After the first qualifying phase, the teams will compete in June, with others from their group, to conquer one of 16 places for the LAN finals, scheduled for autumn 2023. China’s position is also clarified in the official blog:
“Considering the current circumstances in China, as well as the fact that there has always been a team from China that has played very well, including two runners-up in the last two Overwatch World Cups, a team from China will receive an invitation to the group stage. There will be no World Cup Trials in China and the team will not compete in the online qualifiers. Tryouts in China will be different from those in other countries and regions. We will provide more information directly to the players in China.”
Registration for the World Cup event will be open from 1 February 2023 via the new Overwatch World Cup website to be released on the same day. Whoever wins the World Cup Trial will secure a place in their country or region’s March Trial.
