European Open Combat Championship 2020 Qualification Overview

The sixth Race to Berlin is on!

The table below shows the possible invitation list for the European Open Championship 2020 end-of-year finals on Saturday the 28th of November in Berlin, Germany.

On Monday 2nd November invitations will be extended to the top 8 players who are European residents and have taken part in at least three tournaments. If a player declines the invitation, the next lower ranked player who has taken part in at least three tournaments will be invited. There may be a 9th special invite, to be decided in November, to reward strong participation and/or unique contributions to competitive combat throughout 2019.

The "provisional position" shows who would be invited if the invites went out today. Closer to the event, the top players can't be overtaken, no matter what happens at later tournaments. Those "not yet qualified" can theoretically be overtaken by enough players ranked just below them to bump them from the top 10.

This is a rough guide only, for the current top 30 players in the 2020 open race rankings. The formula will become more accurate as the number of tournaments left in 2020 decreases.
