The time has come for Full Tilt Poker Challenge: QL, big online TDM tournament with great prize pot of 1 000€.
Cup will have 2 divisions where even less experienced teams will get the chance to win part of the prize as well. After group stage, both divs will get their respective play-offs until winners are known. Cup will run from January till end of the February. Signups have already started and will end 4th of January.
Important to mention is that all additions to the squads should be done before cup start (6. January). If not there are some restrictions to adding players to the squads after cup starts:
It will be allowed to add just ONE player when cup start into the team but only:
- before playoffs,
- if that player hasn't been playing this cup.
Transfers between teams will not be allowed.
Mercs are not allowed.
Fake-nicking is not allowed.
Any teams attempting to brake these rules will be disqualified from this cup and banned from the next one.
All players should double check if their PlayerId/GUID is entered for Quake Live (which is your QL nick in-game) under the Edit profile>PlayerIds.
Failure to have it updated will result in not being approved for the cup !
If help is needed contact admins on #esh.ql @ quakenet.
TEAMS WITH AN ESPORTS SITE WILL ALSO HAVE TO COMPLY WITH THE FOLLOWING RULE:
