IEM Fall 2021 CIS organizers change the format of the final
The IEM Fall CIS RMR tournament’s format of the final, in which NAVI and Gambit will meet, was changed from best-of-five to best-of-three. This is what the organizers of the regional competition have announced on their social media platforms.
According to the Intel Extreme Masters press release, such decision was made in order to optimize the schedule of IEM Fall 2021 matches, which will be held in several regions throughout the day. It is reported that the organizers had preliminary discussions with NAVI and Gambit.
At the same time, the schedule of the European IEM Fall 2021 was shifted back one hour. The renewed schedule is available on the event's page via this link.
Let us recall that NAVI and Gambit have already secured PGL Major Stockholm 2021 spots, so the IEM Fall 2021 final will only determine the team to receive better prize money. Both of the squads will appear at the major, which will take place in less than a month, in a Legends status.
