The Summit 4 is the fourth tournament in a series of unforgettable events spanning the course of the past two years.

Team registration details will be announced shortly for the SEA, Americas and EU regional qualifiers scheduled to take place between September 26 – 27.
Eight teams (top teams from the open qualifiers and directly invited teams) will compete for The Summit 4 $100,000 minimum prize pool, which has the potential to continue to grow through the planned Compendium and Chest sales. Full travel support will be provided to the teams.
Further details will be announced in the coming weeks.
