The journey to be crowned the 2019 VS Gaming Masters begins today as 80 teams launch their campeign in the VS Gaming Masters Online Qualifier.
The Masters Online Qualifier is the first event in the VS Curcuit, which includes two LAN qualifiers and the Online League. The culmination is the VS Gaming Masters Grand Finals which take place at Comic-Con Africa is September.
The winning team will not only be the first team to secure their position at the Masters Finals, but will also walk away with R3000 in prizes. The second place team will walk away with R2000.
The rosters will remain open to changes up until the morning of the 15th of March 2019. Thereafter the rosters will be locked and no further changes will be possible.
We are also implimenting an anti-boost rule which we hope will prevent teams from recuiting super-subs in order to progress further than they would with their normal line-up. The rule comes in the form of a cool-down, whereby players who join the team may not play an official matches for another team for a period of 14 days after their most recent Online Qualifier match.
In addition to the cool-off rule, teams must please be aware that the roster lock overlaps with Leg 2 of the Online League, meaning that any player in the team after the 15th of March will not be able to leave until Leg 2 comes to an end.
