CyberGamer is proud to present to you the StarCraft II CG-Live Ladder. You will now be able to participate in this event from Dandenong and from Sydney, right in the CBD actually; on George Street.

But that's not the end of it, no sir. If you were ranked the highest on the ladder at the end of the event when compared to the other local players from your particular gaming center, then you also win!

  1. All games are to be played from a participating Games Center. IP's will be tagged and checked.
  2. A minimum of 10 games must be played to qualify for prizes, an average of 1 per week.
  3. The finals will be played from your local Games Center, if you cant make the set date and time you forfeit the chance at the grand prize.
  4. A one off entry fee will be charged by each Center to join the event. The price is set individually by the centers and should be around $15-$30. You will be removed from the ladder if your fee is not paid up.
  5. Results will be announced both in the forums here and on CyberGamer StarCraft II Front page at the conclusion of the finals.
  6. Prizes will be distributed with a cheque via your local gaming Center.
  7. This is a joint effort event with the participating Gaming Centers and CyberGamer. CyberGamer is hosting the event and is responsible for the competition integrity and format throughout the season. The Gaming Centers are responsible for local conditions, prizes and entry fee's.
  8. As a participant you are responsible for your behavior both in the Gaming Center and your dealings here at CyberGamer. The rules of the Gaming Center and the CyberGamer StarCraft II rule-set are to be adhered to. Failure will result in penalties which may include removal from the event and being barred from that venue and future CyberGamer events.
  9. Read the Original Discussion thread
  10. View the CyberGamer StarCraft II Ruleset

This competition would not be possible without the effort and contribution of the Gaming Centers themselves. If your local area does not have a participating center but would like to get involved in this event then grab some mates and hit them up. If they are interested they can contact Mark from Guf with a private message.

Its not too late for any Center yet. They still have time to jump on and join. Brisbane wants to see support before they will join up, so if you want to have a venue in Brisbane, get into Elysium and sign the petition! :)

The original post about Brisbane support can be found here.

yeah, we discussed it and dandenong would be better in terms of layout of dandenong would be much better. there is alot more room for spectators. the new springvale location is squashy.

Looks good, still have to talk to someone from Arena in Adelaide though. I'll let you know when I do Zior.

Am I correct in assuming the format will be like the other CyberGamer ladders, where you challenge someone within a set range etc etc? I really dislike this format, but I guess there is no other way when the format is the way it is.

I had a lot of concerns but I'm starting to warm to the idea of this ladder - let's hope it works out well.
