The 2018 Silverback Open Championships included the Open 1v1, Open 3v3, the Open BGirl 1v1 and the Open Under 14 1v1 competitions.
The Open 1v1 was an open competition meaning anyone could enter the preliminary phase – all ages were welcome, male and female.
Sixteen competitors were selected as automatics into the Final Round of 32 – another 16 competitors qualified for the Final Round of 32 through preliminaries, tie-breakers and a Qualifying Round of 32.
In order to be eligible to compete, competitors registered with UDEF, which serves as the membership organization and sanctioning body for competitions that are part of the Pro Breaking Tour, an annual series of prize money breaking competitions hosted principally in the United States.
There was no registration fee for competitors in the Silverback Open Championships.

Silverback Open 1v1 Open Winners for 2015, 2016 and 2017: Winners of the past three Silverback Open’s: 2015 Victor, 2016 Thesis and 2017 Issei.
Leading Two Breakers in UDEF 1v1 Tour Standings for 2018: The leading two breakers in the YTD 2018 UDEF 1v1 Tour standings. There have been ten 1-v-1 events so far in 2018 which will be followed by the Silverback Open on October 27-28 in Philly and Toy Soldiers on December 15 in Austin, Texas. If one of the two top breakers in the 1v1 Tour standings has already qualified as an automatic through other criteria or is unavailable, then the next breaker on the 1v1 standings list after the August 10th event would be selected. After ten events, Zeku is in 1st (50 points), Victor in 2nd (33 points) and Fleau in 3rd (25 points). Victor has already qualified through other criteria, so Zeku and Fleau qualify.
UDEF 1v1 Tour Winner for 2017: The Tour 1v1 winner from 2017. In 2017, there was a three-way tie for first between El Niño, Issei and Thesis.
Winners of Two International 1v1 Events in 2018: Winners of two Undisputed Series 1v1 events YTD in 2018, Unbreakable, Battle Pro, Outbreak Europe and IBE. Stripes won Unbreakable and Issei won Battle Pro.
Undisputed Finals Winners for 2015, 2016 and 2017: Winners from the Undisputed Finals in the past three years. This includes Victor (2015 and 2017) and Thesis (2016).
BC One Winners for 2016, 2017 and 2018: Winner of 2016 (Issei), 2017 (Menno), and 2018 (Lil Zoo) – since 2018 winner Lil Zoo is unavailable, and 2018 finalist Luigi is also unavailable, an additional wildcard slot has been awarded.
Wildcards: In addition to the qualifiers who qualify under the above-noted criteria, the Silverback Open will invite additional breakers as wild cards into the final 32, based upon their performance in competitions during 2017 and 2018.
