Intel Extreme Masters Pro/Am Challenge
Qualify for Intel Extreme Masters Pro/Am Challenge
Our very first Intel Extreme Masters Pro/Am Challenge will take place on the GamesCom fair in Cologne on the 21st of August. There eight players will have the chance to win $1.000 and to win one of the first Quake Live live event tournaments. As preparation for that event we will have two qualification cups, in each of them you can win a spot for the final tournament on GamesCom. The last four spots for the tournament will be awarded to the first four sign ups on our booth.

Intel Extreme Masters Pro/Am Challenge

The Quake Live Intel Extreme Masters Pro/Am Challenge will be played on Friday, 21st August while we will keep the Grand Final for Saturday, 22nd August. The winner of the tournament will also take home $1.000. The grand final will be shown live on stage and on ESL TV.

A total of eight players will take part in the tournament, four players will come from the online qualification cups and four players can sign up directly at the fair. The sign up will be located on our booth, the ESL Intel Gamezone, there will be an event login computer. The first four players to sign up there will be invited to take part in the tournament, if they can’t be reached at the start of the tournament, the next signed up player will be invited. Sign up will start with open-doors on Friday, the second public visitors’ day.

Qualification Cups

There will be two qualification cups, both will be single elimination and best-of-three. The top two of each cup will be qualified for the Intel Extreme Masters Pro/Am Challenge on Gamescom. Due the lack of time, both cups are scheduled to be played completely on one day.

Nice! A bit random with first 4 that sign up at the event to get a spot :( Also I don't think anyone would like T6 to be in map list since it's removed from all other tournaments. I don't want to sound negative so, big thanks! :D
yeah, remove t6, its a 2v2 map :)

rest rawks i guess :P
t6 is removed.
can u signup for both?
giving all the money to the first place finisher is not very good imo. 700, 200, 100 to the top 3 would be more fair.
fantastic news
