What is the Community Qualifier?
For each of the six online qualification seasons a Community Qualifier seat will be awarded to the player with the best Community Qualifier performance. This performance is based on a win-loss ratio that rewards quality of games over quantity. To find out how the ratio is calculated and learn about the various tiebreaker scenarios for this qualification seat visit our Community Qualifier section. You can track your progress for this method of qualification by viewing the Community Qualifier Leaderboard. Please note: (1) only the top 40,000 ranked players will be displayed on the Community Qualifier leaderboard; (2) you must play a minimum of 30 games in one season to be eligible to win the Community Qualifier.

What is the Country Challenge?
Every online season all participating countries will be ranked according to their overall performance in the Community Qualifiers. Help your country to win a season’s Country Challenge by performing well in the Community Qualifier. The nation that wins the County Challenge will be rewarded with an incredible prize - a trip for two to watch the final day of FIWC 2014 in Rio de Janeiro and two tickets to a 2014 FIFA World Cup Match in Rio De Janeiro! The prize will be awarded as follows: All players that help their nation win the Country Challenge and that meet the Community Qualifier game minimum (30 matches) will go into a prize raffle for the Country Challenge Prize. One lucky name will be drawn at random!
