Whether you’re a viewer or competitor, now is the perfect time to familiarize yourself with the 2020 PGS structure for the Americas. Each sub-region will have its own open qualifiers that culminate into one offline qualifier for each PGS event.

PGS Berlin: Americas Qualifier

Roster Rules

All players must be 18+ years old in order to participate in a match.

Rosters must be made up of a minimum of two players from the region the team will be participating in.

We would like to reward the players who participated at the highest level in their respective regional competitions by giving them the opportunity to receive preferential seeding for the PGS Berlin: Americas Qualifier.

Teams who previously competed in Phase 3 of NPL, NPLC, LPPS or ESL AU & NZ Championship in 2019 can apply to receive preferential seeding as long as the following roster requirements are met.

NPL + NPLC Rosters

To receive preferential seeding, NPL/NPLC teams must field a minimum of two players from the official roster that concluded Phase 3 (including Relegation). If there is a 2-2 split between players, the NPL Phase 3 team owner may designate the two players that will receive the preferential seeding.

LPPS + ESL AU & NZ Championship Rosters 

To receive preferential seeding, LPPS/ESLAUNZ teams must field a minimum of two players from the official roster that concluded Phase 3. If there is a 2-2 split between players, the roster that includes the designated team captain will receive preferential seeding.

Online Qualifiers

The PGS Americas Open Qualifiers are built to support 256 teams for each region (NA, LATAM, and OCE), but it will scale up or down depending on participation. Each lobby will be given a minimum of 6 matches (12 matches for later rounds) before determining which teams will advance or be eliminated.
