Who can play? Anyone with an EU account who does not live in a country assigned to the Korea or Taiwan server can participate. More specifically, players living in Korea, Taiwan, or China cannot participate. Players living in the SEA countries can participate.
How do I register? Registering for the TSL3 Qualifier #1 is the same as registering for the TeamSpeak TL SC2 Open. You will be able to register with your TL account on Thursday, Jan 06 2:00pm EST. You will need to fill in your EU Battle.net account information to tie it to your TL account.
How do I qualify? There are 16 EU/NA qualifier spots. Winning a TL SC2 Open tournament (1st place) ensures that you qualify for the TSL3. Placing second to sixteenth earns you qualifier points. There are eight TL SC2 opens. Each of the eight winners will earn a TSL3 spot. Eight more players who have the most qualifier points will also qualify.
How many of the eight TL SC2 Opens can I play? If you meet the registration requirements, you can play all eight tournaments. You will need access to an EU and NA account to play all eight. It is fine if you borrow a friend's account, but there will be no account sharing during tournaments, as this causes unacceptable delays.
Example: Player A borrows Player B's EU account to play in TSL3 Qualifier #1. Player B cannot play in TSL3 Qualifier #1 unless he has access to a different account. This is to ensure that the tournament does not have delays. Two players cannot play on the same account for the tournament.
If I earn points with different Battle.net accounts, are they added together? Yes. Qualifier points are credited to the TL user, not the Battle.net account. As long as you fill in your Battle.net account information correctly, you will be awarded the points.
Can I play in more TSL3 Qualifiers after I win one? No. Once you win a TSL3 Qualifier you cannot play in any more. If we discover that a player was secretly playing in TSL3 Qualifier tournaments after winning one, that player will forfeit his TSL3 spot and be disqualified.
Can I smurf or help my friend qualify by playing on his account? No. Playing for another player is cheating. Two players cannot combine their results -- all qualifier points must be solely earned by one player. If we discover that a player was posing as someone else, both players will be disqualified.
