How do I qualify?
Anyone can sign up with a team to compete in the qualifiers! There will be 6 new spots in Storm Division up for grabs this season and as such, there will be 6 qualifiers with each qualifier winner receiving a spot in Storm Division.

I'm a caster and would be interested in casting matches, can I cast Storm Division?
Yes! During qualifiers we will need multiple casters to help cover the entire bracket so we would be happy to have you! Please reach out to Wedge#7006.
