In there!!

So this is for US residents only I suppose?

I’d imagine anybody would be able to enter. Justin won an invite to SBO a couple of years ago in Europe.

Sbo quals on the east coast yo ugh!


No character lock?

In there?!?!?!

I will personally be at this event. Dont want to miss this.

all characters will be unlocked.

Wow this was a surprise

Next Level SBO Qualifiers Themesong:



He meant whether or not people will have to stick with a single character throughout the whole tournament. Which is probably the case because it’s SBO lol.

Shouldn’t this be a 2v2 tournament?

yes. sbo quals in a raw, hype environment


ill try to go to TNL but im bad at traveling :confused:

I am really hyped just by the fact that there is a qualifier on the east coast. Many thanks to Cen and anyone else who was behind making this happen.

I’d definitely like to see character lock for this tournament. It seems that would make the most sense, considering the SBO format.

As for having a 2v2 instead of singles…it’s really questionable whether or not that would yield a team with the two strongest players at the tournament, if you think about it.

it’s actually the standard format for sbo

Henry, what’s the reasoning for two singles tournaments instead of a 2v2 tournament? I’m fine with whatever but I’m just kind of curious.
