The opening day of the ESL Pro League Season 10 finals features the only best-of-one matches in the event, using the now-familiar ESL format with double-elimination groups and a playoff bracket with six teams where the group winners directly get a seed in the semi-final. Thanks to some quirks with the seeding, we’ll get the chance to watch some top teams going up against one another even on the opening day of the tournament.
