W3NL II – Regional qualifiers

Format (more informations here) :

  • Groups played in round-robin (all teams meet each other)
  • 1x 2v2 + 3x 1v1. All matches are mandatory. Bo1 ace match in case of a draw*
  • Rank is determined, in priority, by the number of points (1 point per map, no points for an Ace match), then the number of matches won, then number of maps lost, then score in the face-to-face match. A 2-0 victory gives 3 points to the winning team. 2-1 gives 2 points to the winning part, and 1 point to the loser.
  • Europe and America: 1st of each groups advance to Group Stage. 2nd places of each group will play an inbetween stage in form of a bracket. Each winner advance to Group Stage
    => A total of 6 teams advance to Group Stage.

* Example of an Ace match requirement:

Nation A vs Nation B
Game 1 : Nation A won 2/0 => Nation A score 3 points
Game 2 : Nation B won 2/0 => Nation B score 3 points
Game 3 : Nation A won 2/1 => Nation A score 2 points & Nation B score 1point
Game 4 : Nation B won 2/1 => Nation B score 2 points & Nation A score 1point

Final score is 6/6, therefore an AceMatch is necessary to determinate the winner – this extra point doesn’t count for the overall ranking, but will be used a major condition in case of tie-break. Nation A won ace match 1/0 => Each Nation scored 6 points to the overall Ranking and Nation A would pass to next round in case of tie-break with Nation B.
