Winter Major FAQ Announced

 

While we are waiting to enjoy the Fall Major, starting this November 13th with the Group Stage, Valve already released updated info on the next season.

The registration will open from the day after the end of the Frankfurt Major, on November 22th, and will close on December 8th 21.00 CET. The rosters will be locked until the first week of March, right after the end of the Winter Major.

 

Every team need to register and confirm their players again, it doesn’t matter if their roster won’t change, and this registration system will be used for every season. After the next Major there will be just another trade window, which will be the last one available until after The International 2016.

There is also a new rule about the teams participating in the Qualifiers: now they will be able to register up to 2 substitutes when they sign up for the tournament. They can use these subs if needed for the Main Event but they can only use the main 5 players during the Open and Regional Qualifiers. Invictus Gaming’s situation probably caused the introduction of this new rule, in fact they won’t be able to participate in the Frankfurt Major due to Visa’s problems with their player China Su "super" Peng. In this season, the teams that played in the Qualifiers couldn’t select any substitute so they will be replaced.

 

The remaining FAQ dind’t change from the previous Major, you can find the complete list on Valve’s blog.
