With EPICENTER due to begin shortly, we have prepared a viewer's manual with all the information you should know ahead of the $500, 000 tournament, including schedule, on-air team as well as prize distribution.

Carrying out a first event within Moscow, EPICENTER has moved to St. Petersburg for its 2nd edition, running till Sunday and featuring ten teams, six of whom had been directly invited by the organisers, Epic Esports Events.

EPICENTER 2017 will begin with a four-team wildcard stage, featuring two best-of-three series, which will determine the last two sides making it to the double-elimination group stage, in which almost all matches will be played in a best-of-three format.

The top two groups from both groups will progress towards the single-elimination knockout Csgo skins for sale stages, which will culminate using the best-of-five grand final, on Sunday mid-day.

Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill and Janko "YNk" Paunović will sign up for event host Alex "Machine" Richardson at the analyst desk, whilst two famous casting duos will provide play-by-play commentary during the matches.
