FM CS:GO invited to WCA 2016 Beijing!
Over the years here at FM we've travelled to multiple continents for events, be it Denmark, Belgium, Spain, France or Germany in Europe or the United States for MLG. There's a couple of areas that we're yet to conquer but today we're extremely excited to announce that we've been invited to compete in Beijing, China at the WCA 2016 (World Championship Arena) in their China vs Russia vs United Kingdom event.
It's a little different in its format to tournaments you may be used to so I'll do my best to recap it for you. Over 7 days, 3 teams from each country will compete and work together to gain points as nations. Each day will see 2 countries pitted against each other in BO1 series games. The winners earning ~$2,500 and nation points for each BO1 win. Each country will play each other twice over 6 days and the 2 nations with the most points at the end of these 6 days will face each other in a BO5 on the final day. When we have further information on the technical details of this, we will update the post to let you know, but hopefully that's enough to get you going for now!
The event will run from the 12th of October to the 18th of October and all games will be played in CST (Chinese Standard Time) which is GMT+8, so 7 hours ahead of the current time in the UK. This means games will be on a little early for our fellow countrymen but hopefully some of you will be able to tune in and cheer on all 3 teams from the UK!
