So, after trying out Reflex, it appears that CS:GO analyst, and personality Launders has really grown to like the game. So much so that's he'll be hosting a North American tournament through his BOXR community on September 26, 2015. This will be a round-robin duel tournament with a best of three finals. Check-in is currently scheduled for 12:00 CST, with games commencing at 12:45 CST, although these times are subject to change. Please support the community, and make sure you sign-up!
"Hey, I'm launders. I commentate professional Counter-Strike matches, stream, and make videos that aim to help people improve their game in CS:GO. BOXR is a community which was founded largely on people who were fans of the movement tutorials I made for CS:GO, and this will be the first time I've really found another competitive game appealing enough that I felt like sharing it with with more than just my stream as I've been uploading Reflex content to my channel on Youtube.
Since watching the "Reflex Movement Overview" video on YouTube I fell in love with what I now consider to be one of my favourite games to play. As someone who has dedicated most of my time to helping people learn, understand and improve their movement in CS:GO, I can really appreciate a game that focuses on this aspect of the meta, especially being based off Quake engine movement. The goal of this tournament is simply to help bring more attention to Reflex and help you all build up the community in an awesome up and coming Arena FPS.
I truly appreciate how this game looks and feels and am happy to see many arena veterans feel the same way. I haven't played as much Quake as I have CS but coming from a background in games like Starcraft I can definitely say I love the competitive nature of a 1v1 layout and since it is no secret that there is a need for a premier Arena FPS, I'd like nothing more than to see that game be Reflex.
Also even though I am the one putting up the money for the prize, and driving it with whatever publicity I can manage to squeeze out of our CS:GO community, the idea wouldn't have become a reality without the help of Nathan who has helped out tremendously from a logistical and organizational stand point. So thank you to him and to all of you who participate either by playing or tuning in."
