"As we discussed formats with the League Ops teams from both regions, we came up with pros and cons for both Bo2 and Bo3 formats. Both regions agreed that Bo1 no longer served our best interests, and given the pros and cons of both Bo2 and Bo3, we decided to try out both and leave ourselves open to pivot in the future. Given the prevalence of Bo2 in many European sports leagues (specifically soccer…sorry, football), we decided to implement Bo2 format in a region where ties are both understood and accepted in sports culture. In NA, where there’s a regional sport tradition of avoiding ties, we chose to implement Bo3. We’re honestly not sure which format will be better; we’re going to be monitoring a variety of levers throughout the transition, and will review at the end of the 2016 season."
