Tournament Format

Community Qualifiers - Swiss Rounds

  • Limited to 256 players who can enter qualifier tournament
  • While all Gwent teams can bring five (5) people from their teams straight  to the main tournament., additional team members can participate in the community qualifier for their spot in the main tournament.
  • The amount of players who can advance to the main tournament will depend solely if all of the Gwent teams invited can fill a five (5) player invite roster. For example, if 10 Gwent teams all had 5 players join the main event and 3 independent notables joined the main event then there would be 53 out of 64 spots filled. This would leave 11 spots  that community qualifier players can compete for. Qualifying spots will vary depending on the outcome
