An undisclosed number of teams from each of the world's leagues will be sent to the Season 3 World Championships. However, it has already been announced that the victorious region at the All-Star Tournament will gain the advantage of having an additional team from their region participating. The best four regions will receive a bye into the elimination rounds, while the last place region's representatives will have to fight it out through the group stages.
The Southeast Asian region is protected from fifth place due to securing a bye into the semifinals by succeeding in Season 2. As such, their top-seeded team is already guaranteed entry into Season 3's World Championship elimination rounds.
