FormatThis time we will use a system similar to the one that ESL ran in StarCraft 2 qualifiers for Intel Extreme Masters. There will be a double elimination best of three bracket in which teams will be seeded based on the level they are invited to. Squads from the open qualifier and level 1 invites will butt heads in the round 1 of upper bracket. In round 2 they will be joined by the teams invited with the level 2. Then in the 3rd round level 3 contenders will join the battleground.
Three teams qualify for the LAN finals so top 2 teams from the upper bracket and top 1 from the lower bracket will earn tickets to Frankfurt. This means that we will have 4 round is the UB and 5 in the LB. The qualifiers will take place between the 10th of March and the 19th of April and all the action will be covered by joinDOTA!
