Pilot Academy Format

Between January 7, 2023, and March 26, 2023, teams will be able to compete in approved community tournaments for points and a spot on the Pilot Academy Leaderboard.

At the end of the Pilot Academy season, the top 6 eligible teams on the leaderboard will be invited to the next GUNDAM EVOLUTION Showdown.
Additionally, after the conclusion of the season, an open Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) will be held for the remaining teams. The top 2 eligible teams from the LCQ will also be invited to the next Showdown.

We will be sharing more information about the next GUNDAM EVOLUTION Showdown soon.
