The winning teams of each regional tournament will directly qualify for the finals. And rest of the teams will be coming through the Play-ins stage.

|1||Burst The sky (Vietnam)|
|2||EVOS Divine (Indonesia)|
|3||eArena Esports (Thailand)|
|5||Blacklist International (MCP)|
|6||Team Elite (India)|
|7||Hotshot Esports (Pakistan)|
|8||HQ Esports (Vietnam)|
|11||Siren GPX (Indonesia)|
The points distribution is designed such that the teams will get points for each kill and the placement they achieve out of 12 positions.
There is 1 point for each kill (Kill Points) and no point (Placement Points) for the 12th and 11th positions.
The placement points are as follow:
The teams should try to be at least in the top 5 placement in each match to get some remarkable placement points because below that position, the points aren’t enough I think. Also, teams should focus on Kills because each kill will give them 1 point. It means if you get 12 kills as a team, it is equal to the points of 1st position (Booyah).
You shouldn’t start the early fights for kills but you should play by surviving and try to grab the placement points at first. Once you go near the last or second last zone, if you have the manpower, you’ll automatically get the kills points too.
