"The players will be fighting for a $100,000 prize in the first season."

damn that's a lot

AceOfDeath2797d ago

thats actually not true $400k is the total prize pool as seen in the trailer

I saw that in the video and I think that has to do with the total winnings along with the daily matches. In the FAQs on the website it says, "The players will be fighting for a $100,000 prize in the first season" which leads me to believe that $100,000 will be the top prize in the first main tournament

Also really nice that there is going to be a free stream

AceOfDeath2797d ago

I just saw the website as well and noticed your correct. 100k is a lot of money for sure

GrilledCheeseBook2797d ago

$400,000 over three seasons ($100k for season one, $100k for season two, $200k for season three)

That's how the winnings work

This is awesome news and a huge movement for eSports in general, especially the EXTREMELY large Starcraft fanbase outside of Korea. I truley hope this goes well for them as it could do a lot for eSports, regardless of the game.
