The open qualifiers are already underway in Europe and North America, top eight teams from said regions will join up with eight invited teams to fight for a spot in Kiev, Ukraine on April 4th-9th.
The qualifiers are already stacked without the open qualifier teams as likes of G2, fnatic, EnVyUs, OpTic, Cloud9 and Immortals will be ready to battle it out for a spot at Kiev. In addition, teams such as Epsilon, LDLC, BIG, Heroic and Space Soldiers are playing in the open qualifiers.
