How do I join the Fast-Track Qualifiers for ESEA League?

If you have already earned your spot in your desired division, you do not need to worry about participating in the fast-track qualifier events.

For example, if you are already in Advanced, you should not participate in any of these events. However, if you are in Main then you may want to take part in the Advanced qualifier for a chance to move up.

Intuitively, new 5-stacks who are just considering taking their game to the next level in CS2 should take part in all of the qualifiers they have the requirements for in order to get more experience and maximize their chances of moving up.  See below for the ELO Requirements & How to Register.

Reminder: Your team will need to use ALL 5 out of 5 players from the qualifiers in 3 out of their first 4 matches in upcoming season. Forfeits do not count toward this total and teams that do not meet that requirement will have their matches forfeited in line with our hijack policy.
