ET Masters by Impact and Crossfire

The deadline for the 500 € tournament is nearing to a close. With 138 sign ups so far, we are almost at the threshold of teams we need to offer a great tournament.

Target: 144 Teams!

The Qualifier and Invites
16 Teams will fight it out to get one of the 4 remaining spots to have a chance to get their hands on the prize money in the major division. The tournament will start Sunday and run through to Tuesday with a double elimination bracket.
We offer 28 Teams the chance to play in the very top division. Our seedings will be very tight and therefore we need you to tell us if your team is now inactive or does not want to participate in the ET Masters Season 2 anymore. We will definitely not allow teams (including a major part of their players probably) back for a 3rd season if they can't prove their stability in this tournament.

The Second Division
With groups of 8 Teams and hopefully 128 teams participating, it will be a major league with relegation games and a long term tournament with 1 match each week. Every team has the chance to qualify for the playoffs and two or three lost matches won't destroy your chances. Reach the Top 4 and keep playing till the end for your own good!

The Captains
Every team will need a responsible person to be available in our channel #etmasters on quakenet. Contact chosen, eVo or Adacore in this channel and tell us the team captain for your team.

The Rules
Detailed rules will be published on Thursday. Major stuff: No player will be allowed to play for more than one team and everyone playing needs to insert his current PB GUID to his crossfire profile. Every player who wants to play with your team in this cup must be in your crossfire team for atleast 24 hours.

Last map
Every team not competing in the opening match or participating in the qualifiers can participate in our map finding tournament which we probably will announce on Sunday. Most votes gone for Adlernest, Braundorf, Frostbite and Oasis.image: cc6_etm

nice work guys :)
great layout chosen
what about
Awesome, hf guys!

no really nice work :)
Nice sarcasm!
Pretty much work for the layout, I'd suppose :) Looks great though. Also nice to hear about ETAce to be used. The prizemoney is also enough for an online tournament. Now CB needs to come up with something more to attract the teams ;) Really looking foward to that!
as if they care ;D oh noes crossfire is hosting a tournament which is more appealing to players than our eurocup :O((((((

(and before u comment i assure you, no they dont :P)

so i cannot say im looking forward to the same thing.. i think i'm going home to my moms tomorrow as she's not at home and i'll take a steaming warm bath i
m looking forward to that for sure
I'm looking forward to the event ;) But could be understand the way you did. My fault ^^
nice job evo & chosen
nice one!
nice job :) looking forward for the cup :D
cu @ div1

nice job guys, thumbs up!
Nice work Chosen. The layout pwns
omg that layout makes me horny , really nice!
Lol ET is dead lol.
i heard et qpad cup had price money too
:D this will be paid out at lan in cash as was ET Masters season I
hope so! ;Þ

it always sux if leagues/tournaments promise prices such as esl and this qcup did *and cb ofc
oki, i defintly dont know when this happened with the esl, so just give me details and i will figure it out
far from details, who's the responsible team captain, who sent the bank account details and when?
night sent the bankdetails in october or smth
the one, who gave us his bank account details, has received a mail at the end of november. just tell him to check his email account and you know more.

about esl: you will get the money, we have always paid, feel free to contact any of the teams and players in the 100s (maybe a thousand? or thousands) of prize winning tournaments we have ran in the last 10 years. that's why we have a good reputation in contrast to clanbase and so on :)
you delayed it for 2 months 2 times already, its hard to believe that there is still something incoming
what did we? 2 times? i think the mail said something else..

feel free to contact me in - should be the better place to talk about it
according to the mail u have to wait until march, just do that - ill be on it from 1st march than
first we had to wait until end of october, then end of december and now end of march -_^
ah yes, forgot about that money :D
been ages already
prolly thats why they never pay it within 2 weeks after the event. cuz they want people to forget about it!
fucking fast reply lol

how much money was it?
and what if a clan isn't coming to cc6 which won some prizemoney ?
its a lan final so could be a bit of an issue
nice! But what happened to etace for so long time? We all signed petition and bani answered and thats all I know.. hope its still developing and can be add to ETpro
wow nice, layout looks well nice too
The fucking tables don't fucking work !!!
You're gonna have to give me a tutorial some day :d
haha, get your inet working btw :P?
nice, gl
any star to watch?
etace best have full linux support :)

should be a good cup
awesomeness :O :D
i like the layout, whats in the message idc, but i like the layout, rly. gj.
et is alive retard! gj!
looking forward
I thought that in 'tournament details' was a hidden message with first bold letter :<<<

im sad now

TT1ETTTIMMAMD ehm.... interesting!
dont you have a title to defend :P where is your signup :P
Nice work :)
fkin nice!!!
nice will be watching this :)
awesome :)

etace = $$$
new version, nothing todo with etpub anymore
Nice effort.
gj chosen :)
Nice but only for good teams :<
ekhem... wheres k1ck?
Nice . Awesome 1 :D
great job guys =) signed up snb!
gl in 2nd division my friend <3

j/k cu
looking forward already :-P
awesome! :)
Yeah, competition is like that
I mean with that, i want the money but i can't win this shit.
i read it that way that you want a cup where the winner of each "skill level" is able to win money prices - that would be actually a good idea - more divisions and for each division a separate price money so its a motivation for every skill level :)
well youd have to give high skilled divisions more money imo and seeing the fact that its nearly impossible to raise much money you can barely split the pot cause then every1 would get like 5 euro which wouldnt even cover the transfer fee ... :d but hey its a free game! CS costs 5 euro nowadays and still they get like 298753985739475 trillion dollars a year :< stupid popularity bonus making commercial more effective and pumping in money... actually i think that ET has way too little community sites and way to little promotion :/ if there would be more "known" clans with ET squads youd have way more news on those clansites and therefor way more people reading those news, including people who dont even know ET or atleast dont play it which would impact the ET scene by a few more players (implementing more hackers as well but :<) therefor also getting more interesting for big companys to start investing in this game.

dont look at me as you can see here i suck at writing :D so i wont be able to put up news onto any sites at all but maybe some people are.. that would be a good start to keep ET alive or even make it grow

just my 2 cents :P

edit: this is also confirmed by the time "back then" clans like ocrana and plan-b were well known in the european/world gaming scene and had ET teams there were way more players -> way more activity nowadays we got H2k and "mamut" seeing that mamut (afaik) is not as well known across more games then cod4/ET (like H2K) there is no real news about ET on big clansites imagine mouz and shroet had an ET team there would be news regarding that team/the et scene/et itself on those sites being read by waaaaaaaay more people then those few stumbling across mamut f.e. : /
and since its a free game people would likely be more attracted to testing it rather then buying it even though its old^_°

edit 2: lol'd at seeing what i wrote .. couldve made a column instead :D
Rly nice cup
very nice, good luck all!
allready 50 signups? keep up the good work chosen :)
nice ! :)

I still need team !
need team !
\o/ wij doen ook gewoon mee ofwa? nice. 8)

diversus is there :)
inactive, not participating, h2k
nice work, nice pricemoney! should do this more
omg noob cup! ;ds
Shut up just cause the best you could do in it was 2nd place :P
65 teams - last update on 19/01/17 at 11.35 CET :D
nice initiative though :o
I like the way cf is finally taking over the job cb has been neglecting for way too long ;d
Crossfire isn't taking over anything, this is the second series of ET Masters originally brought to you by Impact Gaming and now supported by both Impact and Crossfire to bring you a second series of the event, a joint initiative as opposed to 2 seperate events
At first cf would be hosting a cup & Impact gaming would be doing the same, so cf took initiative by organising their own cup... (which to me seemed very similar to the clanbase open cup which is also divided in divisions etc. only a bit longer)

I didn't mean to offend Impact Gaming ;d I know that this is the second Et Masters tournament & I think it's great these 2 organisations are working together and meanwhile keeping et alive.

Although I'd like to make 1 remark:
Impact gaming brings in the money. Crossfire takes care of publicity, but wouldn't they've done just the same when there was no joint venture between I & Cf ? At the moment, it seems to me like the crossfire cup has just disappeared, what is cf adding to the cup that Impact couldn't have taken care of by themselves?

nvm just read about the lan final ;d
The LAN final was organised for ET Masters irrelevant of the Crossfire cup however Impact was only offering a 300euro prize fund, by pooling our resources with crossfire we have come up with a unified offering of 500 euros + servers from YCN, myself and chosen are both working to bring in some further hardware sponsors also. This is now a totally joint venture as we try to bring the best possible tournament we can to the game, this is also in no way seen as a competitor to any other tournament, its just our own, simple as.

What are the odds of having the name changed to 'Frop's ET Masters' if I sponsor another 500 euros? This donation would obviously buy me out of any administrative functions during said tournament (apart from cutting ribbons, congratulating the winners and being a particularly sexy spokesperson).
money speaks! GL
you can give it a try :)
need team. can play serious. msg me !
Zero Empathy !
Europe not Israel alvi lol :p
The winners will get paid bar on the next crossfire LAN event.

thats worth more than all the prizemoney?
The winners will get paid at the bar on the next crossfire LAN event.

Of course it is :D
what is ESL TV account?
what's difference between a ESL premium account and a "normal" account?
you can only see your esl awards if you have a premium acc for example :p
lol what a nice prize.. I always wanted that
if u r esports addicted, u can tune in esl tv, if u dont care about the prize, its an addition
I already realised that my dear :p just wanted to know what that is ;)
was not really meant to be serious
