Format of all phases of the Major de Cs: Go
Since the last great format change, all the Major of Counter-Strike have followed the same operating scheme. A first round of Swiss format is celebrated with aspirants and contenders (16 teams) where only half can be classified.

After playing the first day under these conditions, a new raffle of crosses are carried out so that they have to face teams that have the same result: those who have won against those who have won and those who have lost against those who have lost. After each round, the process is repeated (equipment 1-1 against another 1-1, 2-1 against another 2-1 …) so that those who get three victories are classified and those who accumulate three defeats accumulate.
This format is repeated in the first two rounds, eight equipment is eliminated in each. All matches are at the best of a map except those that are at stake or classification , which are disputed for the best of three.
