Match start

When your match starts, check who your opponent is in the bracket and create a lobby with them in Quake. Please sign up with your Quake-nickname. This way it's easy to find your opponent in-game. If you can't find your opponent in-game, please use the Discord room "dbe-world-cup" on Dragonborn esport's Discord server and find your opponent there. You can use Qrindr for the server and champion picking, but remember to set the seed appropriately. QPL bo3 format.

You are only obliged to write to tournament admin DEFENSE on Discord if you qualify for the Finals.

If a player doesn't show up in 15 minutes, the other player gets a default win and proceeds in the bracket. If both players are absent, the higher seed will advance. If the opponents have issues finding each other in-game, and one player proves they are available by writing in the Discord, and the other player doesn't, the player who is active in Discord will get their default win.

If you run into any problems during the Open Qualifier, or have any questions, join the Dragonborn discord where there will be a room called dbe-world-cup where players can communicate with the administrator DEFENSE and/or other players about the tournament. The server link is the following:

Score reporting

The winning player of each match-up reports the score directly on this website. Just click the match-up in the bracket and you can easily report the score. It is most important that you report the score for your matches, as the bracket will not be able to run smoothly if you simply look at your next match-up and contact the opponent without reporting your previous match. It is your responsibility to report the match, and not following this rule can lead to disqualification. Deliberately reporting a false score to your favor will also lead to disqualification.

If you run into any problems with score reporting, contact DEFENSE on Discord DBE|DEFENSE#7278.

In case you can't report the scores over this website for some reason, it can also be done over Discord in the chatroom dbe-world-cup on Dragonborn esport's server, but if you wish to report your scores there, make sure to make it clear which match you are reporting the scores for.


There is no prize pool for the Open Qualifier for DBE World Cup, however if you manage to qualify for the Finals, there is a $1,120 USD prize pool as well as gear prizes to be claimed.


Do you have any other questions that is not related to anything in the rules?
