Many players are streaming their own games, which you can check out on Twitch’s QC Directory https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Quake%20Champions. During the tourney, watch for the word “challengers” in their stream title.
Besides the player streams you can catch the action on community casted streams. These streams will follow the bracket, cast the games and show off the upcoming challengers that strive to be included in the professional action of the QPL.
