Mineski Events Team presents its first ever dedicated esports league for Crossfire Philippines, the Rivals Series. Featuring a total of P280,000 in prize pool for this year across two seasons and one grand final event, it's time for Crossfire players of the country to shine.

10 Offline Qualifiers per Rivals Series

There will be 10 offline qualifier events in each Rivals Series. These qualifiers will happen on two Mineski cybercafe branches on the following dates:

Any team may join any qualifier they wish. Once a team has qualified, that team cannot join anymore qualifiers within a Rivals Series.

Champion team of each qualifier will also get a bonus P1000 cash prize.

Registration of each qualifier will open 7 days prior at Mineski's forums: community.mineski.net.


10-Team Group Stage

After 10 qualifiers, the champion team of each will be playing the 10-team group stage. A round robin format is to be played in each group - one team plays every other team in their own group once.

All games in the group stage will be covered live by MineskiTV through Twitch.

Once the group stage games are done, the 2 lowest ranking teams in each group are eliminated. 2nd and 3rd placers in each group will advance to round 1 of the Playoffs. The 1st placer of each group will wait in round 2.

Also, each group's 1st placer will receive a bonus P5000 cash prize and everyone else will receive P2000 each.


The final stretch of each Rivals Series is the Playoffs. Only the top 3 teams from the group stage will make it this round. The format of the playoffs is single elimination.
