Similar to previous world finals, there was no HoN Tour season 6, so the NA/EU representative was chosen in a direct qualifier tournament. There, the winning team joins 3 best Thai and one SEA team to decide the world champion, bringing home the biggest share of the 2 million THB = 64039.12 USD prizepool. The event took place on 31st March and 1st April in Bangkok, Thailand yet again, however, this time without coverage by Breaky nor Frostburn, as the production was fully handled by Garena.
