Qualifier Weekend Invitation
Players who finish in the top 250 of Mythic-ranked competitors will qualify to participate in the Qualifier Weekend. Matches that are finished prior to 12:00 p.m. PT (UTC-08:00) on the final day of the current season will count toward final season ranking for that month, which determines invitations to the next month's Qualifier Weekend.
Players can earn the Qualifier Token for entry to a Qualifier Weekend by reaching maximum wins in a single course of a Play-In event that feeds that Qualifier Weekend.
There are typically two Qualifier Play-Ins each month:
- A Best-of-One event is held on Saturday, seven days before Qualifier Weekend.
- A Best-of-Three event is held on Friday, the day before Qualifier Weekend.
Learn more on the Qualifier Play-In Information page.
Information on what the Qualifier Weekend feeds, its format, and other details are available on the Qualifier Weekend Information page.
