ALGS Championship Groups
Teams have been snake seeded based off their 'playoff points' into the four ALGS Championship groups. Each group will play a six game series against every other group. Total scores will be tallied, and the top 20 and bottom 20 teams will head to the upper and lower brackets.
The groups are as follows:
Group C see's an exciting match up between Alliance and Dojo. The two star-studded rosters are battling it out over Thermal Station on Worlds Edge, with the contest likely to continue all the way to Birmingham.
How many teams are from each region?
ALGS Champs does not have a set amount of team per region, unlike the two playoff events. Instead, regions were only guaranteed a minimum of two slots via the LCQ's. As a result of their dominance at the past LAN events North America is sending the most teams to the event.
- North America - 13
- EMEA - 7
- APAC North - 9
- APAC South - 8
- South America - 3
