Earlier this week we announced that our events divisions, Tier 1 Events, would be hosting a $1520 league for Ironsight. The details have since been released, but we feel as though there is still some confusion around the two qualifier tournaments and how they work. to help clarify things, let's start with the basics.
- Qualifier #1 is scheduled to start on June 16th @ 6:00pm EST.
- Registration for Qualifier #1 must be done before the start time.
- There will be a "Check-In" period starting on June 16th @ 5:00pm EST where all registered teams will need to either check their team in either on the website or by contacting an Admin/Moderator in the official Ironsight T1E Discord (https://discord.gg/WRcePsH)
- Qualifier #2 is scheduled to start on June 23rd @ 6:00pm EST.
- Registration for Qualifier #2 must be done before the start time.
- There will be a "Check-In" period starting on June 23rd @ 5:00pm EST where all registered teams will need to either check their team in either on the website or by contacting an Admin/Moderator in the official Ironsight T1E Discord (https://discord.gg/WRcePsH)
How To Register
First, you're going to want to go to this page on Toornament: https://www.toornament.com/tournaments/1509641772758450176/information
This is the official official page that Qualifier #1 will be ran on and Toornament is the platform on which both Qualifiers and the Major League will be hosted.
Next, your going to want to go to the "Register to the tournament" button in the top right
From here, you will need to enter in all required information about your team and it's players. Please make sure that all player usernames or in-game ID's are exactly correct. You will have a chance to add or remove people from your roster before the qualifier starts by contacting an Admin or Moderator in our Discord channel.
Now that you are registered, it's important to keep in mind that these qualifiers are not free to enter as all entry fee's go into the prize pool for the league. To make your team eligible, you'll need to pay $10 for your team's spot within the qualifier.
You can do this by going to https://www.paypal.me/ChandlerMcFall and sending $10.
Don't worry, this is my personal PayPal but I am the owner of Tier 1 Events and will be making sure all monetary transactions are handled appropriately.
Once you registered you team and payed the $10 entry fee, you're all set! A staff member will approve your team's entry ASAP and you'll be marked eligible to get in on the action at 6:00pm EST!
How Do I Qualify For The League?
The teams that finish within the Top 8 of either Qualifier will qualify for the Ironsight Major League for a total of 16 teams divided between 2 Pools.
It's important to note that the 8 teams that qualify in Qualifier #1, are not allowed to participate in Qualifier #2 as they have already qualified for the league. However, if a team plays in Qualifier #1 but does NOT make the Top 8, they can register for Qualifier #2 and try again.
How Are Qualified Teams Seeded For The League?
Seeding for the league will be determined by what place you finish within the qualifier.
Teams that finish 1st-8th within Qualifier #1 will be Seeds 1-8 when placed into Pools. Teams that finish 1st-8th within Qualifier #2 will be Seeds 9-16 when placed into pools since they were not able to qualify the first time.
All Odd Number Seeds will be placed into Pool A while All Even Number Seeds will be placed into Pool B. This ensures a mixture of teams from both qualifiers and a variety in skill level.
For example, say "Team Reapers" finishes 4th place in Qualifier #1. Now "Team Reapers", because they finished in 4th place, has finished the qualifier within the Top 8 and have officially qualified for the league. Because they finished in 4th place in Qualifier #1, they will be "Seed 4" when they are placed into their Pool for the league.
"Team Patriots" didn't finish within the Top 8 in Qualifier #1. So now they have to register for Qualifier #2 and try again. This time "Team Patriots" finish 7th in Qualifier #2 and because they made it in the Top 8, they have now qualified for the Ironsight Major League. Because they came in 7th place in Qualifier #2, they will be "Seed 15" when they are placed into their Pool for the league.
