NVIDIA and Bethesda is sponsoring an open tournament for BRINK at this year's QuakeCon in Dallas, Texas. Designed for the regular Joe and not Mr. Pro, the single elimination tournament featured 16 five-person teams competing for the championship, $5000 in prize money and kick ass GeForce video cards.
Gameplay will continue until the Grand Final tonight at 7:40 pm. More information on scheduling and standings can be found at http://tournaments.quakecon.org.
BRINK Tournament Finals Update
Played on a brand new map, the finals played out between the top two 5 person teams- "Blight" vs. "Looking For Sponsor". In the first round, Team LFS played offense as the "Security" force and took down the "Resistance" force of Blight very quickly. When the roles were switched LFS was able to defend the objective and hold Blight off.
First place team Looking For Sponsor enjoying their well earned cash prize and GeForce GTX 480's
It was a quick final (it literally took longer to set up the machines than to play). 1st place took $3750 in cash while 2nd place took $1250. Both teams also went hoe with GeForce GTX 480's from PNY.
