The offline event will be held in three phases - the League Stage, the Playoffs and Grand Finals.
As per the BGMS Season 2 format, the Launch Week will witness each team play a total of six matches over three days. The points accrued from this round will count towards the overall standings of the League Stage.
Following the BGMS Launch Week, these 24 teams will be seeded into three groups of eight each. The top 16 teams will qualify for Super Weekend 1. The remaining teams will wait for League Week 2.
