IWCQ 2016 - Qualifiers

The top four teams fly to Curitiba, where they’ll be playing the BO5 of their lives: each winner earns a spot at Worlds 2016.

Qualifier 1 – Sunday, September 4rd
7:00 AM – Best of 5*

Qualifier 2 – Monday, September 5th
5:00 AM – Best of 5*

By default, the seeding will follow standard rules of 1st vs. 4th(Q1) and 2nd vs. 3rd (Q2). If the Brazilian team INTZ, however, as the host region, manages to qualify in the top four positions, their BO5 will take place on Sunday -- which can affect the schedule, but never the seedings.
