Dates revealed, signups start for FACEIT Major Open Qualifiers
The full schedule of Open Qualifiers for the FACEIT Major 2018 has been announced, with the CIS region kicking off first on May 14th.
Shortly after revealing details about the qualifying process, FACEIT has put out the full schedule regarding Open Qualifiers for the Major, with the 19 single-elimination cups now open for sign-ups as well.
The first Open Qualifier to take place is the one for the CIS Region, with the four qualifiers set to be played out by the end of May. Asia and South America will follow suit, with all of their Open Qualifiers done before the start of June as well. Considering those regions historically had trouble securing visas in time, FACEIT's schedule should help all of the qualified teams attend the tournament in the end.
In June, the two main Counter-Strike regions, Europe and North America, will have their own Open Qualifiers played out over the first two weeks.
