The biggest and most highly-anticipated Call of Duty tournament of the year is quickly approaching.

The 2018 Call of Duty World League Championship is set to take place in Columbus, Ohio from Aug. 15 to 19. Thirty-two of the best teams in the world will head to the Nationwide Arena to fight for their share of the $1.5 million prize pool.

Half of the teams for this tournament have already been locked in—the 16 squads competing in the CWL Pro League secured their spots in CoD Champs 2018 when they qualified for Stage Two. But the remaining 16 spots are up for grabs, and the CWL just revealed how prospective teams can qualify.

The Last Chance Qualifier will be held before the Stage Two Playoffs at the MLG Arena in Columbus on July 24 and 25, which means all of the LCQ matches will be played on LAN. Fourteen North American teams, seven European squads, and the top APAC lineup in terms of CWL Pro Points will be invited to participate in the LCQ. The Stage Four champions of the National Circuits for the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and Australia, as well as the Stage Two winners in the Mexican and Brazilian pilot regions, will also compete in the LCQ.

All of these LCQ teams will battle it out in a double-elimination bracket for a shot at qualifying for the biggest tournament of the year. The goal is simple: Win two series before you lose two, and you're headed to CoD Champs.
