Andy Ruffell / 3 years ago
Next week will see the start of “Antec Attack”, an online tournament based on Starcraft II which will run for 6 months.
Throughout the six months of this tournament, weekly cash prizes of €200 will be awarded, with the first battle going down on Wednesday 1 February, 2012 at 5pm GMT, be sure not to miss such an event as it promises a lot of action and competition.
Towards the end on Antec Attack, larger prizes will be put for reward, so be sure to play all your best moves, although save some for the Finals and Semi-Finals as they will be shoutcast by Khaldor.TV here.
The Antec Attack will be played in a “pool system” with high and low seeds until the quarter finals. Starting with the quarter-finals each round will then be played in a single elimination grid system. Pool rounds will be held in Best of one, Quarterfinals and Semifinals in Best of three mode and the Final will be best of five. Maps will be vetoed until the right set of possible maps is found.
During the tournament, the pool system will find the next available opponent automatically for the participant to minimize waiting times between the matches. A limited number of players receive high seeds in order to not eliminate each other before the final rounds. If a high seeded player loses his match, his opponent will inherit his high seed slot.
