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

damn that's a lot

AceOfDeath4600d ago

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

GrilledCheeseBook4600d ago (Edited 4600d ago )

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

AceOfDeath4600d ago

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

GrilledCheeseBook4600d 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.

DraconicPanda4599d ago

very excited for this. This has the potential to really strengthen e-sports support and popularity in the west. april can't come fast enough

Don't really agree on Dead Space being number one. But usually come down to preference. Alot of good games on the list. I was hoping to see Aliens vs Predator by Sierra on the list, as it was a great game. Anyways for me the number one is still Halo but Mass Effect was really good up to the infamous ending of the third game.

Rebel_Scum930d ago

I would put Flashback on my list. Its got such a great tone and background design. The cutscenes were pretty good too.

DEAD SPACE 2 as number 1? Really? I've only ever played DEAD SPACE 1 (without finishing it) and, sure enough I liked it a lot, and have been yearning for getting to grips with an hd remastered trilogy for the PS4/XBox One/PS5/XBox Series X/S, but what about Deus Ex Human Revolution & Mankind Divided? Alienation (to quench our thirst for twitching fingers' top-down dual-stick shooters)? Or even Cyberpunk 2077 (once the game has been re-released and all the kinks have been ironed out)?

If not at the #1 spot, it seems to me these games deserved to be on the list somewhere.

But what really strikes me as unfair is, if you're going back to the PS3/XBox 360 era with DS2, how could you forget to mention Killzone 2 & 3? The Resistance games? When it comes to Sci-Fi FPS, it's inadequate not to pay your respects to those stellar franchises! Heck, even the Crysis trilogy should've been there IMHO.

Make a warcraft rts clone and I'll buy it.

karlmarblazehorn1070d ago

Wonder which people would want though, the 2D ones or 3D like warcraft 3.

phoenixwing1070d ago

I'm not picky either one is up to them

Gaming4Life19811070d ago

Warcraft 2 was my favorite warcraft and im probably in the minority but i love that game.

Ristul1070d ago

Cant wait to see what they make, Blizzard had its peak a long time ago imo.

RedDevils1070d ago (Edited 1070d ago )

Kinda sad not many big publishers interest in RTS like good early 2000s. Only MS is doing Age of Empires, while games like C&C or empire earth seem to be forgotten.

Vegamyster1070d ago

C&C just had a remaster of the first two games and apparently it sold very good, I’d expect either more remasters and potentially a new game.
