The Regional Challenger Cup Qualifier is a single-day event. All teams registered in the Challenger Cup will play a pre-determined number of maps against other teams, in their corresponding group, based on the number of registrants. Details below. The Challenger Cup follows the standards of a Swiss-system tournament. Standings will seed the first set of matches. Each match will consist of 1 map. Starting with the Away Team. Teams will alternate bans until 2 maps remain. Then the Home team will select Map or Side. All teams will be ranked by the number of wins (& ties), then by Buchholz, then by +/- points, and finally by points total. If a tie happens, the teams will play a single-elimination map. The best 2 teams of each qualifier region will proceed to Stage 2.
