    On the first day, players will compete in a Swiss system until 16 best players are determined.
    • Each participant must build at least 2 decks from at least 2 different factions.
    • All matches are best of three.
    • No two decks can be of the same faction.
    • Winning decks can’t be used to play another match, while losing ones may be used again or swapped out for another.
    • Players will be eliminated from the tournament after 3 losses.

    On the second day, 16 top players will compete in a double-elimination format.
    • All matches are best of five.
    • Each participant must build 4 decks from 4 different factions.

  • After sharing the Challenger Qualifiers rules we talked with you and listened to your opinions, and we made a decision.

    The qualifiers will take place a week later than anticipated date, on November 11th-12th 2017, starting at 12pm CET. They will be carried out via StriveWire.

    On the first day players will still compete in a Swiss system until 16 best are determined, but all matches will be best of three.
