Yesterday the first of two Qualifier Cups for the Duel tournament at DreamHack Winter 2011 was played. Just before the tournament started we decided to announce three invites on IRC to open up the increase the chance of up and coming players attending at DreamHack.
That means that Cypher (Defending Champion), av3k and strenx was invited before the cup started.
The tournament was ran by ZOTAC and with some interesting and perhaps upset matches we had our two first invites. strenx finished first with 3 straight maps vs Pawelek (aka matr0x). Pawelek had some tough games before the final game but beating players like cypher and reload.
Since strenx already was invited an invite opened up for the players playing the semifinal and quarterfinals. We decided that reload should receive the second invite because of some impressive play and he was as close as it possibly can be to qualify to DreamHack Summer 2011.
