Yes! Feel free to stream your POV in any Open Qualifiers games.
The Open Qualifier will be best-of-threes. Each match will consist of up to three games, each of which will be first-to-five round wins. If both teams are tied 4-4 after eight rounds, the game goes to Overtime. In Overtime, the first team to get two (2) points advantage will be the winner.
The winning team will receive points based on the result of the best-of-three. A 2-1 match win earns 2 points, but a 2-0 match sweep earn 3 points.
The Online Circuit will be best-of-one round robin. Each match will consist of one game, which will be first-to-six round wins. If both teams are tied 5-5 after ten rounds, the game ends in a draw.
Points will be given in the standings to teams based on map result. 3 points for a win, 1 point to each team for a tie, and 0 points for a loss.
Ties in the standings will be decided by round differential. Eg. If “Team A” wins 32 rounds and loses 12 rounds, and “Team B” wins 31 rounds and loses 22 rounds, and both teams are tied in standing points, Team A takes the higher placement in the standings.
At the end of four weeks of play, the top two teams advance to the Season One LIVE finals.
The online circuit will be played across four weekends in October. They are October 6-7th, 13-14th, 20-21th and 27th.
The Season One live Grand Finals will take place on August 4th in Montreal at the Olympia Theatre.
The Season One Live Finals will be FREE to attend.
