With the ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier set to start tomorrow, we bring you a detailed viewer's guide to lead you through the action that will take place in Atlanta this week.
The ELEAGUE Major Main Qualifier will take place at the ELEAGUE Studios from December 15-18, using the Swiss System to decide which eight teams will make it through to the ELEAGUE Major in January.

Sixteen attending teams have been split up into four seeding pools, depending on their placings at the Cologne Major or at their regional Minors. Teams from the same pool will not be drawn to play each other, except the matchup is unavoidable.
The seeding pools are as follows:
|Seeding pool 1||Seeding pool 2||Seeding pool 3||Seeding pool 4|
The first day of competition will feature the following matchups:
|19:45||CLG||vs. Vega Squadron||BO1|
The schedules and exact matchups for the following days will be revealed as the tournament moves on.
All matches will be played as best-of-ones, featuring the veto system we've seen at previous ELEAGUE events. The system has one team banning three maps, the other team banning two and the map to be played getting decided by a random generator.
