After weeks of preparation, the day we have all been waiting for is finally upon us. The Urban Terror 5on5 TS Atlantic Cup starts tonight! This post is to help make sure everyone knows where they are going, and to update everyone on the coverages we will have tonight!
First off I want to give a big thank you to EOReality.net
for providing top quality servers for our event. Teams outside of the United States in need of a server for their match can request to use one by messaging one of our admins in #esl.urt on irc.GameSurge.net or irc.QuakeNet.org. There are a limited number of servers so it will be a first come, first serve basis.
How exactly does event work?
The 64 teams that have registered for the event have been broken down into groups of 4 teams each. You will play each of the teams in your group once and matches will take place over the next three weeks.
After which, the top two teams from each group will move on to a 32-team single elimination playoff bracket.
Groups can be found: Here
