So if you have a competitive bone in your body (and who doesn’t?), read on for an overview of the exciting changes. There are many ways you, your team, and your community can get involved.
But first, a quick—and epic—reminder of what you can expect. . . .
More Teams, More Action
This year, there’ll be more opportunities to prove your teams’ prowess on the world stage:
Points Win Prizes: How to Qualify
To advance, teams can earn points through a variety of events:

|Online Arena Cup||160||80||36||20||12|
