EL Main Qualifier match-ups revealed
ELEAGUE have revealed the first round's match-ups of their Major's Main Qualifier, which will utilize the Swiss format.
ELEAGUE Major's Main Qualifier will take place from December 15-18 at ELEAGUE' studios in Atlanta, Georgia, where the 16 teams will fight for eight spots at the Major.
As was previously announced, the qualifier will utilize the Swiss format, which was used at ESL One New York and at the Main Qualifier prior to ESL One Cologne.
Cloud9 will once again meet FaZe early on
To briefly explain the Swiss format again: each round will see the match-ups being randomly chosen between teams with the same win-loss record, as long as the two teams haven't played each other before.
When a team reaches three losses they exit the competition, while three wins award them a spot at the Major.
The first round's match-ups have been revealed by ELEAGUE earlier today:
|CLG||vs. Vega Squadron|
The aforementioned list is ordered by schedule; the entire first round will be played on the first day, December 15, starting at 16:00.
