Format of the Championship
Each Regional Qualifier tournament uses the single elimination bracket format, meaning that teams who win their matches advance and those who lose a match are eliminated. The two teams who reach the finals of each tournament will advance to the Stage 4 Regional Playoffs. The two teams in the finals will play the final match to determine the overall winner of each respective tournament and to determine seeding for the Regional Playoffs.
Each round in a Regional Qualifier will be a best-of-5 match, which means the team to win three games will win the match. Each match will consist of Hardpoint, Search & Destroy and Domination game modes played on various maps. The maps played for each respective round of the tournament are predetermined.
Progression in COD Mobile World Championship 2020
Once the registration period has ended, players will be able to see the bracket for the current Regional Qualifier on GameBattles and whom they will be playing against in the first round. Each team leader can then view the opposing team, friend the opposition team leader (and also their teammates) in Call of Duty: Mobile using their Gamertag (i.e. their Call of Duty Mobile username), which is associated with their GameBattles username and invite them to a private match. Once the lobby has been filled with team members from both teams, both team leaders should ensure the settings for each game have been set correctly and the match can get underway.
After a match has been completed i.e. a team has won 3 games, it is recommended that both team leaders report the results of their match on GameBattles immediately so as to update the bracket. If a team wishes to dispute a result due to any issues outside of their control that affected the outcome of a match (disconnections, latency, cheating, etc.), they should raise a complaint with the GameBattles operations team via Live Chat. Please be ready to provide evidence (screenshots, videos) to the team to support your claim.
Once a team has moved on the next round and the bracket has been updated to reflect who their next opponents are, the team leaders should ensure that their team is ready to play the next round if it is scheduled to take place on the same day.
The Rewards section
The top 2 teams per Regional Qualifier tournament will advance to the Regional Playoffs i.e. Stage 4. That means a total of 4 teams will qualify for the next stage and each player on the team will win 10,000 CP in Call of Duty Mobile for their efforts.
