What is Cybr.com?
Cybr is a new project developed by a small group of passionate gamers from the UK. Our focus is to provide the European eSports demographic with organised gaming events and tournaments for a number of titles and game genres. The first two titles we'll be focusing on will be Starcraft 2 (RTS/Strategy) and League of Legends (MOBA), and we'll be looking to move to other genres depending on how popular our events become. Feel free to stop by, register to our forums or join our IRC and get involved in the community we're creating.
What is CybrCraft / Polaris?
CybrCraft is a new series of online tournaments for the European Starcraft 2 scene. Each event is named after a star in our known universe (homage to StarCraft) and our first event is titled Polaris, a 128 player Single Elimination tournament. We're starting relatively small, with somewhat of a tester event in Polaris. Assuming we can generate enough interest in our debut event, we'll be looking to introduce great prizes and bigger tournaments for future events.
How many players?
Starting small and simple, we're aiming to fill around 128 places for our debut event. There is no skill barrier, and applications will be accepted or rejected on application quality alone. We hope that by offering a well organised event with some great prizes (see below) we can entice passionate gamers who just want to compete against others in their favourite game on a Sunday evening.
PRIZES! WE WANT PRIZES!
If you hadn't already signed up to CybrCraft's debut Starcraft 2 open tournament, you should now! We've teamed up with industry giants TteSports and Club3D to offer our competitors some great prizes to win in our online 128 player event – Polaris. The European online Starcraft 2 competition starts July 10th, and applications close July 8th, so get registered as soon as possible to be in for a chance to win one of these great prizes!
Our first place overall winner will receive a Meka G1 Mechanical Keyboard, along with a Dasher Mouse Mat. Second place receives a Black Element Gaming Mouse and a Dasher Mouse Mat. Our third placed competitor will receive a Dasher Mouse Mat. That's around €300 in hardware prizes for our FREE to enter debut event!
I heard something about a FREE graphics card and a mouse mat signed by White-Ra?!
You heard correctly! Thanks to our generous partners we're giving away a GeForce GTX 550 Ti and a mouse mat signed by the best protoss in Europe, White-Ra! It's really easy too, all you have to do is head over to www.cybr.com/giveaway and Like our partners on facebook!
What skill will you be accepting?
We're targeting our debut event at all skills and experience. This event won't be a competition where you have to have played strategy games from the age of 2 for any hope of placing top 3. Whether you're Bronze or Masters you're welcome providing you fill out the application form the same as everyone else.
Will there be a stream?
We understand there is a huge demand for video broadcasting at the moment, but it's likely we won't be streaming our debut while we get things organised. However, if broadcasters or channels would like to stream our games, feel free to get in contact. We'll be looking to dive into broadcasting in later events, but for the moment we're keeping it clean and simple while we iron out the tournament first.
Assuming we fill all of our initial 128 places, the tournament will run over 7 rounds of single elimination matches. The event will be starting July 10th, and contuining over three Sundays on July 17th and July 24th. For an overview:
Round of: 128, 64, 32
