We have revised the North American regional qualifier altering its qualification spots from two to one. This is due to an internal error on our side which now sees the 16th spot for IEM Chicago reallocated to a separate method of qualification. We apologize for the confusion and any inconvenience this may have caused. We will be announcing the full details on the final qualification method for the 16th slot at IEM Chicago soon.
The North American Qualifier will see its format adjusted to accommodate this and will now be identical to the SA & Asia regions. An additional match has been added on 25.08.2018 at 21:00 EDT to determine the single NA team to qualify for IEM Chicago 2018.
