The 2017 instance of QuakeCon takes place on August 24-27th in the Gaylord Texan Hotel, Dallas. There was recently some good news released with regards to community competitions
as the prize purses for a few tournaments were revealed.
QuakeCon is a classic annual event hosted by id Software in Dallas, Texas. Last year was special as we saw the 20 year anniversary QuakeWorld tournament which was a special event for the whole community, with some of the best players flying over to compete.
This year they seem to be doing something similar with the younger brother in the franchise as they're hosting a Quake II 20th anniversary duel tournament with a cash prize.
In the news released a couple days ago
one can see the following list of community (BYOC) tournaments revealed:
QUAKE II, 20th Anniversary Duel - $10,000
QUAKE LIVE 4v4 CTF - $10,000
Battle of the BYOC: DOOM 2v2 Clan Arena - $7,000
The Elder Scrolls: Legends - $5,000
QUAKE Duel - $5,000
RAGE Road Rage FFA - $5,000
We'll also have fun competitions in the latest entry of the QUAKE franchise to liven up Friday and Saturday night, and an esports qualifier that we'll have more details on soon.
This was the good news for the Quake players who have secured a ticket. The bad news for the rest is that the BYOC tickets are sold out.QuakeCon website
