The qualification for the Crossfire Stars tournament is here! If you want your chance at a share of the US$215,000 of prize money that’s up for grabs, read on to find out how to sign up, qualify and get one step closer towards the epic 2015 grand final!

How do I qualify for the Crossfire Stars 2015 tournament?

To qualify, all you need to do is take part in the Go4Crossfire cup series during July and August, where you and your team will earn ranking points towards the Crossfire Stars 2015 Europe National Final, where the best team will win a slot in the grand final.

Go4Crossfire cups #130, #131, #132 and #133 will be the official qualification for the Crossfire Stars 2015 Europe National Final, with the top eight teams with the most points from all four cups to be invited to participate in the tournament.

If two or more teams end up with the same amount of points, the team with higher placements will get the slot. However, if two or more team have the same amount of points and placements, a decider match will be played within two days of the last qualification cup.

Changes to Go4Crossfire cups

Please note that there are a few changes to upcoming Go4Crossfire cups to bear in mind. First of all, the seeding script will not be being using for the four qualification cups to ensure that all teams have the same chances in the seeding. Additionally, we will only be using the Crossfire Stars map pool as well as a similar ruleset. These rule changes will be released in the next few weeks along with other cup announcements.
