Today, we proudly announce Ironsight's first in-house tournament: The Gunslinger Tournament!
This tournament is being organized by us, the Game Team, for you, the Community. So polish your rifles, adjust your scopes and get ready for some of the most intense action you've seen so far!
TL;DR already? Okay, let's get the most important things out of the way - here are the basic rules:
- No drones!
- Only 1 sniper per team!
- Server: EU
- Game mode: Search and Destroy
- Teams: 8
- Players per team: 5 (+1 stand-in)
- Format: Best of 3 (BO3), Best of 5 (BO5) for the finals
Each team will also be joined by one person from the Game Team in Spectator Mode to serve as referee and/or streamer.
- Friday, August 9, 8PM CEST - First 4 Games
- Saturday, August 10, 8PM CEST - Semi-finals (2 Games)
- Saturday, August 17, 8PM CEST - Game for 3rd place (1 Game) + Finals (1 Game)
The Game Team has selected the following maps to be played on:
- BO3 and BO5: Bio Lab
- BO5 only: Airport, Mart
In addition, each team will provide one map each they would like to play on during a BO3 and BO5 game.
Do we have your attention? Splendid! Now, if you won't enter the tournament just for the fame (and subsequent bragging rights), here's what you can win:
- 1st Place: 1 Angry Monkey skin of choice + 200 CHIPS + Ironsight T-Shirt + 40,00 GP + an additional surprise!
- 2nd Place: 1 Angry Monkey skin of choice + 150 CHIPS + Ironsight T-Shirt + 40,000 GP
- 3rd Place: 1 Angry Monkey skin of choice + 100 CHIPS + Ironsight T-Shirt + 40,000 GP
- Each team that didn't make the Top 3: 40,000 GP
That's all for now, Mercenaries. We will be back next week, when we'll explain the actual process for the applications, as well as guidelines and other technicalities.
If you really want to participate in the Gunslinger Tournament, but don't have a group yet, don't worry! We've created the #PUGunslingers room on our Discord, where you can look for other players who still need a full group.
Your application must be sent in by your team captain as you can't apply only for yourself! But more on that next week. Please don't use the room for anything else. For general discussions related to the tournament, we have created the #GunslingersDen room.
Join our Discord right here!
Now, for everyone who's already on their way to the comments to ask about why we're not doing this on NA or SA: Hold your horses there for a second! We WILL absolutely make more tournaments of this sort! We've actually been planning this as a regular event, although how regular will of course depend on participation and overall satisfaction, yours as well as ours. But you can be sure there will be more chances for you to show your mettle - soon!
Good luck and a steady aim to you all!
