Valiance Summer Season is coming!

June 8, 2018 15:26

Critical Ops Spring Invitational showed us how quickly things at the top can change.

Gankstars survived the scare in the 'AMERICAS' part of the tournament and became champions yet again, but Nova eSports and Learn From Past didn’t manage to defend their title and lost in the Quarterfinals of 'EURASIA'.

We saw some new teams rise and some top teams struggle.

But that’s history already. Now it's time to announce a new tournament - Valiance Critical Ops Summer Season!

This time, as mentioned in the previous articles, we're going to divide the tournament into 3 regions:

•    Europe

•    Asia

•    North America

The main part  of the tournament will last from 28th of July until 2nd of September.

6 will participate in the regional Group Stages and four of them will be directly invited.

The first two teams are the Winter Season finalists from each of the regions.

Two more teams will be invited directly by Critical Force and Valiance.

The last 2 spots are open for grabs and any team can get in by qualifying via the Open Qualifiers (July 1st – July 20th).

The total prize pool is set at 4500$, which is going to be equally divided between the regions.

Here is a full list of rewards for teams that make to the Group Stages:

  • 1st place regional- $1000 per team + 100 premium cases per player (only for players participating in min 50% of the matches in group phase & playoffs)

  • 2nd place regional - $500 per team + 75 premium cases per player (only for players participating in min 50% of the matches in group phase & playoffs)

  • 3rd place regional - 60 premium cases per player (only for players participating in min 50% of the matches in group phase & playoffs)

  • 4th place regional - 50 premium cases per player (only for players participating in min 50% of the matches in group phase & playoffs)

  • 5th place regional - 25 premium cases per player (only for players participating in min 50% of the matches in group phase & playoffs)

  • 6th place regional -10 premium cases per player (only for players participating in min 50% of the matches in group phase & playoffs

The Group Stages will follow a round robin format.

The semifinals of the regional playoffs will feature a best-of-three match, while the Grand Finals will be a best-of-five clash.

Each of the teams is allowed to have up to 7 players in the roster (but must have at least 5 to apply).

It’s important to remember that once the roster is submitted, it is permanent for that stage, but it can be edited later on during the different stages of the competition.

The signups for the Open Qualifiers are open until 25th of June, so make sure to keep that date in mind and sign up on time.

Open Qualifiers will still be played in a best-of-one format, so come prepared as there won’t be any room for mistakes.

The full list of participating teams will be announced in the near future.

Do you think you have what it takes to fight and beat some of the best teams in the Critical Ops?

Sign up and prove it!

We’re are waiting. :)
