This tournament will be limited to EU teams, however there may be follow-up tournaments with a wider range.

On ESL it's an open sign up so will it be the first 4 who check in are playing or will the tournament size be expanded? + who will be the ''legendary'' teams and how will/are they ( be ) determined ?

Hyped to play in this tho.

4+4=8

Not really an answer to my question.

If for example 12 "challenger" teams sign up, the tournament won't be extended to 16 slots?

Also originally the plans were to host this tournament on 120 hz servers, is there any progress in fixing recoil patterns for this tick rate or are we gonna play with random/broken recoil on multiple weapons?

Yes, that is an answer to your question.
There's 4 pre-determined "legends" that are not revealed until the tournament starts and 4 teams chosen from all the signed up teams (however I don't know if they are chosen first-come-first-serve or differently).

Therefore 4+4=8.
