How do qualifiers work?
Open Qualifiers will be split into three regions, Europe West, Europe East and Middle East & Africa. Hundreds of teams will go head-to-head, with the best 16 progressing to their Regional Playoff Ranking stages, where they will join eight invited teams. Those 24 squads will then lock horns to determine their ranks for the next stage, Regional Playoff Survival.
At Regional Playoff Survival, teams will play eight matches under the Winner Winner Chicken Dinner (WWCD) system. The rules are simple, claim a Chicken Dinner to progress to the Regional Playoff Finals. Once one roster progresses, they are replaced by the highest ranked team from the Regional Playoff Ranking. Chicken Dinners guarantee progression, but remember kills and placement points are important too!
After eight matches at Regional Playoff Survival, we enter the Last Chance phase. The final 16 teams play four matches, with total points scored determining the top eight who progress to the Regional Playoff Finals. Points earned in the WWCD matches carry over, so teams will need to be consistent – points will be tracked using the SUPER settings.
Finally, six matches will be played at the Regional Playoff Finals to decide which teams from each region will progress to the PCS4 Europe Grand Finals. These matches will be played using traditional SUPER settings, with three Europe West, three Europe East and two Middle East & Africa spots up for grabs.
Those eight teams will then be joined by eight invited teams at the Grand Finals.
