This event marks the first-ever National Championships held in Malaysia.

Only players residing in Malaysia could play this tournament.
With a cap of 128 entries, players would enter the Qualifiers to face each other in up to 7 Swiss rounds with open teamsheets, in best-of-one matches, on 28 May 2022.
The top 8 players at the end of the day would qualify to the Playoffs, which would be held in a live event in Kuala Lumpur on 11 June 2022.
