IOS announces $10,000 tournament

Inferno Online has in cooperation with Intel announced a $10,000 winner takes all tournament in its Stockholm location on May 12.

In celebration of the third generation Intel Core processors, Intel has teamed up with Inferno Online to host a $10,000 3rd Generation Intel Core Challenge by Inferno Online tournament at Stockholm E-Sport Arena.

Four teams have been invited directly for this tournament, while another four teams will be determined via two online qualifiers and another two via LAN qualifiers at Inferno Online.

The four invited teams for the 3rd Generation Intel Core Challenge by Inferno Online are:

Sweden SK Gaming Poland ESC Gaming
Sweden fnatic Finland WinFakt

Online qualifiers for the tournament will take place Wednesday May 2 and Sunday May 6. LAN qualifiers, which will take place at Inferno Online in Stockholm, will be played Thursday May 10 and Friday May 11.

Teams wanting to signup for the qualifiers can do so by following the links below.

Online qualifier, May 2 Click here
Online qualifier, May 6 Click here
LAN qualifier, May 10 Click here
LAN qualifier, May 11 Click here

The four invited teams will then be paired with the four teams found via qualifiers, for the tournament on May 12 at Stockholm E-Sport Arena, an extension to Inferno Online's Stockholm facility.

The eight teams will be divided in two groups of four teams, playing best-of-one map, with top two teams advancing to the playoffs. Playoffs will be played best-of-three maps in a single-elimination bracket.

The winning team will walk away with the $10,000 prize purse, with no additional prizes for runners-up.

On April 30, Inferno Online will open a designated area for the new Intel processors, named the Ivy Bridge Corner. The area will have sixteen computers featuring the new processors, which visitors will be able to test for free, starting April 30 and lasting two weeks.

HLTV.org will be on-site in Stockholm to provide you with full coverage of the
3rd Generation Intel Core Challenge by Inferno Online.

wow, awesome!

"The eight teams will be divided in two groups of four teams, playing best-of-one map, with top two teams advancing to the playoffs. Playoffs will be played best-of-three maps in a single-elimination bracket." come oooon, that's a small tournament which will probably feature all the best teams around the world (i'm hoping for M5 Na'Vi, + two out of Xapso/ex-Lions/ex-eSahara/Anexis), give us Best Of Three on the groupstage !

Orgs invited Na`Vi for sure, but they won't go, cuz they are going to Skopje (CS Masters Cup).
2012-04-24 15:34
Sad, but they are going to visit other event.
2012-04-24 15:35
Nice payday, but why not $7,000 to 1st and $3,000 to 2nd? It's hard to dispute a final and not receive a single cent. Then again, it's a one day event (assuming one of the top teams will win it). Good luck all.
2012-04-24 15:17
Nice to see so many tournaments, but they seem smaller and like one time promotions of something. But what matters is that money is pumped in 1.6.

You may wonder which name could also get a slot via the online quallifiers, well for the first online quallifier, the one on 2'nd of May, the team list contains names such as Russia fbGaming, Denmark Wikipediots, duality, escalate, Germany DkH.Gaming, Denmark Anexis, Norway alchemists, France JaS, Germany Alternate.ATTAX and many more, the list is yet to be complete, so expect other big names to line up at the start.
