WEBZEN Inc. (WWW.WEBZEN.COM), the Next Generation of Free-to-Play Online Games, announced the finale of the Tournament Registration Test for their Action RPG ‘C9 (Continent of the Ninth Seal)’ and has begun preparation for the first Global PVP Tournament.
Last May 6th, the C9 Tournament Registration Test had come to an end after a month of non-stop action. To continue action, registration for the online tournament has started and will continue until May 9th (PDT).
The online tournament that starts on May 16th (PDT) will determine the final top 2 qualifying teams that will head on to Los Angeles, U.S.A. where the first official offline tournament finals will be held. Only one team will be victorious and win a grand prize of $10,000 (USD).
Currently among the registrations, there are many teams with diverse backgrounds. Some have experience in other competitive tournaments, while others are e-sports teams from ESL, or guilds from other well-known MMORPGs, masters of action games, and more. However, all have one thing in common; the goal to win the final grand prize.
Jihun Lee, Head of Global Publishing, said, “During the 2012 C9 Championship Final, the producer and developers of C9 will join us to add to the excitement.” Also he said, “We hope to see many participants for online tournament that will build the excitement for the finals in June.
