The Rumble Stage is going to be executed as a single elimination bracket, and the same goes for the Knockout Stage starting on the 27th. There will be no more bo1 matches, only bo5, and the first-place team from Rumble Stage will get to choose either third or fourth team as their semifinal opponent.
