Four teams have been invited to The Summit 6 as the tournament's dates and full qualifier details have been revealed.

The tournament will take place between Nov. 16-20 at the Summit house and will feature a $100,000 prize pool. Qualifiers begin almost immediately, with open qualifiers taking place less than 24 hours after the announcement. The closed qualifiers are set to start on Oct. 10.

The four teams directly invited to The Summit 6 are Wings Gaming, Digital Chaos, Evil Geniuses and OG. Qualifiers are broken down into four regions: China, SEA, Europe and America. The teams directly invited to each qualifier are:

The Chinese, Southeast Asian and American qualifiers will all be double elimination while the European qualifier will have two parts, beginning with single elimination before a double elimination phase.

Wings Gaming return as the defending champions from The Summit 5, which took place in July and was a precursor to the Chinese team's TI6 victory. The Summit 6 will be the second in a series of North American appearances for many teams, with Northern Arena taking place in Montreal earlier in November and The Boston Major taking place in December.

Team Secret were originally a direct invite, but dropped out shortly after The Summit's announcement. Though the event initially planned a joint Western qualifier, the American and European qualifiers have been separated to allow a fourth team to qualify in Secret's stead.
