The top three players will earn a spot in the main tournament. Note that this qualifier is played in two parts on consecutive days September 2-3.
In order to participate, you need to add your battletag (e.g. Player#123) from Dashboard --> Add game.

- Follow the schedule below
Battle.net Ladder Season 3 map pool is used:
- 2000 Atmospheres LE
- Beckett Industries LE
- Blackburn LE
- Jagannatha LE
- Lightshade LE
- Oxide LE
- Romanticide LE
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.
In short the map vetoes and picks are ABBA BAC. Players remove maps in ABBA order. Then the players take turns (BA) picking the map order from the maps that are left, starting from the first map that will be played. Player B picks the 1st map.
All matches are played on the central American server unless players mutually agree otherwise. Read more from the rules.
The mutually fairest server, on which the ping of both players is closest to each other, should be used when selecting which American server to use. If fairest cannot be determined, America Central server is the default. Use this table to find the best server.
The tournament starts as a single elimination bracket and changes into a double elimination bracket from round-of-16 onwards if there are 64 or more checked-in players, and from round-of-32 otherwise. This means that if you lose on Ro16 (or Ro32 if less than 64 total players) you may continue in the lower bracket. All matches are best-of-3.
The tournament will cease when top three players are decided. Reaching the finals (round-of-2) in the upper bracket or lower bracket is enough for qualification. The upper or lower bracket finals are not played.
