2017 EU Summer Challenger Series Qualifiers

With MSI 2017 over, it’s time to get ready for Summer. We’ll be kicking things off with the EU CSQ to determine the two teams who will qualify into the Challenger Series for the Summer Split. Here’s everything you need to know about the 12 teams competing, the schedule and where to watch!

What’s on the line?

The EU CS Qualifiers will see teams competing throughout the week to determine the top two teams that will be promoted into the Challenger Series.  The 12 teams will be separated into two groups and compete until only four teams remain. The top two teams from each group will face off in two Best of 5 matches. Two of them will stand victorious and advance to the the next tier of competition: the EU Challenger Series.

All games will be played on patch 7.10, with all champions enabled. We’ll also be implementing the 10-ban system for Summer. The format and qualification process remains the same as it did for Spring, for a refresher on how it all works click here.
