New dates for B Site qualifiers announced

B Site and FACEIT have announced that they have rescheduled some of the open qualifiers to avoid a clash with the ESL One Rio Major qualifiers.

The first open qualifier will now start one day later in all three regions and the last one will end one day earlier to avoid clashing with two of the ESL One Rio qualifiers that will be held in Europe and North America.

The second and third B Site open qualifiers, scheduled for February 8 and 9 respectively, will not be changed. This means that they will still clash with the third Major qualifier in Europe and North America, but B Site told HLTV.org that it will welcome all teams who are eliminated on the first day of the ESL tournament.

Even though there was no conflict between the South American qualifiers of the two tournament organisers, B Site still moved the dates in the region to make sure that all of its qualifiers are aligned.

The European qualifiers will culminate with a 32-team closed stage, featuring 16 teams coming out of the open brackets and 16 invitees. In both Americas regions, the closed qualifier will have 16 places, distributed equally between invites and open qualifier berths.

The two best teams from each of the three regions will travel to Los Angeles, where the Global LAN Qualifiers will be held at FACEIT's studios. This stage will determine the last teams entering the B Site league, where they will join the franchise partners, who have paid $2 million each to be part of the project.

The qualifying process for B Site will have $100,000 on offer on top of spots in the league. More details about how this prize pool will be distributed and the exact number of teams coming through the LAN qualifier are expected to be released shortly.

I guess they deemed the messages have no value and were just tries to get 1st,, it is weird though my message reads "very nice" and above that was message that read "nice", not sure if it makes much sense only one of those was deleted :D.

2020-02-04 21:14
The same as the second day of the 3rd qualifier for EU and NA, so teams that got eliminated on the first day can still play them.

The only overlapping one is the third qualifier for EU. ESL fucked them in the first place by setting the dates on the same days as the b site quals even though they were announced first. I think this is a pretty good compromise without having to reschedule the entire event

Not saying it's not. Only tier 2/3 teams will be playing in b site this year, that you can be assured of. With that said, ESL's production has not been the best thus far. So if B site can nail all the production stuff and the revenue model works as planned it could just be the smarter option for both players and orgs. We will have to see how it plays out

good call. I think most teams prioritize the major qualifier, it would be embarrassing if no one even wants to qualify for free

Most notably, B Site will fine participating teams $100,000 per month they place outside of the world's top 20 teams.

how should a 2 mio buy in + fines when you fall out of top 20 be attractive for teams, even if there is high price money? i don't get it
2020-02-05 07:42
Do teams even know what they are qualifying to? This project is joke so far, seriously.
