Despite the global pandemic, the Summoners War Championship (SWC 2020) will take place! This guide brings together all the important information you need to know. The preliminary phases have already begun and the best Summoners in the world are on the battlefield.
It will be a long road to the world final, which will bring together the 8 best competitors. This year they will be competing for the $210,000 cash prize and a place in the Summoners Wars Hall of Fame.
The top players have been pre-selected based on their performances during seasons 12 and 13 at the World Arena.
Due to the Covid-19, the format of the SWC 2020 has been slightly modified. All matches will be played online and no public will be invited, for obvious safety reasons.
The guide to the 3 phases of the SWC 2020
The competition will last for more than 3 months, and these are expected to be particularly intense. The organizers have changed the format a little from last year because of logistical difficulties (transport, visa, etc.). It will therefore be more condensed and divided into 3 phases.
No. 1: the preliminary phases
The preliminary phases of SWC 2020 will take place from 5 to 20 September. Players are divided into 3 regions. America and Europe will have 16 participants. The competition in the Asian region will be even denser, as it will be divided into several sub-regions (South Korea, Japan, Taiwan/Hong Kong, South East Asia and China*), each with 8 representatives.
The preliminary phases operate on a double elimination system (winner and looser groups). Each player therefore has two chances to validate his ticket.
*China has a special status and will function as an independent region. It therefore has the fixed and guaranteed number of one competitor for the SWC 2020.
No. 2: Regional Cups
8 players per region (Europe, America and Asia without China) will advance in the regional cups. At that time, there will be no more room for error in this knockout tree that will determine the participants in the world final.
- the American Cup will be held on October 24th;
- the Asian Cup on October 31;
- the European Cup on November 7th.
No. 3: the final phase of the SWC
There are still many details to be determined for the grand finale. It will take place in November but the organizers have not yet blocked the dates. The exact format also remains to be defined but the information should arrive soon.
We already know that there will be 2 representatives for the American region and 2 for the European region. Asia will have 4 competitors (including 1 Chinese).
A special rule: SWC mode
In thisindividual tournament, there will be a special rule, known as SWC mode. A player cannot pre-ban the same monster during two successive games. He must therefore wait at least one intermediate game to pre-ban the same character from New . A rule that influences strategy and forces you to think in the longer term. All monsters, even the best of the moment, will have their chance.
Cash-prize of the SWC 2020
There will be a total of $210,000 in cash prize money to be shared for SWC 2020 participants. First of all, the regional phases will reward the best teams of the regional cups with cash in addition to a possible qualification: $10,000 (1st), $5,000 (2nd) and $2,500 (3rd tie). Then, the top 3 in the grand final will take the lion's share. With 100,000, 20,000 and 10,000 dollars, the podium will have plenty to cheer about.
The top 8 will also have the opportunity to win a cat emblem of the game. The opportunity to immortalize their performance and let everyone know about it!
