Monthly Qualifiers

Each region will hold their own MQ. Qualified players will receive a notification to register for the respective month’s MQ.

The MQ will be played across two (2) days. Teams compete in Swiss-style the weekend after the CC. All matches are played in best-of-three (Bo3) with Bo3 games. Due to the Swiss-style bracket having no eliminations, Teams are encouraged to continue playing even if they’re out of contention for an MF slot since each win accumulates points to a WF slot!

You must have a Team of three (3) or four (4) players to be allowed to compete in the MQ. The Top eight (8) Teams from each region’s MQ will advance to the MF!

Every region will begin their MQ one week after the end of the previous CC.


Monthly Finals

Each region will hold their own MFs. Teams will compete in the Single Elimination Bracket. Quarter Finals will be played in a best-of-three (Bo3) set with a Bo3 games format. Semifinals and Grand Finals will be played in a best-of-five (Bo5) set with a Bo3 games format. Teams will have a minimum of six (6) games and maximum potential of up to fifteen (15) games.

The Top eight (8) placing Teams from each region’s MQs will qualify to participate in their respective region’s MFs.

MFs are played in the month following each season. Specific dates for MFs will be different for each region and time zone will be available in the ruleset.


World Finals

WF consists of sixteen (16) Teams from seven (7) regions. It is slated to take place in-person in November. Tournament schedule to be announced at a later time.

Teams who have earned the most points throughout the Tournament year with respect to their region will qualify per their region’s allocated spots. Spot allocations will vary based on each region’s player density.


Regions & Allocated Slots

Monthly Qualifiers (MQ) and Monthly Finals (MF) will be split into seven (7) regions. This year, we’ve added two (2) new regions: EECA and SESA & ANZ — Welcome! Players will compete exclusively within their corresponding regions during the MQs and MFs. All players must be a resident of the region in which they are participating for at least three (3) months prior to the start of the Tournament.

FAQ

How old do you need to be to compete in BSC 2021?

  • All players must be sixteen (16) years of age or older to participate in the MQs and MFs.

Can I still find a Team if I enter solo?

  • YES! If you enter solo, we’ve got your back! Once you complete the Championship Challenge, we will host a LFT channel where you can find your Team. Stay tuned for further details.

If I enter the Championship Challenge with a premade Team, do I have to stick to that Team further down the Tournament?

  • No. You are not required to have the same teammates going into the MQ. For Monthly Qualifiers, Monthly Finals, and World Finals, teams are persistent and points earned in MQs, MFs, and WFs follow the Team.

What happens if there’s a technical failure during the game?

  • Players are responsible for their own connection to the game and should resolve any problems they might encounter before a match starts. Connection or hardware problems that cause an inability to compete could lead to an automatic forfeiture.

What are the rules regarding rosters?

  • Teams are expected to form and maintain their own rosters. Teams may have up to four (4) players on their roster at any given time, and they can remove players at their leisure so long as they maintain at least two (2) players at all times, even in-between seasons.
