From today, through to the end of Season 9 of competitive play, Blizzard will track the average SR of the top 150 players from each country.

The full committees for each country participating in the World Cup will be revealed on May 31. The top 20 countries at the end of this period will be invited to compete in the 2018 Overwatch World Cup.

Additionally, the four countries hosting the group stages (France, South Korea, The United States, and Thailand) will gain automatic entry into the group stages as well. Players, including those playing in the Overwatch League, can compete for a position of a country where they hold citizenship.

More information about how to qualify for the tournament can be found via the announcement on the game's website here. People can actually watch the standings in real time as Blizzard have put them for all to see here. For those countries automatically qualified, if they make the top 20 through average skill rating, the 21st ranked country will have their place instead. Each player may vote once. Each committee will compose of a General Manager (GM), a coach, and a community leader. These committees will be built via the following process, across Phase 1 (May 1-14) and Phase 2 (May 17-29). It's important to note that these phases will only affect the Coach and Community Lead positions.

GMs will be selected by Blizzard. After the first vote, the top three candidates will then be voted on again. While the GM role will be specifically chosen by Blizzard, the other two roles will be endorsed by the top 150 players in the respective country, as well as the country's player base in the case of the community lead. Players may vote for multiple community leads. Finally, the Top 8 will face off in November.

"Committees will hold tryouts from June 1 through July 5". Final rosters can have up to 12 players and Blizzard will work with teams to select the seven players that will represent the team at various live events.
