Official QualifiersThe Amazon Cup will be hosting in game qualifiers weekly which is how players will be able to qualify for the Regional finals. Here is how players are about to sign up for the qualifiers:
- In the bottom left corner of the home screen, there will be a button for the ROE Amazon Cup
- Clicking that button will bring up all of the different events that are currently taking place.
- For the Regional event, you’ll want to select the region that you reside in, NA or EU, and select the join option.
- After joining a submitting icon will show up, meaning that matches played are submitting data for your qualifier.
- Hitting the button again will show joined, which means you are joined for the event but your results are not being submitted
- The community team also made a quick video going over the sign up process which is available here:
When your status is set to submitting, each first person perspective match of Ashen Eye you play will generate a score and submit it to the qualifier leaderboard. Players are able to play 20 matches, and then their score will be totaled for that weeks qualifier. The three players with the highest score each week will qualify for the regional championship.
