Registration Now Open!
StarCraft II is currently the largest and most lucrative esports game in the world and the Quake series is the reason for the existence of esports. These two games have changed how the community and industry sees esports and this tournament will bring the games together for the first time. This tournament is for those StarCraft II players that have recently showed an interest in QuakeLive and who have expressed an appreciation for the skill set involved.
QuakeLive is a free (in browser) First Person Shooter that requires precise mouse control and a high APM (Action Per Minute). StarCraft players know these requirements well and many of them have mastered the skills of managing a map filled with items and troops that must be given precise instructions to destroy an opponent.
