The ones who make it all possibleLast year we had three major sponsors: Com Hem, McDonald's and PokerStars. Today, we are delighted to announce that these three very well-known names are eager to sponsor the second season as well together with our two new friendly sponsors Estrella and Mikz. Estrella is one of the leading snack food companies in Sweden and Mikz is a new fast-growing company with an app that allows the users to make their own "mikz" of applications. Together with these five heroic companies, Fragbite are looking to make the best online tournament the internet has ever witnessed — possibly even better!
This is the Spring Season of 2014As mentioned above, this year's spring season will consist of the same amount of titles as the previous edition. Just like last year, each title will have one month dedicated to it, making the whole project three months long. The only difference is that the grand final of each title will be played in the same month as the rest of the tournament, as opposed to last year where we ended the season with a finals week for all three games combined.
Anyone can compete against the bestFor every tournament, qualifiers will be held so that anyone has the opportunity to compete against the very best in their genre. These qualifiers will be held prior to every respective main tournament to finalize the list of participants. Every qualifier will grant one spot in the main tournament, meaning you and your friends are only one successful qualifier shy of competing against world class opponents.
First off: CS:GO — Let's shoot some headshots!The first tournament in this whole event will be for the rapidly growing FPS-title Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Just like last year, the prize pool for the CS:GO tournament will contain 140 000 SEK (approximately 16,000 euro). For this sum, twelve teams will be invited to compete against each other and the winners of four qualifiers. As previously mentioned, each qualifier will grant one spot for the main tournament. The first of four qualifiers, open for everyone, will be played on Saturday the 1st of March. The teams that are directly invited to the main tournament will be announced in due time.
