Teams can determine their region based on the lowest latency HoN servers for their players from each region's recommended server list. Click on the appropriate region Qualifier banner below to sign up your team for the HoN World Cup.

Registration for the Southeast Asia Qualifier will be on a first-come, first-serve basis with a limit of 128 teams (5 team members max). Southeast Asia teams should register by posting their GosuGamers account names & each player's respective Garena account.
We will be receiving and distributing Closed Beta keys from Garena to those 128 teams so they can compete in the tournament once registration closes. The SEA teams that qualify and proceed on to the group stage will be allowed access to a special International Tournament server so they can continue to compete against the other international teams in the HoN World Cup.
A select number of top teams from each Regional Qualifier will be admitted to the Group Stage of 64. The # of advancing teams from each region will depend on the proportion of registered teams that belong to that region and will be determined once registration ends.
The 64 qualified teams will battle it out in 16 groups consisting of 4 teams each with a Bo1 format, and the top 2 teams of each group will advance to the Playoffs.
The playoffs will be played in a double-elimination tournament bracket:
Playoffs Winner Bracket – Bo3 for all rounds
Playoffs Loser Bracket – Bo1 for the 1st 2 rounds, Bo3 for all rounds thereafter
Playoffs Grand Finals – Bo5, WB team starts up 1-0
