This is the first online qualifier for the ASUS ROG StarCraft II Summer 2019 tournament held in Helsinki, Finland on August 1-3. This qualifier is based on the European Battle.net server. The top eight players will earn a spot in the main tournament.
In order to participate, you need to add your battletag (e.g. Player#123) from Dashboard --> Add game. Failure to do so might result in removal before brackets are generated.
If you manage to grap a spot in the main tournament from this qualifier, you are expected to travel to Helsinki, Finland to compete on August 1-3. You will have to cover the travel and accommodation expenses yourself. If you're unable to travel or unable to cover the expenses, DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THIS QUALIFIER.
Before signing up for the qualifiers, we recommend you apply for an invite.

Before each match both players veto out two maps out of the map pool one by one in turns, leaving three maps to be played.
The player on the left side on the match page (top on bracket view) decides who starts the vetoes.
Players remove maps in ABBA order. Then the players take turns (AB) picking the map order from the maps that are left, starting from the first map that will be played. Player A picks the 1st map.
All matches are played on the European server unless players mutually agree otherwise. Read more from the rules.
The tournament starts as a single elimination bracket and changes into a double elimination bracket from round-of-16 onwards. However, if there are 32 players or fewer total checked in, the whole tournament will be played in double elimination format. All matches are best-of-3.
The tournament will cease when top eight players are decided. Reaching the semifinals (round-of-4) in the upper or lower bracket is enough for qualification. The ro4 is not played.
The first 256 players to check-in will enter the tournament. The check-in button will appear on the right on this page when check-in starts.
Only the winner of the match reports the score. To report, click on your match from the bracket and add match rounds. In trouble, see this guide.
