Tournament Format

Online Qualifiers

There are two ways to qualify for the Finals:

  1. Finish in the top 8 of any Open Qualifier.*
  2. Score the highest point total across all qualifiers.

A total of 128 players will take the field for the Summer Circuit Grand Finals.

*Players who already qualified through the Open Qualifiers (Top 8) won’t be able to join other qualifiers to ensure new players have a shot at earning a Grand Finals slot.

Day 1 features a swiss format. Play six rounds against players of similar skill whether you’re a rookie or an all-star. Find enough holes in the competition to reach Day 2, the elimination bracket. The top 128 will play best of 3 matches. Outplay opponents into the top 8 to qualify for the Finals. Turn up the heat in these best of 5 faceoffs for the Open Qualifier title.

Qualifiers start at 7 PM EST / 4 PM PST.

Step back into the box in multiple qualifiers for more prizes and points. The more points, the better your seeding in the finals. Moving up in the seeding is like moving up in the batting order, except your chances of standing on top of the competition increase instead of your chances of standing at the plate.

Overall Ranking - Points Distribution

Round the bases deeper into the bracket to earn more points from every qualifier. Outscore your opponents to steal a spot in the Finals!

Last Round Played Points
Round 16 30
Round 32 15
Round 64 5
Round 128 2

Seeding

Players qualifying directly will be seeded based on their final rank in the qualifier, where the earlier qualifier will get the better seeding.

I.e. First place from Qualifier 1 will get Seed 1, First place from Qualifier 2 will get Seed 2 and so on.

The remaining seeds will be filled based on the global rankings.
