Qualifier Weekend Invitation
Players who finish in the top 250 of Mythic-ranked competitors will qualify to participate in the Qualifier Weekend shown below. Matches that finish prior to 12:00 p.m. PT on August 31, 2022, will count toward final season ranking for August, which determine invitations to the September Qualifier Weekend.
Players can earn the Qualifier Token for entry to a Qualifier Weekend by reaching maximum wins in a single course of a Play-In event that feeds that Qualifier Weekend.
There are typically two Qualifier Play-Ins each month:
- A Best-of-One event is held on Saturday, seven days before Qualifier Weekend.
- A Best-of-Three event is held on Friday, the day before Qualifier Weekend.
Learn more on the Qualifier Play-In Information page.
Information on what the Qualifier Weekend feeds, its format, and other details are available on the Qualifier Weekend Information page.
