COH2.ORG Proudly Presents
OPERATION CHARLIE FOX
A Crowd-Funded 1v1 Tournament
Powered by You!
Do you remember the epic clashes we had during the Dr. Wachs $1000 Tourney in December of last year? Have you ever forgotten the awesome weeks of the last Sunday Night Fights event? Do you still feel the heat of the recent Star Crossed Cups and the Star Crossed Kings tourneys? Do you want to feel all of that again? We, the Staff of COH2.ORG, want to give you all the tension and heat back, and even get you involved into the process of making this awesome tourney happen. We are going to attempt our first ever totally crowd-funded COH2.ORG event. We hope that you will help us make it great.
This tourney is open to everyone. It will begin with an Open Qualifier, one week prior to the Main Event, where players will compete in a single-elimination bracket until only 8 players remain. Those 8 players will move on to join 4 invited players in the Main Event; a double-elimination tournament, divided into 3 days, Saturday to Monday, to crown the champion. All matches in the Main Event will be Best-of-3, except the Grand Finals, which will be Best-of-5. The Winner's Bracket Finals will take place on Sunday night. The Loser's Bracket Finals and Grand Finals will be played on Monday night. Check out the Brackets Poster:
The prizes for this tourney depend on how much money you lovely folks are willing to contribute. Here is a breakdown of how the Prize Pool will be split up amongst the top 6 players:
- 1st Place: 50% of the Prize Pool
- 2nd Place: 25%
- 3rd Place: 12%
- 4th Place: 7%
- 5th/6th Place: 3% each
A special #COCOJAMBOAWARD of $50 will be given to the player who uses the most inventive, non-meta strategy in a game during the second weekend, provided by SturmTigerGaddafi.
