As was the case with previous editions, the upcoming event will be exclusive for players in the North America region, with separate servers for NA East and NA West. Interested players will have to form a team of three players (all over the age of 13), and should be residents of the United States or Canada. Players can register for the event by visiting the tournament’s official Battlefy page. Teams can select one of the four available qualifier slots:
Each qualifier round will allow up to 1,000 teams and will be played over a three-hour window. The top four teams from each qualifier round will advance to the Grand Finale, which is scheduled for Thursday, October 1. 16 teams from the qualifiers and 17 invitational teams will form the 33-team private lobby in the finals. The finals will be played over a five-game series, with the team accumulating the most points winning the big prize.
The team winning the tournament will win the lion's share of the prize pool - $30,000. Teams finishing 2nd and 3rd will win $15,000 and $5,000, respectively.
