How will the remaining teams qualify?
The Summer Season is nearing completion, so there are very few unknowns. Most of the regions are either in their Regional Finals phase, or in their Summer Playoffs (because they don’t have Regional Finals). Europe is the one major region that is behind everyone schedule-wise, and the rest of the teams are waiting for the Summer Playoffs to complete.
