The qualifiers will be held on-site and is open up to 64 teams. Eight teams from this qualifier will go onto one of the four groups. The group stage will have a GSL format and the games will be played as a best-of-one.

The top two lineups from each group will advance to the single elimination playoffs where in order to advance, the teams will have to top their opponents in a best-of-three series.
