Qualification Points[edit]

The 12 teams with the most qualification points at the end of the five cups will qualify for the North American Championship Finals. While Arena Cups offer the most qualification points, approved community events are also able to award points.

The points available for the tournaments are as follows:

Place Arena Cup Community Tournament
1st 160 40
2nd 80 20
3rd 36 12
4th 20 8
5th 12 0
6th 12 0


  • Teams must have a minimum of three and a maximum of four players.
  • Bracket seeding is determined by the average current rating of the top three players on a team.
  • All tournaments will be played on a double elimination bracket.
  • All matches will be a Best of Five series.
  • Each series will begin on Nagrand Arena.
  • Team compositions cannot contain more than one healer or more than one tank.
  • If the winner of the Winners bracket loses to the winner of the Losers bracket in the Grand Final, another series will be played. The winner of the second series will be the overall winner.
  • Matches between the top eight teams will be broadcast live.

Roster Swaps[edit]

Points are awarded to teams, not individuals. Once a team has earned points, they are considered 'locked' and must follow the restrictions for roster swaps if they wish to make changes to their team. Adding or removing a fourth player is not considered a roster swap and is therefore not subject to penalties, nor is a team's first actual roster swap. Any changes made outside of this may cause players to lose points.

Once a penalty-free roster swap is made, each member of the original team is considered to be part of a team fragment. If the team makes any further roster swaps, the amount of points the team has earned so far will be halved and given to the team that retains the majority of the team fragment. If the team fragments are of equal size, the team fragment that contains the team's original captain will be awarded the qualification points. [1]
