The Six August 2020 Major has already wrapped up in APAC and LATAM region, and soon the European region will be joining the August Major. The EU August Major will also be held completely online, keeping the safety of players, staff, and attendees in mind.
The EU ‘Mini-Major’ will start right after the NA region has been completed, and here’s every detail Ubisoft has shared with us.
The EU online tournament will kick off on August 21th, where the top 4 teams of the European League will compete in a double elimination bracket in order to find the best team in this region.
The top four European giants will go head to head in the quarter-finals, and the losing teams will move towards the lower bracket for their last chance to make it through to the Grand Finals. All games will be played as best of three except for the Grand Finale which will be a best of five match.
Prize Pool and SI points
The total prize pool for the European region will be $125,000 distributed as such:
- 1st place: (285) $62,500
- 2nd place: (165) $31,250
- 3rd place: (105) $18,750
- 4th place: (50) $12,500
