There's a noticeably increasing tension between modern upcoming first person shooters, developers are doing their best to properly market their product to both casual player base and competition thirsty veterans. As it turns out, most developers are trying to push their products on the market and attempt to kickstart their very first organized competitions in order to establish the primal competitive structure, which hopefully brings in more people interested in the genre.
Starting in December, Wickland is opening their first cup series with the help of ESL new games department. The game is currently on sale through steam. A key raffle will also be held, more info about the cup can be found in this news.
We will have four qualifiers, one qualifier each week. The cups will always be on a Monday (see schedule below). The Top 4 of each qualifier will play in the playoffs. If a player already qualified himself in a previous qualifier, the next player in the ranking will be forwarded into the playoffs. The qualifiers will be played in a BO1 mode, so you will be winning the match by winning one map. But the playoffs will be played in a BO3, so you have to win atleast two maps to win the match.
