This first ‘regional’ event will feature the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams from the eight contracted Multi-Gaming Organizations (MGO). The teams will first play an online group stage tournament (starting 22 February) to establish seeding for the LAN event at rAge.
Attendees to the rAge event being held at GrandWest will be able to catch the LAN action live from 10am on Friday 18 March until Sunday 20 March.
Prizes and schedule for the tournament are still to be revealed.
Dota 2 teams from the MGOs can expect their turn next with a “similar event” promised (and I’m pretty willing to speculate where that discussion may head… July… CTICC…) with the main Masters event taking place in October (and at rAge).
The eight MGOs competing for the title and money are:
- Aperture Gaming
- Bravado Gaming
- CarboN eSports
- Damage Control
- Flipsid3 Tactics
- Veneration E-Sports
- White Rabbit Gaming
