Stars from 8 regions are coming together for the International Wildcard All-Star tournament!
All-Star teams from Brazil, Commonwealth of Independent States, Japan, Latin America, Oceania, Southeast Asia and Turkey are coming together to compete for the championship, with the winner moving through to the All-Star Event between 8-11 December.
Running from Dec 1-4, 2016 IWCA will feature four different game modes. The first three days will be a mixture of 5v5 and 1v1 matches, with the fourth moving teams into the Knockout Stage. Here, the top four regions will battle it out for the championship.
The Knockout Stage will see the top three regions from the winner squad and top team from the loser squad face off against each other. All match-ups will be played as a best of 3.
This year's 1v1 tournament will be a little different to previous years. Players from Ice and Fire will be forced to fight each other gladiator style, with every 1v1 is considered as 1 match of Bo5 series.
Regions will be split into two squads: Fire and Ice. Throughout IWCA, teams will earn scores for both their squad and region, with four teams advancing to the Knockout Stage. Check the FAQ for more info.
This one’s simple, every region will play a single team match in 5v5 tournament draft mode.
Each All-Star player will take part in a 1v1 match on Howling Abyss. In true Rambo spirit, victory will be awarded to the player who obtains first blood, the first tower, or is the first to reach 100 CS.
All for one and one for all! Only this time there are five musketeers. Teams will clash in a 5v5, with each team consisting of a single, unified champion. The team that proves themselves the best mono-champ crew will increase their region and squad score by one.
Assassins unite! It’s assassins on assassins in a 5v5 mode consisting entirely of—you guessed it—assassins. The craftiest team to out-assassin the other will increase their region and squad score by one.
