Besides there will be meeting between the groups. Three best teams will get into the spring season play-off, and the teams that take the first places, will make the semi-finals. In the previous seasons all teams played in the same group with rounds system. Teams played to each other twice and fought in the format best-of-1, and in 2016 summer season – in the format best-of-2. Six best teams got to play-off, and the first and second places from there automatically made semi-finals.
