New York, NY (PRWEB) May 13, 2006
Cyber Square, the leading North American video game event management and logistics service provider, announced today that it has partnered with E-Sports Entertainment (ESEA) to debut a new V2R (virtual-to-reality) e-sports tournament format at the SteelSeries New York Cup II which starts May 29th.
The V2R format will allow thirty-two (32) C-S 1.6 teams to compete in an online, single-elimination bracket using ESEA’s Tournament Mod & Anti Cheat Client. Four (4) teams will advance to an online semi-final, where the top two (2) teams win cash, plus move-on to receive top seeding in a 16-team LAN Super Final being held on June 10-11th in New York City. The remaining 14 slots at the LAN Super Final are open to teams who either got eliminated during the online qualifier, decided to forgo the online qualifier, or purchased a SuperTicket which ensures their spot in the both online and LAN events.
SteelSeries, the makers of professional video gaming mouse surfaces and headsets, will be the title sponsor of this world-premier V2R tournament format.
“Through our partnership with ESEA, Cyber Square will be the first in the world to demonstrate this e-sports competition format which allows teams to buy-back their entry into the LAN tournament should they lose in the online qualifiers”, say Edward Tomasi, Cyber Square’s director of marketing. “We are bringing together the best of online tournament management with the best of LAN-based tournament management.”
ESEA offers premium servers, industry-leading tournament management solution and the industry’s leading anti-cheat client. Combined with Cyber Square’s premium network of U.S.-based LAN gaming centers called the Cyber Square Alliance (CSA), the V2R tournament format is poised to revolutionize the way video game competitions are managed and hosted in North America.
