The 20 highest-performing squads will meet up with 20 other pre-invited teams to face off in the showdown to end all showdowns.

On top of that, the nail-biting Solo Yolo event will also be making a return with its own $100,000 prize for the individual who makes it to the end. The final dates for the big competitions are yet to be announced, but the post-Open qualifying rounds will take place on August 20-21 for EU and NA respectively.
