In less than two weeks from now, we will have the three Chinese teams that will go to Los Angeles and battle in the Champions 2023.
As opposed to the other regions, China won't have a Last Chance Qualifier, but will rather have an ordinary Qualifier from which 3 teams will qualify and advance directly to Champions 2023.

But before that, let's explain how the Hybrid Elimination Bracket works.
China Qualifier Format
The teams that are participating consist of 2 types of qualifies:
- Invited Teams
- Preliminary Stage teams
The top 2 teams from each act (1 and 2) get the direct invite and will play straight from the Upper Brackets. In this case, in Act 1 the top 2 teams were Attacking Soul Esports and EDward Gaming. This is how Act 2 turned out to be in terms of placements and qualifications.
The standings for Act 2 were:
In this case, we have two teams that already have the direct invite, so the next two teams that should the invite are: Bilibili Gaming & FPX. The preliminary teams are the top 8 teams from the China Preliminaries.
Let's talk about the format now. Knockout rounds are played between the preliminary teams, and they are Bo3 Single Elimination games. Later on, the winners from the Knockout Rounds meet the Direct Invite teams in the Upper Bracket. Everything after that is a Double Elimination Bo3 up until the Upper Bracket and Lower Bracket finals which are Best of Five.
