WCG releases USA qualifiers info
The World Cyber Games organisation has announced the dates of the American qualifiers for this year's world finals.
The American qualifying process will kick off in just two weeks' time with the first qualifier, followed by two more, one in May and the other in June, each of which will be played online and can feature up to 128 teams.
There will also be a Last Chance online qualifier in late July, which will feature the top 32 teams from each of the previous qualifiers.
The American WCG national finals will then bring about the four winners from these qualifiers, with the dates and location of the event set to be announced at a later time.
