Schedule

  • Registration Opens: Immediately
  • Qualifiers: Saturday, October 23rd beginning at 12:00 EDT | 18:00 CEST
Qualifiers

Saturday, October 23rd starting no earlier than 12:00 EDT | 18:00 CEST. Teams will use in-game commands to register and play a match against another team every 15 minutes. Each team will get 1 point for a match win, and half a point for a draw.

There will be 15 rounds with one 15 minute break for a total of a 4 hour qualifying day approximately ending at 16:00 EDT | 22:00 CEST. As the day progresses teams will be paired against teams with a similar point total with a bias against rematches. After the qualifying matches have concluded, we will take some number of teams (depending on the number of entrants) with the highest point totals for the bracket stage on Sunday.

The number of teams advancing to the invitationals will depend on how many teams play in the qualifiers. With a hard cap of 32 teams, the number of teams advancing will be calculated by taking the largest power of 2 strictly less than half the total number of teams. For instance, if 62 total teams register we will take the top 16 teams for the invitational.*

*Match time limits, amount of rounds, and invitational size are subject to change

Invitationals

Sunday, October 24th starting at 12:00 EDT | 18:00 CEST.
