In similar fashion to the previous phase, and keeping true with the program's strong emphasis on promoting local talent across the region, top teams from the league will have the opportunity to directly qualify for global events in the 2019 PUBG Esports Season, whilst also competing locally for a prize pool of $15,000AUD.
Phase 2 - Open Qualifiers
Load up into the plane, pick your place to drop and register your team to the open qualifier! Taking place over four days, the open qualifiers are open to anyone and everyone in Oceania as teams partake in a progressive elimination tournament.
Each individual matchday will feature four games played, with the top teams from each group advancing to the next matchday. The exact breakdown of each day will be determined based on the total amount of registrations made for the qualifier. By the final day of action, only one lobby of sixteen teams will be left standing, with only the top six positions being invited into the league for Phase 2, joining the already qualified ten teams joining us from Phase 1.
PLEASE NOTE: All teams that were relegated from the previous phase will be required to compete from scratch through the open qualifier portion of the tournament.
