All-new fan voting system brings fresh twist
ONE Esports MPLI 2023 introduces an all-new fan voting system that empowers supporters to determine the top eight teams in the first pool of the Group Stage. The remaining eight teams will be assigned to the second pool, where the two will be divided into Groups A to D, with matchups between teams in the first pool as follows:
- First seed vs eighth seed
- Second seed vs seventh seed
- Third seed vs sixth seed
- Fourth seed vs fifth seed
The remaining eight teams from the second pool will be randomly placed into Groups A to D, ensuring that each group comprises four teams. The Group Stage will feature a round-robin best-of-one (BO1) format. The top two teams from each group will advance to the Playoffs – group winners proceed to the upper bracket, and second-placed teams will compete in the lower bracket. The last two teams in each group are eliminated from the tournament.
Fan voting is currently underway. The results will be announced on November 7, and the final group placements will be announced on November 10 across ONE Esports’ channels.
Playoffs and Grand Final
The Playoffs of ONE Esports MPLI 2023 will feature a double-elimination best-of-three (BO3) format, with matchups set as Group A versus Group D, and Group B versus Group C. The Grand Final will showcase a thrilling best-of-five (BO5) format.
