Question on "feeder" tournaments


I noticed that NKI went straight into the semi-finals of HD Remix at this years Evo, I believe because he won a major tournament during the year.

So my question is: is there a list of “feeder” tournaments that, if you win them, allow you to jump straight to the semi’s? I searched around and couldn’t find any such list. There also doesn’t seem to be any written rules describing how this work.

Many thanks in advance!

Edit: So, I found the Midwest Championships. Are there any others?


it was pretty random dude. a recent tourney in hawaii, midwest champs, and the gamestop tourney were the only “feeder” tourneys this year. i think evo should/probably will streamline this next year so that other huge tourneys become “feeder” tourneys to determine evo seeds as well.
