For MM11, E2C will be working with multiple European organizations to host qualifying EU events that will send 6 tournament winners to MM11. Those tournaments include:

Valhalla on 1/05-1/07 (Copenhagen, Denmark): https://smash.gg/tournament/valhalla

CCE: Smash Valley on 1/20 (Essen, Germany): https://smash.gg/tournament/calyptus-cup-essen-x-smash-valley

The highest placing player at each tournament will be offered a free flight to attend MM11. The same player cannot win more than 1 flight. In that case, or if a player declines the flight, the runner up will then be offered the flight.

By working with other regions, we hope to do a lot of cross promoting among our communities, and give players in those communities an opportunity to showcase their skills against the best in the Midwest.
