The series is structured in several stages throughout the year, starting in February for Asia and March for North America and EMEA ( Europe, the Middle East and Africa), culminating in the final events in November.

Format and Event Details

The OWCS has a circuit points system that will determine which teams advance to international LAN events.

During the qualifying stages and major events, teams accumulate points based on their performance, which influences their ability to qualify for these major events.

The series will be streamed across multiple platforms including YouTube and Twitch, with specific regional coverage to ensure fans around the world can follow the action. Additionally, there will be viewing incentives as in-game rewards that viewers can earn simply by tuning in to the matches.

Participation and Eligibility

The OWCS is open to players from various regions, with specific rules regarding eligibility and team formation. Interested players must register through official platforms such as FACEIT and can participate as residents or non-residents of a given region, as long as they meet the age requirements and account regulations.

Key Events and Dates

Schedule highlights include the Dallas Major from May 31 to June 2 and the Finals in Stockholm from November 22 to 24. Each phase of the tournament, from the qualifiers to the elimination stages, is designed to showcase the best of strategic play and competitive skill.
