Gameshrine is proud to present the New Year's EU draft tournament! Everyone is welcome to come along and be part of the fun and to win some of the awesome prizes Hi-Rez have laid out for us, for both players (with special prizes for new players) and viewers alike.
We've learned from the previous one and have a few changes to the line-up:
- Sign-ups will happen on the day, so we know that everyone will be there!
- The first games for the tournament will be much later in the day, starting from 5pm CET.
- This first half will be round-robin style competition, with each team getting at least 3 games.
- The second half will be single-elimination knockout, using the top teams from each division.
We probed the caster community to make sure everyone got their 15 minutes, we have interest* from both EU and US casters, including DocMatrix, Grimble, DocLettuce, Greth and Stow, ZeroMethanol and JesterLogic, DodgePong, Sadokist and the guys over an IBN.
The schedule is as follows (all times CET):
- Noon: Sign-Up Open
- 4pm: Sign-Up Close
- 4pm: Picking Start
- 5pm: First Game (may be closer to 5:30?!)
- 7pm: Second Game
- 9pm: Third Game
- 5pm: Round of 8
- 7pm: Semi-Final
- 9pm: Final
