EMS X CSS: Qualification Round 2
Today we want to inform you about the second Qualification Round and about the upcoming matches. The ESL Major Series has three Qualification Rounds before the Groupstage. Qualifying Round 1 is almost finish, we can now show you the results and we will tell you the details for Qualifying Round 2.
Teams in Qualification Round 1 play a match against 1 other team in their round. The winners go through to Qualification Round 2 to play against a team from that round. The winners go through to Qualification Round 3 to play against a team from that round. Finally the winners are qualified for the ESL Major Series Groupstage.
A Qualification match is best of 3 map, first to 16 rounds. In the event of a tie, overtime will be MR5 with 10k startmoney for the first round of each half. The use of ESL Wire is compulsory!
To decide which maps are played in a ESL Major Series BO3 match, a veto system is used. Both teams alternatively remove or choose one map from the pool:
- the left team begins to eliminate the first map
- the right team eliminates second map
- the right team picks his map
- the left team picks his map
- the match starts with the last one
- the second map will be the one chosen by the looser
- the last one will be played then if necessary.
Reminder: both team have to upload, within 24 hours the end of the match, all the requested match media file, such as round and rcon status screen, eventually demo and wire error problem.
