With the first group stage now behind us and half of the 16 spots at the Pro League Finals already filled, 24 teams will be taking part in the second stage with hopes of nailing down a place at the main event, in Odense.
In Europe, the top two sides from both groups will advance to the LAN finals, while in the Americas only the group winners will earn spots at the main event.
In both regions, all eyes will be in Group B. The two DreamHack Masters Malmö finalists, fnatic and Vitality, have been placed in the same group, which also features FaZe, while Renegades and FURIA are also set for a rematch after recently meeting in the lower bracket final of StarSeries i-League Season 8.
In the Asia-Pacific region, in which the matches will be played in an online setting, only the group winners will claim spots at the Pro League Finals, with TYLOO and Grayhound being the red-hot favourites to come out on top.
