Good at ETQW? Represent the US at the World Cyber Games!

September 11, 2010

wcg.pngThe grand final of the World Cyber Games 2010 is set to take place in Los Angeles at the end of the month, and with Quake Wars Online one of this year’s promotional games, it’ll feature in a special tournament of its own. This is set to be a multi-national affair, with six-player teams from three continents competing for several thousand dollars in prize money.

With the Asian and European player slots filled already, the organizers are now looking for a team from the United States to enter the fray. Quake Wars Online is of course heavily based on Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars, and we’ve teamed up with the WCG to help find the team that should represent America at the Games.

The World Cyber Games 2010 Grand Finals are set take place from September 30 to October 3 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Air travel and hotel will be provided by the WCG, and your entire team will also receive complimentary Quake Wars Online player accounts so you can start practicing and (re)learn the ins and outs of the game. Please note that all of your team’s members must be legal residents of the United States to be eligible to enter.

How do you register your interest, you ask? Easy – just post the name of your team as well as the full names and nicknames of its players in the comments of this post. But be quick, the finals are just around the corner and there’s only room for one team.

Lastly, if you have any questions about the event, please post them in the comments as well – the WCG folks will be checking in regularly to answer them.

Update: Teams wishing to participate must register their interest by Sunday, 12 September, 23:59 Eastern Time. After that, a qualifying tournament will take place to determine which team gets to go to the World Cyber Games Grand Finals. Stay tuned for more information.
