Following the 5 weeks of round robin League play, the top teams will go into the Playoffs. The Playoffs will be single elimination games for a spot in the Finals.
The teams will be competing for more than just a title. The 2018 Gfinity eSports Australia prize pool will be a whopping $450,000. The Elite Series prize pool will be broken down across 2 seasons, at $225,000 per season, with a split across each game title and overall club championship.
