A Copious Quantity of Qualifiers: Survival Guide June 18-24

posted by Abelle,
Even if you could function on zero sleep, it's impossible to keep up with every single regional qualifier match this week, but that doesn't mean you can't try. We're here to help! Here's a breakdown of where, when and how you can watch as many TI regionals as you can manage. The six regional qualifiers for The International 2018 will take place over eight days split up into three regional qualifiers taking four days each. That means only three regions will happen simultaneously, but there's still going to be plenty of overlap.

The first two days of each qualifier are round robins between all eight teams - or six, in SA's case. On the final two days, the top four teams from the round robin will play a double elimination bracket. The format of the final bracket will adjust slightly to allow for the number of teams to qualify for TI from each region.

In addition to choosing which region you want to watch, you'll also have a few choices in terms of streams and casters. There's always Beyond the Summit's on and off-site hub coverage, but some official coverage will also be broadcast on caster's personal channels.

We'll list person's Twitch channel under the regions below, but you'll also want to keep an eye on Beyond the Summit's main stream and secondary stream for around-the-clock coverage.

In general, round robin matches will be streamed on a mix of BTS and personal channels, but caster pairs with more familiar faces are planned on Beyond the Summit for the playoff rounds.
