The group stage for the World Series of Warzone will take place over two weeks and will feature each group playing against other groups once in a five-drop matchup. The 32 best-performing teams from group play will be placed in the upper bracket, while the lower 32 will be placed in the lower bracket.

In the upper bracket, only the 17 best teams will move forward to the Qualifier Finals, while the other 17 teams will be sent down to the second round of the lower bracket. They’ll face off against 17 other teams who managed to scrap their way through the first round of the lower bracket, while the bottom 17 teams from the first round of the lower bracket will be eliminated from the competition.

After the top 17 teams are decided and the bottom seven teams are eliminated from the lower bracket, the lower bracket’s top 17 will be sent to the Qualifier Finals. But only the top 10 teams from the Qualifier Finals will make it to the Global Final. The other 24 teams from the Qualifier Final will meet with the 10 teams who didn’t make the cut from the lower bracket at the Last Chance Qualifier.

Only the top three teams from the Last Chance Qualifier will make it to the Global Final, alongside the top 10 from the Qualifier Final and one trio from the APAC region, two trios from LATAM South, and three trios from LATAM North. With this final day, all of the remaining teams will battle it out for a chance at greatness.
