CS:GO’s format won’t go through any changes in Season 8. The two best teams of the previous season will be joined by six qualified teams. These six squads will earn their spot in the league by playing the two open qualifiers. Each open qualifier will lead eight teams in a closed qualifier which will give out three spots in the League.
League of Legends, on the other side, will have major changes heading into its second comeback season. National qualifiers and playoffs are no more, as the format shifts into a more regional form. Teams from all over the region will play qualifiers which will give two spots each to the best teams in each qualifier. After this stage ends, these teams will meet in a double-elimination bracket to decide the new League of Legends champion.
