The Open Division gives amateur teams a chance to break into professional eSports. With a $14,000 prize pool, teams are competing for $1,000 per cup. More importantly, winning teams will get a chance to challenge the professional HGC-NA teams and take one of their spots in the Premier League.
From here, the top teams will advance to the playoffs and fight for a spot in The Crucible. It is here where the best team will emerge victory and earn their chance at becoming the real deal-- an official HGC team.
Five players must band together and join a single team to play in the Open Division. No team members may be associated with more than one team in the North American Open Division.
Teams must select one Team Captain from within their roster of five players. The role of the Team Manager is to be the primary point of contact for the team.
