With the announcement of Intel Extreme Master's first event in season 6, we'd like to share the details on how to qualify for North, South, and Central America.
2 players from the Americas are eligible to attend the IEM Global Challenge at Gamescon. Here is how we will determine who those two players will be:
American Qualifier Championship Bracket: 16 players will be seeded into a double elimination bracket. Every round of the tournament will be best of 3. The player to take first place in the Winner Bracket, and the Player take first place in the Loser Bracket will be qualified for the IEM Global Challenge. Here is the breakdown of how those 16 seeds will be determined: -4 to Invitees -4 Qualification slots at Go4SC2 -Cup 70 - July 3rd 2011 -4 Qualification slots at Go4SC2 Cup 71 - July 6th 2011 -4 Qualification slots at Go4SC2 Cup 72 - July 10th 2011 2 IEM slots at American Final (Championship Brackets) - July 13th - 16th 2011

Edit: spoke with Fenix and his sponsors will cover his cost, so he will be invited due to his performance last season.
I mean, you should at least talk to us before randomly deciding to invite other people #_# ... For this event of course Fnatic would send him even if he is in Korea. I'm glad you decided to clear this up though.

Really been enjoying the European IEM qualifiers today, keep up the nice work, tough that there's other tournaments at the same time, but you guys gotta do what ya gotta do and shouldn't have to worry too much if it interferes with other qualifiers !
