Organizers of the first Major tournament in 2018 have published the format of the qualifiers in all regions and also announced the list of teams-participants that will not have to pass open qualifiers.

It is worth to notice that only one slot is given for each region, however, finalists of the qualifiers in Europe and CIS will have a chance to take part in Wild Card, where they will be waited by the finalists of New Blood Championships in the face of Skyville and PG.Barracx.
