A Primer on WCG 2011!

Posted: December 4, 2011 by xenocidebrm in Events, General

Last week, the grand prizes and initial matchups were announced for the World Cyber Games, a major eSports event. No Elo will be there to bring you the best WCG League news on December 10th and 11th.

In the meantime, here’s what we know. The prize pool is split between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. According to the official website, first place receives $25,000, second place gets $6,000, and third picks up $3,000.  Attending WCG from the US is team Dignitas, who will be facing teams such as MYM, Team_RageFace, iG, Siol, Team Acer, Gameburg, and Flash.lol.  The event will run from December 8th through the 12th, with matches airing from Noon to around 6 pm, KST.

So far, the only real suprise has been that MYM is bringing with them a member of IEM-winning Fnatic, a player named xPeke.  According to their website, xPeke plays mostly AP heros in solo lanes, so we should see some fantastic mid fights.

Make sure to check out the streams and coverage here, starting on Dec 8th!
