Qualcomm Snapdragon Conquest Tournament: Format
A three-month-long tournament, the ‘in-game qualifiers’ will commence once the two-week registration period comes to an end. The in-game qualifiers will take place over a period of 6 days, where squads will be required to play 15 classic matches in the community favourite Bermuda and Kalahari maps. Out of the 15 matches, the top 10 performances will be considered. In a situation where there is a tie, total squad kills, survival time and accuracy, among many other parameters will be considered. A total of 648 teams will progress to the playoffs.
During the ‘Playoffs’, the 648 teams will be divided into 54 groups. To up the ante and challenge the players, the squads will be subjected to direct single-match eliminations through 3 rounds. Only the top 4 from each group comprising 216 teams will progress to round 2 and be further divided into 18 groups, out of which again, the top 4 from each group made up of 72 top teams will qualify for round 3.
The final playoff round will consist of a total of 18 matches and the teams will be divided into 6 groups. The Top 3 teams from each group will then qualify for the next phase.
The top 18 teams from the playoffs along with 6 invited teams will be allowed to participate in the ‘League Stages’. A grueling four weeks long match schedule will test the perseverance of the teams in a round robin format, where each competitor will in turn face every other competing team.
