Qualified players will receive a notification to register for the respective month’s MQ and please note that each region will hold their own Monthly Qualifiers.
The MQ will be played across two (2) days. Teams compete in Swiss-style the weekend after the CC. All matches are played in best-of-three (Bo3) with Bo3 games. Due to the Swiss-style bracket having no eliminations, Teams are encouraged to continue playing even if they’re out of contention for an MF slot since each win accumulates points to a WF slot.
You must have a Team of three (3) or four (4) players to be allowed to compete in the MQ. The Top eight (8) Teams from each region’s MQ will advance to the MF.
Every region will begin their MQ one week after the end of the previous CC.
Each region will hold their own MFs. Teams will compete in the Single Elimination Bracket. Quarter Finals will be played in a best-of-three (Bo3) set with a Bo3 games format. Semifinals and Grand Finals will be played in a best-of-five (Bo5) set with a Bo3 games format. Teams will have a minimum of six (6) games and maximum potential of up to fifteen (15) games.
The Top eight (8) placing Teams from each region’s MQs will qualify to participate in their respective region’s MFs.
MFs are played in the month following each season. Specific dates for MFs will be different for each region and time zone will be available in the ruleset.
World Finals consists of sixteen (16) Teams from seven (7) regions. It is slated to take place in-person in November. Tournament schedule to be announced at a later time.
Teams who have earned the most points throughout the Tournament year with respect to their region will qualify per their region’s allocated spots. Spot allocations will vary based on each region’s player density.
