Default Calling all Euro SC2 players!

A group of motivated and very cool people called Cybr are putting together a new European eSports community and competitive platform. At first, it looks as though they'll be focusing on Starcraft 2 and League of Legends, but with time and support, who knows how far they'll grow?

To kick it off, they are looking for people to compete in their first open-to-all Starcraft 2 tournament - CybrCraft #1: Polaris. It doesn't matter about your skill level. You're free to apply no matter if you're bronze or Masters. They are deciding placements solely on application quality, so if you think it might be fun and can make the dates, PLEASE APPLY!

More details below, under this very, very awesome trailer/intro.

What is CybrCraft / Polaris?
CybrCraft is a new series of online tournaments for the European Starcraft 2 scene. Each event is named after a star in our known universe (homage to StarCraft) and our first event is titled Polaris, a 128 player Single Elimination tournament. We're starting relatively small, with somewhat of a tester event in Polaris. Assuming we can generate enough interest in our debut event, we'll be looking to introduce great prizes and bigger tournaments for future events.

How many players? Are there any prizes?
Starting small and simple, we're aiming to fill around 128 places for our debut event. There is no skill barrier, and applications will be accepted or rejected on application quality alone. We understand that with no initial prizes on offer we cannot expect the world's greatest players to participate, but we hope that by offering a well organised event we can entice passionate gamers who just want to compete against others in their favourite game on a Sunday evening. This does not mean the possibility of announcing prizes for the event later on is out of the question, we'll be looking very hard over the next 2 weeks to hopefully get something to reward our highest placing participants, but the real reward should be pride!

What skill will you be accepting?
We're targeting our debut event at all skills and experience. This event won't be a competition where you have to have played strategy games from the age of 2 for any hope of placing top 3. Whether you're Bronze or Masters you're welcome providing you fill out the application form the same as everyone else.

The dates?
Assuming we fill all of our initial 128 places, the tournament will run over 7 rounds of single elimination matches. The event will be starting July 10th, and contuining over three Sundays on July 17th and July 24th. For an overview:

Round of: 128, 64, 32
Date: Sunday, 10th July 2011
Best of 3 (From a pool of 7)
Time: 19:00, 20:00, 21:00 (BST)

Round of 16, 8, 4
Date: Sunday, 17th July 2011
Best of 5 (From a pool of 7)
Time: 19:00, 20:30, 22:00 (BST)

Round of: Grand Final
Date: Sunday 24th July 2011
Best of 7
Time: 20:00 (BST)

Looks promising Sadly, I've not played Starcraft at a decent level since Boxer ruled supreme - though I've kept up with the scene. Won't be participating, but I look forward to watching

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.
