    Post The Path to WC2020

    2020 has just begun, but it's time to start planning for the World Championships!

    This year, there will be 16 slots available for the World Championship Finals:


    • 1 returning champion from 2019 - A1 Beantalk
    • 5 from big tournaments including Crown and Slugfest held throughout the year, where only the winner will receive a wc ticket. Each tournament also has the prize of $200 to the winner, $100 second place, $50 third place.
    • 4 from Pro Tour: Earn points from using the new automated tournaments system throughout the year. Pro Tour Finals in January 2021 where the top 32 in points will battle in Swiss format for 4 wc tickets. $200 to the winner, $100 second place, $50 third place
    • 4 from rated scoreboard: top 100 every month from January 2020 until December 2020 get their score/pts recorded and summed each month. Rated Finals in January 2021 will take the top 32 in overall points to battle in Swiss format for 4 wc tickets. $200 to the winner, $100 second place, $50 third place
    • 2 wildcard tournaments in December with entry fees. Each tournament also has the prize of $200 to the winner, $100 second place, $50 third place


    World Championships (February 2021)
    Day 1 = 16 players will battle first in a group stage with 4 groups, and the top 2 of each group will advance.
    Day 2 = 8 player single elimination

    Exact prizes for WC are pending budget approval, but are expected to be better than ever!
    Tournament dates will be posted once planning has completed.

    Is this based on Rating or Score?

    Hope that there will be regionals. Time of tournaments are usually bad for Asian players.

    The wildcards are pretty much what regionals are anyway. One of them will be at a suitable time for Asia

    Yep. That's the reason why I could participate WC2019 but not WC2018. Really appreciate the change.
    BTW, we were talking about regionals.
