ARENA POOL FOR 2023 SEASON 4:
Last season had Insomnia in the pool, so Molten Falls is the new addition this season.
*Just a heads up while these our Global qualifiers Players from countries embargoed by the United States of America Treasury Department can not participate. An unfortunate reality as a result of current events. Players from Russia, Belarus, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Sudan, Cuba, and Venezuela are not permitted to enter because of sanction bans. To be clear this has always been a stipulation for Eligibility for all seasons of the Quake Pro League. It just gained attention last year with current events starting shortly after Season 3 started.
Microsoft made a statement last March explaining why they follow these sort of requests from their government. In this statement Microsoft has made it clear they will be suspending all sales in Russia and now Belarus as well. Since Bethesda Softworks is a subsidiary of Microsoft this has trickled down to Quake Champions. The gist of the situation is Bethesda Softworks cannot in good faith allow people to participate in the Quake Pro League or Challengers if they can not guarantee their payment to them legally.
Quake World Championships Format:
The Quake Pro League will congregate in a three day Quake World Championship. First day will be made up of 4 groups of 4 players. These groups will be comprised of our 8 Qualifiers and Bottom 8 seeded Quake Pro League players. Top 2 players from each group will qualify to day two where the top 8 seeded Quake Pro league players and the 8 qualified players from Day 1 will make up a sixteen person double elimination bracket. Quake Pro League seeds will be generated based on regular season performance. This bracket will integrate both regions based on their respective seeds as displayed below:
HAPPY FRAGGING FOLKS, AND GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE CONTESTANTS PARTICIPATING!
