The tournament, which consists of an online qualifying round, Regional tournaments for Europe and North America, and finally a Grand Final tournament in ELEAGUE’s Atlanta arena, will have players competing for $300,000 prize pool. Anyone with a strong enough team can enter, so interested players can sign up here. The regional tournaments will also be livestreamed on Twitch, with the Grand Finals presented live on TBS on September 30th.
