Frequently Asked Questions

How does qualifying work? Who will be invited to the tournament?

Players can play the qualifying songs on any Single difficulty. EX score across all 6 qualifying songs will be combined, with the top 48 earning a spot in the tournament. The top player from each of the following regions will be automatically invited regardless of overall placement:

In the event a qualifying player is unable to attend, their slot will be offered to the next best player.

Additionally, each region listed above will receive 1 additional guaranteed slot for every 10 players from that region in the top 200. Players from any country not covered by the above groups (Africa, Europe) will be considered to be a single additional region, and can gain a guaranteed slot this way.

Lastly, the top player from the state of Colorado will receive a slot if there would otherwise be no player from the state.
