The inaugural Quake World Championships, the ultimate esports showcase of pure skill in Quake Champions, is moving on to the Global Finals after weeks of intense competition from some of the greatest professional players in the world. At QuakeCon, Aug 24-26 in Dallas, Texas, the best of the best will fight it out on the main stage for their share of the $1 Million Prize Pool and to claim their place amongst the legends of esports’ founding franchise.

Throughout the Quake World Championships, dozens of teams and hundreds of players have faced off in qualifiers in both the classic proof of skill, 1v1 Duel mode, and the new team-based 4v4 mode, Sacrifice. 16 Sacrifice teams and 64 Duel players competed this weekend in Regional Finals in Burbank, CA and Leicester, England to try to earn their trip to QuakeCon.

Eight esports teams earned a spot in the Sacrifice Finals, including top units like international esports powerhouse Team Liquid, and NOTOFAST, whose member list reads like a “who’s who” of Quake competitive legends: noctis, fazz, stermy and toxjq. In addition, 24 elite individual fraggers have punched their tickets for QuakeCon’s Duel Finals, including Liquid.Rapha, the 2016 QuakeCon Duel Champion; cYpher, from Virtus.pro.cYpheR, the 2014 QuakeCon Duel Champion; Liquid.DaHanG, the 2014 QuakeCon Duel runner-up; and Na’Vi.C8LLER, the 2010 QuakeCon duel runner-up.

An additional eight Duel Finalists will earn their spots by fighting through the Open Competition to be held in the Bring-Your-Own-Computer (BYOC) area of QuakeCon.
