The respective winner of each of these qualifier tournaments gets invited to the Masters Series Finals at QuakeCon. In Grapevine, near Dallas, TX, the top players battle it out against one another and take home the prize money. The 2019 Masters Series Finals, a Last Class Standing tournament, is also the biggest eSports event for the game.
