  • Compete Now in the European eTour: Scandinavian Mixed 🇸🇪

    25 Mar 2020

    The next stop in the European eTour series is: Sweden, for the Scandinavian Mixed hosted by Henrik and Annika.

    For this European eTour Qualifier, the format will look a little different so we’ve outlined the details below for reference.

    The live event will still feature 8 WGT players and a total cash purse prize of $10,000 USD, and of course will be live streamed for anyone to tune in!

    European eTour Qualifier: Scandinavian Mixed:

    • This qualifier round will be played over the next two months, made up of eight week-long rounds

    • In each 1-week round, the top 16 (new) players on the leaderboard will advance to the 128-player bracket round

    • Players can only qualify once, with their earliest qualifying score being counted as their official score

      • For example: If a player finishes in the top 16 in weeks 1 and 2, they’ve earned their spot in the bracket round using only their week 1 score (even if their score and/or leaderboard placement is better in week 2)

    • Remember, each qualifier will take only the top 16 new players who have not yet qualified from previous weeks, regardless of their score compared to qualified players in other weeks

      • For example: A player outside of the top 16 in week 1 who holds a better score than a player inside the top 16 in week 8 will not qualify

    • Once the top 128 are confirmed for the bracket round, players will be seeded by their qualifying score

    • If two or more players share the same score going into the bracket round, seeding will be determined by:

      • (1) Normal leaderboard tiebreakers, then (2) the week in which they qualified

      • If two players share the same score from the same week’s qualifier, the normal leaderboard tiebreaker rules will apply (found here). 

      • If two players share the same score from different week’s qualifiers, the player who qualified in the earlier week will be the higher seeded player.

    The European eTour: Scandinavian Mixed tournament is the third of five live events leading up to the Global Finals in Dubai featuring a $50,000 cash prize. Learn more about the European eTour series here

    *European eTour Qualifier: Scandinavian Mixed runs 3/16/20-5/10/20 and is open to all WGT players, see full rules for details and eligibility.

    CC Event #121 runs 3/19-3/20 with multiple 4-hour Clashes, so be sure to play as many games as you can for your club and keep your eyes on the leaderboard.

    CC Events allow WGT Country Clubs to compete against each other for bragging rights and special in-game rewards. The club that earns the most total points from their Clashes wins!

When your club enters the event, you’ll be matched with a similar skill level club. Start playing! A timer will keep track of how much play is left in that Clash. Club members from both sides can play as many rounds as they’d like during that time using Club Passes and Superpasses to earn points.
