Team GamersLeague proudly presents Norway's very first girl-only tournament for StarCraft 2!
The tournament will take place at Sunday, the 8th of July at 19.00 CEST for a maximum of 64 female players on the European SC2 server.
Team GL is doing this to promote their own female squad, and to help increase the gaming community for female StarCraft gamers. We will stream and cast the entire event; this is a great opportunity for female gamers of all levels to get involved, and for their fans to see high level play from the community’s girls.
GLsiriuzh the manager of the female Team GL hopes that this tournament will be the first of many, to increase competitiveness of females at all levels amongst in Europe and everywhere else. She also underlines that the most important aspect of StarCraft2 is to have fun, whether you define fun as winning a tournament and taking the #1 spot in the prize pool, or as having an entertaining time playing SC2 is of course completely up to you. Therefor the female squad has decided to not only offer prizes to the winners, but also have a raffle for all participants, provided by our wonderful sponsor Mamoz!!
We will also provide a number of streams, depending on the size of the tournament, to be able to cover as many of games and give all the girls who enter the credit and fame they deserve!
StarCraft does not yet have a lot of female competitive players, it remains a highly male dominated scene, which can lead to questioning girls' abilities to compete at the highest level and create an unfriendly atmosphere. We hope that this tournament will encourage more girls to enter the casual and competitive scene, to show that it is alright for girls to have fun with games as well, and that games are not only made for guys.
The event has a quite an impressive prize pool, and even though this is hoped to not be the main attraction of the event, it certainly should not deter females from entering.
#Player Raffle: Participating players, who do not place, will all have a chance to win a 60 GB SSD.
So - do not be shy, join in the fun, watch - and even better: SIGN UP!
