To Uncle Sam’s Summoners!

We told you that more details on the 2011 World Cyber Games would follow shortly … here they are.

The WCG USA has announced the start of their National qualifiers. There will be a total of four online tournaments and the winner of each one will qualify for a live tournament to be held in the late summer/ early fall. Rules for the competition can be found here. If you think that your team has what it takes to represent the stars & stripes, then you should register at the WCG USA site.

Format:

  • 4 online qualifiers – 3 standard & 1 last chance qualifier
  • 128 team tournament – 16 seeded invitational slots; 112 open, first come/first serve slots
Note: Teams must have at least 5 rostered players with fully completed WCG USA profiles to lock down their slot
  • Last Chance Qualifier will be a 32 team invitational tournament featuring the top 8 teams from each qualifier (minus the winner) & 11 invitational slots.
  • Single elimination for preliminary rounds; Double elimination for top eight teams

Qualifier Dates:
  • Qualifier #1: April 25th ~ May 5th Sign up here
  • Qualifier #2: May 23rd ~ June 2ndSign up here
  • Qualifier #3: July 5th ~ July 15thSign up here
  • Last Chance Qualifier: July 18th ~ 29th – 32 team invitational tournament featuring the top 8 teams from each previous qualifer + 11 wildcards (based on WCG USA performances & circuit rankings).

Last year, CLG won the WCG North American bid and ultimately the Gold Medal at the Grand Finals, but there’s room to challenge them this year as the competitive scene is stronger than ever.

Remember that the competition for this year’s WCG is much larger and will feature dozens of countries battling it out at a live final. Stay tuned as we release a full schedule of streamed matches and more details on the WCG Canadian qualifier.
