The Code S Season 3 Qualifiers were held over August 8th-9th, finalizing the roster of twenty players who will compete in the main event. Code S Season 3 will begin on August 22nd, with the round-of-20 groups to be announced at a future date.
The biggest news out of the qualifiers was the absence of Trap and Rogue, leading many fans to speculate that they will be beginning their mandatory military service soon. Zest was also missing from the line-up, having already announced his retirement earlier this year.
With the reopening of the 'foreigner house' in Korea, several non-Korean players gave the qualifiers a shot. Reynor and Astrea were able to make it to the main event, but other notable players such as SpeCial, Scarlett, and Nice were unable to make the cut.
