On the 1st of April, sixteen best Baltic state teams began their journey in the BESL Pro Season 3 competition. For five weeks, teams battled one another in the Swiss group stage in order to find the eight best teams that would advance further into the next stage - the playoffs!
The final two weeks of the regular season saw all the ¼ final matches being played out with the top half of the bracket doing it first, while the bottom half followed suit the week after.
Now, after seven weeks of online play, the competition is transitioning to a LAN setting, where on the 1st of June, the four best teams are going to continue playing out the single elimination playoff bracket that began online.
As per usual - all the matches are going to be played out as best-of-three series with all of them being featured on the HyperTown esports stage.
