Championship Qualifiers Format & Rulebook!

Jul 20, 2023

Hi, Chief!

Now that we’ve been through the main traits of the Championship Qualifiers, let’s dig deeper into the format!

As we mentioned in our previous article, the Championship Qualifiers will be divided into 5 stages with different formats in each phase. Here’s a breakdown of each format:

  • Stage 1: Ladder - All teams start with 1000 ladder points and will win or lose points depending on the amount of points they and the enemy teams have - if you win against a team with more ladder points than you, you’ll win more points than if the enemy team had less points than you! The ladder stage will last for 10 days, and all teams will be able to play a maximum of 40 wars during this period. Once the 10 days are over, the 128 teams with the most points will advance to stage 2.
  • Stage 2: Double elimination - The top 128 teams that made it from Stage 1 will compete in a double elimination bracket - all teams will play matches and be eliminated after the second loss until 32 teams remain.
  • Stage 3: Swiss - The 32 surviving teams will face each other in a Swiss bracket - 3 wins, and they move forward to stage 4, 3 losses, and they’re out!
  • Stage 4: Swiss - 16 teams will make it from stage 3 and again face each other in a Swiss bracket where whoever gets 3 wins moves to the last stage, and the rest are eliminated after 3 losses.
  • Stage 5: Double elimination - The final stage will be a battle between the remaining 8 teams in a double elimination bracket - the teams will compete until 4 teams remain and get the Golden Ticket to the Clash Worlds Finals or be out after 2 losses.
