With recent experience gathered at some of Europe’s biggest tournaments, they are ready to represent Sector One amongst EU’s greatest.

The online qualifiers will be played following a best-of-five Conquest format, where players have 1 ban. By the hand of double elimination, players are protected from direct knockout. These exciting duels will decide the 2 best players of each continent, who will advance to the live finals on July 1 and 2.
