Red Bull is steering clear of the round-robin format it used in the last two years. This year, Home Ground will opt for a modified swiss stage, which will only host two rounds of Bo1 matches. The first round of matches was seeded by placing the first seed against the eighth, the second against the seventh, and so on. In the second round, teams will be matched by opposite seeds and first round results.

The top six teams at the end of these two rounds will move to the playoffs.

The eight group stage teams were seeded according to their current roster and 2023 achievements. The Home Ground 4 seeds are:

The top two teams from the group stage will be placed into the semifinals, while the remaining four will battle amongst themselves in the quarterfinals. The first two rounds of the playoffs will be Bo3, while the grand final will be a Bo5.
