What’s on the line?
The EU CS Qualifiers will see teams competing throughout the week to determine the two top teams that will be promoted into the Challenger Series. The 12 teams will be separated into two groups, 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 6.24, with the new champion Camille enabled. We will still be using the 6-ban system for CSQ, with the 10-ban system being implemented for the start of the CS Spring Split. For more information about the format, and the qualification process, click here.
