Qualification Points[edit]

AWC Points will be used to determine which four teams will attend the two Seasonal Championships between Europe and North America. The top team from these events will automatically qualify for the Arena World Championship at BlizzCon. The three teams with the most qualification points at the end of the nine cups will also qualify for the AWC. 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 180 60
2nd 120 40
3rd 80 20
4th 60 12
5th 40 8
6th 40 8
7th 20 0
8th 20 0
9th 12 0
10th 12 0
11th 12 0
12th 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, except the Grand Final, which will be a Best of Seven.
  • Each series will begin on Nagrand Arena.
  • Team compositions cannot contain more than one healer or more than one tank.
  • 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]
