I'd like to inform english-speaking community about amazing live-Tournament that happens in largest Russian realm. This is 2nd tournament in a row that we have launched and soon also the 3rd one is going to start. To avoid massive text of wall I'll give a link so you can watch an example of tournament games with our spectator and comments (sorry, they are russian ).
Example of games from last weekend: http://www.own3d.tv/...G#/watch/256782 (Fakeyou playing in RMP vs Spellcleave).
2 days of great games already were played on last weekend! Today (and tomorrow) we are going to see the next series of games - they start here at 16:00 Paris time. Finals will be on the next weekend. Most of participating teams got players with multi first-rank titles and are most famous gladiators in Russian community!
Tables, schedule, teams - http://www.prestige-.../tournament/wow
Tournament structure - 2 groups of 6 teams each are playing group stage (bo3), first 4 teams in each group are going to quarter-finals (bo5) and tournament turns into single-elimination system. Also, to minize the risk of failure of top1 teams in each group they have a right to make a choice of first opponent (quarter-finals) among top2-4 teams in the opposite group. It motivates teams to do their best during group stage.
Games - are played 5v5 with 3 or 4 spectators, 2 of them are commenantors and 1 is streamer that focuses on picture and viewers visual satisfaction. Games are played via Wargames, we kill spectators, then we give 45 seconds for preparings (stacking absorbs, hots e.t.c is not allowed), during that team stay in their rooms and finally game is started. Looks like real spectator mode
Currently we are planning to give a few invites for EU teams to take a part in our 3rd tournament (prize pool probably would be even bigger). Characters of any class and best gear would be given to players if we would find very good and interested EU teams. If EU teams join our tournament - english speaking commentators that are able to spectate games would be found too (it could be anyone of you too!)
Our best regards,
