The Tournament Format:

MLG vs Proleague is about pitting the best players from each organization against each other. Players from each side play each other exclusively each week, with no intra-region play happening until the playoffs. By the playoffs, all 24 KeSPA pro’s will have played all 24 global players.

The Playoffs:

In the playoffs, the format changes to narrow down each regions players until one player remains from KeSPA and one player remains from MLG. These two star players then compete in the finals for a winner-takes-all $10,000 grand prize. Along the way, the MvP Invitational will also determine 8 spots in MLG Dallas Fall Championship Group Play, 4 from KeSPA Proleague, 2 from NA, 1 from EU and 1 from Korea/Taiwan.
