CEVO is based around a PC shooters, like Counter Strike Source and 1.6 and Call of duty, where the consist of teams. Xbox 1v1 games were added not to long ago. Pretty much, you are a 1 man team.


#12

up to 108 people :slight_smile:

5 days of Reg. being open and 108 people later, keep it up everyone

Remember, this tournament will take about a month or 2 to complete, but each week 2 rounds are played out. We will probably at this rate have 8 Groups, A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H, and each group will bring 4 players to the 2 Semi Finals brackets. Then the 32 players from both Semi final bracket will bring 8 players down to the Finals Bracket. and then those 8 players play till the Grand Finals. So hopefully we can make this happen everyone :smiley:
