Open Bracket Sign-ups for Toronto open now
We have opened the sign-ups to our Toronto Open Bracket! Players that have not managed to qualify can now sign up and still have a chance to take part in Intel Extreme Masters Toronto!

Qualifiers for Toronto are up ahead and as such, we are also accepting applicants for the Open Bracket in Canada!



As in previous seasons, we will host an Open Bracket at our StarCraft II spots, giving hopefuls who didn’t manage to qualify for whatever reasons a second chance at proving that they are worthy of being described as the World’s Best Gamers.


Remember that this season, we have introduced a small change to how the Open Bracket works in terms of slot distribution: while last season, we promised local players half of the spots, while giving the other half to the rest of the world, this season we have a clear number of slots distributed to certain countries.




For Toronto, the following slot distribution applies:




  • 4 Global

  • 2 Europe

  • 4 North America

  • 2 South America

  • 2 Asia

  • 2 Canada


The slots will be filled on the basis of player applications. Timely applicants will be accepted in order of WCS ranking (as of July 8th, 2014). Below is a summary of what you need to do to apply.
