This qualifier is the only barrier to entry for enrolling in 7 vs 7, 42-point league play that culminates into the professional Wargaming League North America (WGLNA). See this graphic illustrating progression through the North American server's league system.

 

Tier Limits

  • Light: 8

Question here:

 

we have two teams signed up for the open league qualifiers. However, when you look at the list of teams signed up our teams are not showing. The thing is, people can join. So, what's going on.

This is a newb question.  

 

You say 16 teams go into the playoffs for contention for a Bronze League birth.  How many teams from that playoff win entry into Bronze league? Is it only the first place team?

Nope. Right now we have planned for 8 teams to be moved to the Bronze League.

also, does the "planned" mean that its subject to change? change due to teams dropping out i guess? Or could the size of the league change?

The season should be starting Monday, June 9th, right after the qualifiers are finished.

 

Planned means planned. There is always the possibility that things are subject to change ;)

So what happens in the tournament?  No gold pay out for top 50%, nothing? 

Guest_stormcrowe_* #11 Posted May 27 2014 - 20:14

tpmg60616 theres no payout for this. Its a chance to get into open league where they will pay out.

 

Dance i know its group stages are each nites group going to be shuffled ? wonder how it will play out scheduling wise.I noticed with my team for example we seemed to be constantly getting place with the top 20 teams when we did the summer preseason and in some cases faces the same team twice. Wondering if this will be ranked each nite based on how teams did the previous nites. or is it jut pure randomness?

There is no gold payout. Teams that qualify earn a berth in either the Open League or the Bronze league for the Summer '14 season. 

 

They can then compete for the gold prize in that league.

Teams will not be ranked each night, it's purely random which group your team is placed in.

  • Teams ranked 1 - 16 are in contention for a Bronze League berth and will proceed to the Playoff round. Teams are seeded based on Group Stage rank.

Does this mean if you lose in the bronze league berth you are out and dont even get a chance at open league either?

No. If you win, you move on to the Bronze league. If you lose, you compete in the Open league.

So, we have submitted our team, say we wanted to make a change really quickly to our team for the quals. I have a couple questions.

 

1. Are we able to make a change to our team even though it is currently pending approval?

 

2. Who would we need to get into contact with to make the change?

 

Also, I am not the captain, but that person is not online currently.
