MSI Beat it! qualifier in Oceania
The Oceania qualifier for MSI Beat it! 2013 World Finals have been announced with prizing and the full schedule with matches scheduled for September 21-22nd.
As with the Middle Eastern qualifier, the one for Oceania is also limited to 64 slots, but it will feature a system more along the lines of the US Open qualifier, as it will start off with group stages.
Unlike in the US qualifier though, the Oceania qualifier will feature six groups, each of which will have four teams and see the top two teams in each make it through to the second stage.
|Saturday, September 21st|
|02:00 -15:00||Groups A, B & C||BO1|
|07:00 -20:00||Group D, E & F||BO1|
|Sunday, September 22nd|
|02:00 -07:00||Group stage two||BO1|
A second group stage will then start on the following day with two groups of six teams, and the top two advancing for the single elimination best-of-three playoffs, the deciding stage of the event.
The playoffs will then award the winners with $2,000 in cash, travel support and a spot at the MSI Beat it! 2013 World Finals in Shanghai, China, where they will represent Oceania.
