$2,500 99Damage Arena announced

A new series of online tournaments called 99Damage Arena has been announced, each one featuring $2,500.

Powered by Dailymotion and Aoc, each 99Damage Arena cup will feature five European teams, who will face off in a King of the Hill tournament with four rounds, each one played in a best-of-three format.

The winner of the first match will get $250 and advance to the second round, where they will meet a new team a prize purse that has been increased by $250. The process is repeated until the fourth and final round, which will have $1,000 up for grabs.

The top seed of each cup get to choose the round in which they want to start: this means they can start at the very bottom and try to go all the way to get $2,500 or play just the very last match and fight for just $1,000.

In the end, the team who makes the most money in total (not necessarily the one who wins the final match) will be crowned Arena Champion and receive an invite for the following edition of the tournament.

Below you can find a picture that will help you understand how the system works:

For the first edition of the tournament, 99Damage invited German duo Planetkey Dynamics and mousesports, k1ck, CPH Wolves and FlipSid3 Tactics. Dimitrios "⁠stavros⁠" Smoilis's team got the highest seed and chose to start from round one.

Below you can see how the match-ups look like:

Match #1 Germany Planetkey vs. Portugal k1ck $250
Match #2 Winner Match #1 vs. Denmark CPH Wolves $500
Match #3 Winner Match #2 vs. Sweden Flipsid3 Tactics $750
Match #4 Winner Match #3 vs. Europe mousesports $1000

The four editions of 99Damage Arena announced so far will take place on the following dates:

  • November 24-25: 99Damage Arena #1
  • December 8-9: 99Damage Arena #2
  • December 15-16: 99Damage Arena #3
  • January 12-13: 99Damage Arena #4

they won vs mouz on eps lan and won a bo1 against cph if im not mistaken
2014-11-19 18:47
well they are obviously better than mouz (beating them in Bo3 offline and online) I would personally rank CPH higher than PkD aswell, but they are a pretty new team so I guess the ranking isnt 100% accurate at this point. We will see how they will play each other :D
2014-11-19 19:44
planetkey is a very solid team now, they won several matches vs mouz and also virtus pro

2014-11-19 21:22
"In the end, the team who makes the most money in total (not necessarily the one who wins the final match) will be crowned Arena Champion and receive an invite for the following edition of the tournament." So if any team wins round 2 and 3 they get $1250, basically giving Mousesports no chance to win the tourney and place for the new edition(except the price of course)
