The Closed Qualifier, the last stop before the big offline final in Osnabrück, so to say, the final before the final! 16 teams are given the opportunity to qualify for the offline event in the Esports Factory. And that’s not the end of the story. In addition to that, the teams have the chance to win 10.000 Euro. Eight teams are already qualified because of our specially created Power Ranking. Furthermore, there are eight more teams, which have consistently collected points through the Open Qualifiers. These teams complete the list of participants. All four winners from the Closed Qualifiers will then get the chance to fight for 35.000 Euro and prove themselves against the four biggest CS:GO teams in Germany.
The Closed Qualifier is divided into two phases, starting with the group phase. In there, the 16 teams will play against each other in an eliminating SWISS System over two weekends.
After that, the Online Playoffs will be played with the remaining eight teams in a double-elimination BO3 mode.
