Oceania Esports Masters Announcement
Introduction

Esports in Oceania continues to grow beyond expectations and CyberGamer is proud to be a large part of that growth. With the expansion of esports in the region, the time has come for an event that represents that growth and that event is the Oceania Esports Masters.

Held over the weekend of the 20th and 21st of August 2016, the first Esports Masters will feature two titles (CS:GO and SMITE) at Australia Technology Park Sydney. 4 teams in both titles will battle out for a hefty purse and the title of Oceania Esports Masters.



Titles

Counter Strike Global Offensive
No esports event would be complete without CS:GO. One of the most competitive esports titles in Oceania, CS:GO will be present at the inaugural Oceania Esports Masters. 4 teams who will qualify through the online CGp league will fight for the right to call themselves the Oceania Esports Masters of CS:GO.



Smite
After a heart-stopping Split 1 Finals, Oceanic SMITE continues into Split 2 and will be headling the Oceania Esports Masters. With the competition being closer than ever before, 4 teams will battle it out over 2 days to decide who will claim the lions share of $25,000 and more importantly determine who is the best in OCE. All your 2016 OCE SMITE info can be found HERE.



Dates & Venue

The Oceania Esports Masters will be on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21th August 2016. SMITE will be the first title on display on both days with CS:GO following in the afternoon/evening.

The Oceania Esports Masters will be hosted at Australian Technology Park in Sydney, just 5 minutes from the CBD in theatre room 6b.

bo3 single elim?

Quote from zudmeister on the 2nd of July 2016


Yer we thought we would use LAN finals as LAN finals. Not day one a mini season and day 2 finals. Semi and Grand finals have always been Bo3 single elim at all our LAN events since 2013.

But the last 2 seasons we have ran 12 team Div1, played for 5-8 weeks , then we invite 70% of teams to LAN and end up using 9-11 teams out of the 12 to make up numbers due to drop outs etc. Last season we invited 11th place, Pax it was some where around the 8th best team. then we have two groups which are round robin ( essentially having another full season on day 1) to find the top 4 to play day 2. The model doesn't work. I think last season team with 1 win made it to LAN. Going to LAN should be a reward and only the best teams, and inviting 8/12 teams is not a reward. Making the teams have more value on the season for a 30% chance at LAN has a lot more value.

Of course not, players always have to bring their own keyboard and mice as often teams are sponsored any way and have their own equipment.

Really nice to see that CG was able to get a LAN final up and running for this season after online only was looking like the outcome. Great work guys.

Inviting less teams to play LAN is bad for the community no matter what way you spin it. People need to get it through their heads that all these big competitions overseas are on LAN and it is completely different to online, less players with high level LAN experience isn't good no matter what.

Then again I personally think a bigger division 1 (16 teams?) with a larger LAN finals is a way better format for growing the community. If i had my way we would be having 16 team "nationals".

However, I understand there is time constraints may be the reason behind a lower team LAN.

Yea what Jaytee said.

The more you can get to LAN the better. Doesnt matter how or why. Hell you could run an online season just to fund the LAN. The people playing 'care' about the prizemoney because its up for grabs, but next to no one is actually playing for money.

Its not such a bad model to have a mini season on LAN because its essentially a different ball park. But your points are valid in that its not a look for a league in isolation to have a H&A season only to do it all again in finals. hope that makes sense.

@jaytee have to remember that these are finals as opposed to being a national event. Anything like 16 teams would have to be a standalone event.

Yeah fair point @defcoN

I still believe you guys had it right in the first season of CGPL with the 16 team division 1 and 8 team LAN finals. That's the best format for growth at the top level.
It takes a bit of the "shine" of being div1 but really only hurts some idiots egos and nothing else.

@jaytee way too many teams died when it was 16 teams in one group.
