TWC 2016 European qualifier announcement

 We are introducing the last regional tournament before the Main Event starting in October - the European Qualifier, which will fill out the last 3 remaining open spots in The World Championships 2016. No less than 48 countries will be represented this year in the battle for a trip to Belgrade.

As a reminder, The World Championships is a nation based global CS:GO tournament where nations from all over the world will play in 6 continental qualifiers for a place in the 8 team, $100,000 LAN finals. The qualifiers will be broadcast from our studios in Belgrade with the LAN finals taking place in a massive arena where you can come support your nation live at the venue.

France will try to defend their trophy that's for sure, but who will be a part of their starting lineup this year?

Tournament Format:

Due to the massive number of teams, we have split the Qualifier into 3 stages: Qualifying Round 1, Qualifying Round 2 and the Main Qualifier.

Qualifying Round 1: 32 teams are split into 16 seeded and 16 non-seeded teams based on last year’s results.
The seeded teams are: Turkey, Belarus, Serbia, Latvia, Ukraine, Bosnia and Herzegovina, United Kingdom, Romania, Lithuania, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Italy, Switzerland, Georgia and Ireland.
They will be paired up with the non seeded teams: Bulgaria, Croatia, Moldavia, Macedonia, Luxembourg, Albania, Montenegro, Israel, Malta, Austria, Greece, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia and Uzbekistan.

Qualifying Round 2: Top 8 teams in Qualifying Round 1 will advance to QR2 where they are awaited by another 8 seeded teams based on last year’s results. Those teams are: Iceland, Slovakia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Spain, Portugal, Finland and Denmark.  Both Qualifying Rounds 1&2 are set in a Single Elimination format.

Main Qualifier: 8 teams advance out of QR2 into the Main Qualifiers where 8 top European seeds await them: Russia, France, Poland, Netherlands, Norway, Belgium, Germany and Sweden. Unlike the previous rounds, the Main Qualifier start off with a Group Stage of four groups with 4 teams in each. Two qualified teams join two seeded teams in each group and two best teams advance out of each group. From there on 8 of the best European teams battle it out in  the Playoffs as they play a GSL system to determine 3 teams who finally complete the lineup for the Main Event - the LAN Finals in Belgrade!

Last year finalist Poland is full of young talented players, can they go one step further this year, and lift the trophy?

Match Format:
In both Qualifying Rounds 1&2 all matches are played in a best-of-three format. Afterwards, the Group Stage of the Main Qualifier is fixed to a best-of-one format except for the decider matches which are a best-of-three. The Main Qualifier Playoffs are also played in a best-of-three format.

Time and Dates:
August 8: Qualifying Round 1 begins
August 22: Qualifying Round 2 Draw
August 23: Qualifying Round 2 begins
August 27: Main Qualifier Draw
August 29: Main Qualifier Group Stage

With Penta struggling lately, we wonder who will fill majority of the Germany  national squad in TWC 2016 qualifications?

We know that everyone are eager to find out team rosters, so we will start reveling from August 4th up to four national team rosters per day, so stay tuned for more information.
