For each win, a team will earn one point. Losing a match will result in a one-point deduction. The top four teams from each group will proceed to the playoffs with the bottom two teams eliminated. The top two teams from each group will proceed to the upper brackets while the third and fourth placers from each group will fight their way into the lower bracket.

Last season, RSG MY dominated the scene after defeating Todak with a score of 4-2. It will be interesting to see how the two underdogs will perform in the upcoming tournament against the biggest names of the Malaysian Mobile Legends esports scene.
