sunday.
Seeding is determined off of the Season 2 standings for the bottom four teams within that season, and by the MLG North American Pro Point Leaderboard for the remaining 14 teams, as of 9:00 AM EDT on Friday, May 29.
