BarCraftNZ aka Company of Gamers have announced their 2013 tournament season! They will be hosting 4 LANs and 4 Online Tournaments, culminating in a Grand Finals, depending on the wins and losses accumulated over the multiple tournaments.
The LANs have a confirmed prize pool of $300 for First Place, $200 for Second Place, and $100 for Third Place. They will be hosted in Auckland and more information will be revealed in the Steam Group as the tournament progresses.
The online tournaments are following a 16 team limit with a single elimination, best of three format. There will be 4 tournaments leading up to the Grand Finals, all working to accumulate Season Points for the winning teams. These points will replace physical prizes during the lead up tournaments, allowing teams to take advantage of them when those with the most season points are invited to the Play Offs.
Play Offs and Grand Finals
The Play Offs will consist of the top 8 teams in New Zealand with the highest Season Points. The top two teams will compete live in Auckland for a minimum First Prize of $500-$1000 (depending on sponsors) and a minimum Second Prize of $200 (or more depending on sponsors). The format of the tournament is still to be decided, so stay tuned.
