BRACKETS WITH SPOILERS - http://bit.ly/vZMrdX
The Cyber Sports Network is proud to announce a tournament like no other, with their first StarCraft II / QuakeLive Free For All Cup. 32 StarCraft II players will compete in a QuakeLive + SC2 Tournament to determine the first SC2/QL Champion!
The event has been opened up to 32 players and every player that 'Checks In' on the day of the event will be able to participate in the event. Good Luck and thank you all for the support. Make sure to check back here and the Team Liquid Thread for updates!
The Winner of the deathmatch stage of the event will receive a 1 month Premium Subscription to QuakeLive. This allows a player to join servers with premium maps and game types.
The top 2 overall winners will also receive a 1 Month Subscription. If the overall winner is also the player that won the FFA portion of the event, the prize will go to the next player in line.
CSN would like to thank ID Software for donating these prizes and for their continued support of the Cyber Sports Network.
StarCraft II is currently the largest and most lucrative esports game in the world and the Quake series is the reason for the existence of esports. These two games have changed how the community and industry sees esports and this tournament will bring the games together for the first time. This tournament is for those StarCraft II players that have recently showed an interest in QuakeLive and who have expressed an appreciation for the skill set involved.
QuakeLive is a free (in browser) First Person Shooter that requires precise mouse control and a high APM (Action Per Minute). StarCraft players know these requirements well and many of them have mastered the skills of managing a map filled with items and troops that must be given precise instructions to destroy an opponent.
The QuakeLive is currently starving for new players and CSN feels that a tournament catered specifically to StarCraft II players interested in trying QuakeLive will go a long ways in helping to revive the father of esports.
Registration open to any SC2 player that is new to QuakeLive or of Amatuer status
32 Players allowed
Free For All - 8 players per server will compete for the highest 'Frag' (kills) Total to determine advancing players
2 Maps per round (Scores from each map added together to determine advancing players)
2 Rounds for the bracket
Top 4 players based on final round frags (points) will advance to the StarCraft II portion of the event.
Top 6-8 players will play in a single elimination SC2 Bracket to determine Champion
Players will use the Cyber Sports Network Events page to register for the event. Once the 'Check In' process has been completed, on the day of the event, administrators will divide the players into groups and post those groups, the map choices and a link to the server.
Players will play a Deathmatch (FFA) round of 2 maps. Map scores will be added together to determine the top 4 players that will advance to the next round.
Once the field of players has been narrowed down to 8 players, a final round of 2 maps will be played and frags tallied to determine the 6-8 players that will advance to the single elimination StarCraft II portion of the event where the first SC2/QL Champion will be crowned.
The Cyber Sports Network would like to thank players from both games in their support of our events, coverage and community involvement. CSN believes in creating relationships that transcend genres and building esports from the base... up!
