Online Qualifiers: 16th of September to 13th of October
Finals: At Insomnia XXI LAN-party in Pori, Friday 25th to Saturday 26th of October
The team must consist of five to six players when being enrolled, so there is the possibility of changing one player in between the online qualifiers and the final tournament. The players must be from the same school, or study in the same city if they are from different schools. Only five players can qualify to the final tournament. The contact person / captain of the team enrolls the entire team.
The finals are played with computers supplied by the event organizers. The teams must, however, take their own mice, keyboards and headsets with them to the finals.
