Teams will compete for four spots to enter the Wild Rift Icons Global Championship and a combined prize pool of USD 200,000.
The WCS Playoffs 2022 is broken down into the following stages:
Play-ins: April 23 – 24
Playoffs: April 26 – 27, April 29 – May 1, May 6 – 7
Finals: May 8
Five teams from the Wild Rift Champions SEA & Wild Rift Oceania Championships tournaments (1st runner ups from WCS Masters, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, and the champion of Wild Rift Oceania Championships) will play a single round-robin match. Every team will play each other in a Best-of-3 format.
The top team among the five will go straight to the Playoffs, while 2nd and 3rd place will compete in a best-of-five for the remaining Playoffs spot.
The two teams who advanced from the Play-ins will meet with the six sub-regional champions of Wild Rift Champions SEA and compete under a double elimination format.
The eight teams will be split into two pools of four. The first pool consists of the sub-regional champions of WCS Masters, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam, while the second pool consists of the sub-regional champions of WCS Malaysia & Singapore, Indonesia, and the two qualified teams from the Play-ins. Teams from the same sub-regions cannot be drawn against each other.
The playoff matches will see teams from the first pool drawn to play against teams from the second pool.
Winners of the first playoff matches will advance to the next round of the Upper Bracket, while the defeated team will drop to Lower Bracket. All matches will be played in a best-of-5 format, except for the Lower Bracket Finals and Grand Finals, which will be played in a Best-of-7 format.
Teams eliminated from the Upper Bracket will have another chance to make the finals by winning their remaining matches in the Lower Bracket.
The top four teams will represent the SEA region and compete in the Wild Rift Icons Global Championship taking place in Europe this summer.
The first game starts at 14:00 GMT+8, April 23, 2022 and will be live on Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube via Riot’s official channels as well as on partner broadcast channels.
