Qualifier format and Gamescom selection process
The qualifiers will be best of 1 using the built in FaceIt map bann system. Each team banns one map until only one map remains to be played. nookyyy will select eight players from the winners of three online qualifiers that will be joining him at Offline Auditions for the final selection process. The players selected will be mixed and do not have to be from the same lineup that they played in.
Once a team wins the qualifier they will be contacted by a tournament admin to provide their contact information. This is so the chosen players can be contacted once all qualifiers are completed.
All participating players are required to join the official qualifier Discord channel: https://discord.gg/nDRxgyn
Important information to participate
All players needs to be prepared to go to the offline auditions starting from the August 22 in Köln which will take place over three days until August 25. Be prepared for days filled with Counter Strike, a ton of matches and challenges that will help nookyyy to decide who will be part of his team. All costs are covered so the only thing you need to focus on is to come prepared and the dedication needed to be a part of team Germany.
