If you’re a college student who loves playing StarCraft II, this might be of interest to you.
TesPa is holding their first ever StarCraft II Archon tournament for college students in the United States and Canada. So what do you get if you win the tournaments? Students will be playing for a $50,000 scholarship prize pool. If you and a friend have what it takes to dominate the collegiate world in Archon Mode, you won’t want to miss this tournament.
For those of you who are interested, all you have to do is register on this site. After you register on the site, you will create a team and invite your Archon partner to join, if you don’t have a team you can search for uncompleted teams from your school to join. Make sure you have your college e-mail or student ID to participate. Only entries submitted before February 3 will be accepted.
Students from traditional four-year colleges and community colleges in the United States and Canada who are actively enrolled either part-time or full-time are welcome to participate. A 2.5 GPA is required to receive prizing. Additional eligibility rules can be found here.
Teams will be placed in one of four regions based on the college they are attending. Each team will play one match per week starting February 8. The main tournament season lasts seven weeks and will be followed by a week of regional playoffs before the final round. For a complete list of rules, as well as match and format details, click here.
