Winners of the UT4 Duel Opening Cups
Over the weekends of March 5th and 12th we saw our first tournament for UT4 Pre-Alpha on ESL, and what a turnout it was. We achieved 67 signups in Europe of which 44 players checked in and 48 signups in North America of which 36 check-ins. Our coverage of the event was kindly provided by Zaccubus and bleh- with cafe stepping in to also help out with the NA casting.
We were overwhelmed by the support from our twitch viewers and were lucky enough to see some nailbiting action throughout the course of both tournaments. If you weren’t able to tune in and watch be sure to check out the streams here.

Our winners have walked away with a goodie bag all the way from Epic Games and also were handed ESL Premium subscriptions. Our winners for each tournament were as follows:

Unreal Tournament Pre-Alpha Opening Cup Europe Winners

Unreal Tournament Pre-Alpha Opening Cup North America Winners

There were 219 matches played in total, of which 110 were played in North America and 119 in Europe cup.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for participating and tuning in to support us on twitch. We'd also like to specially thank MonsOlympus, Vlad, Loque, Xarev, cafe, Zaccubus, Flak, BlueCloud and r4Wk for their contributions. We look forward to running future cups for you with more prizes to be won!
