Something big is coming up...

Posted Image


We're proud to announce that together with help from Curse and Alienware we're going to be running our first ever Arena Junkies Invitational Tournament, featuring eight of the best World of Warcraft 3v3 teams. These players will battle it out for glory and yet to be announced, but surely impressive prizes.

The Teams:
When we were selecting the teams for this tournament, we wanted no one but the best, and we wanted as many different comps represented as possible. We've got a bunch of fan favorites with strong proven track records of tournament excellence and a couple of new faces who've never had a chance to shine in a tournament setting but have been tearing it up on the ladders over and over again. Take a look at who is going to be playing:
  • Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image   Massives - Filovirus - Thingtwo
  • Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image   Venruki - Snutz - Kollektiv
  • Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image   Vanguards - Mes - Sodahs
  • Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image   Merkx - Kurum - Selketh
  • Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image   Khuna - Xandyn - Zunniyaki
  • Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image   Talbadar - Azael - Cdewz
  • Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image   Ayume - Tosan - Metaphors
  • Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image   Kpul - Guisepee - Hexpert
Format:
  • The eight teams will be broken into two groups of four and will play in a Round Robin format. The top two teams from each group will advance to face each other and vie for the spot in the Finals, while the other four teams go home.
Schedule:
  • Round Robin - May 19th & 20th, 3 PM EST
  • Finals - May 26th, 3 PM EST
Casters:
  • Isaac "Azael" Cummings-Bentley.
  • More to be announced soon!
Where: More details about prizes, tournament rules is coming soon!

Be sure to follow ArenaJunkies on Facebook, and give Alienware some love as well.

I find this tournament an excellent idea but you should really change the setups - 6 out of 8 teams have a shaman + if they are the best every one of them can multi-class for sure - and  balance EU & US teams. . In addition, khune-xandyn-zunniyaki is perhaps the best EU team atm, but it's getting really boring having them as the only team from EU explicitly invited in every tournament without giving other, competent teams a chance. And please increase the teams from 8 to 16 for variety and more entertainment. Thank you.

Cant fight fotm man, and Khuna's team seems to be the only one who want to play in the american tournaments, them and Braindeadly maybe. I wouldn't wanna play in a tournament for prizes like that knowing Im going have a disadventage straight from the start with slacky MS.

Tell me how they shall do that. I do not know many Europeans that actually own a US Account and additionaly have an Arena Pass on it. They can't balance it if there are no Europeans up to pay 50+bucks (each player) to participate at this tournament. You prolly didn't think about it before you wrote it.

No I thought they could hold 2 different tournaments one in the US and one in the EU and then arrange for matches between the winning teams - hell that +50 ms must be so encumbering. And 50 euros must be a huge amount compared to the potential prize pool indeed. There are tons of solutions, but hell - you prolly didn't think of it enough before you responded.

Why would they host two different Tournament? Don't you think there is a reason why the Tournaments are hosted in the US?
