Gambit Grand Final - NAVI will be played in BO3 format

ESL has revised the rules for the IEM Fall 2021 CIS final, changing the format of the fight. By the decision of the organizers, the Gambit - NAVI grand final will be played in the BO3 format, instead of BO5.

This decision is justified by the fact that according to the results of the RMR-cycle, both teams scored a sufficient number of RMR-points in order to guarantee getting to the PGL Major Stockholm 2021, simultaneously receiving the status of "Legends". In addition, the victory of one or another team will not change the alignments in the regional table, since NAVI broke away from Gambit by 205 RMR points, securing the first place in the CIS.

In addition, ESL has decided to move the start times in Europe forward one hour so that teams can complete the group stage before nightfall. Note that many players complained about time difficulties, including Twistzz.
