Two teams advance from each bracket, which means a total of four teams advancing to the league from this qualifier
Brackets will be randomly seeded
All matches will follow a best-of-five format. In the event of a draw, teams will replay the same map with the same spawn positions. Teams may choose different tanks, and should follow the tank selection format outlined below.
Tier points: 42 tier points (-1 for each player less than 7)
Teams may choose to play without a complete seven players. Teams cannot play with less than five players.
No reschedules, matches must be played at designated times. Those times will be explicitly stated at www.wglna.com
The team located at the top of each matchup on the official bracket page vetoes the first map from the map pool. The other team vetoes the next map. This continues until one map is left. The team that does the final veto also chooses the spawn position, and picks the first two tanks. From this point on, the team that lost the last game will pick both the next map and spawn position.
The following maps may be used:
The team that chooses the map (or that makes the last veto) picks the first two tanks. The other team then picks two tanks. This process continues until everyone has picked their tanks. At this point, tank selection may not be changed. Once everyone has chosen their tanks, gameplay may commence.
Every member of a team must record replays and take screenshots of battle results and rule violations.
Teams found to be using players that are not part of their rosters may be disqualified at the discretion of the league admins.
In the event of a dispute, players should contact an available WGLNA_Admin in the WGLNAQual chat channel in the World of Tanks client.
