MLG have revealed the qualifying process for the Americas Minor, which will hand out another $50,000 to up and coming teams and a spot at MLG Columbus 2016 Major LAN qualifier.
There will be four Minor Championships taking place, one for each of the following regions: Europe, CIS, Asia and the Americas. As the organizer in charge of the latest mentioned, MLG have released additional information on their process.
Another $50,000 Minor will be taking place in the MLG Arena in Columbus, Ohio, on January 15-17, with a single spot in the LAN qualifier for the major up for grabs alongside the prizemoney.
Two teams will receive direct invites, while four will come from North America's online qualifier, and the last two from South America's online qualifier. Once again, none of the players that were Challengers or Legends at the last major can take part in this Minor or the qualifiers.
