EUROPEAN QUALIFIERS INFORMATION
May 29th, 2014
MSI Beat IT Global 2014 is about to start its first Qualifier on the 2nd of June for the European-based teams. There are however a few things that teams should take into account before the journey begins.
First of all, all the teams that registered for the European Qualifiers are required to have at least 3 players from Europe to be eligible to play in the tournament. If a team uses a standin to replace one of the 3 EU players, the standin also has to be from Europe.
Furthermore, every team registered for the Qualifier is required to have at least 5 members that register on the website and join the team, otherwise the team will not be able to checkin and therefore will not be eligible to play.
All the teams should note that the checkin time is from 15 to 17 CEST, on the 2nd of June. If there will be more than 64 teams, the limit will increase to 128 teams, however that is the maximum number of teams allowed, therefore the first teams to checkin will be the ones that will be accepted into the tournament. To check in a team, only one member (any member) has to do that on the website.
In order to find your opponent, submit game results and resolve conflicts, all teams are required to use the #msibeatit channel on Quakenet (IRC) - Quakenet Online Chat
Last but not least, all the games will be played on Luxembourg server.
