ImageThe BLC Tournament to be held at Dreamhack Winter 2011 has just been officially announced.

While it was already rumoured for over a month, today it has been officially announced: Bloodline Champions will be featured at Dreamhack Winter 2011, sporting a prize purse of $10,000.

"Today we’re proud to present all the details about our upcoming eSports tournament in Bloodline Champions. The $10,000 tournament will be a 16-team main tournament, 12 Teams will be Invited and an additional 4 teams will qualify from the DreamHack BYOC. The two best teams will play the Grand Final at DreamArena Extreme infront of thousands in the audience and hundreds of thousands watching the livestream. Professional commentary will be provided by Auguste 'Semmler' Massonnat.

All matches will of course be broadcasted live at http://www.twitch.tv. More information and details about the on-site coverage will be presented later.

Format: 3v3 Arena
Teams: 16 (12 Invite, 4 BYOC)
BYOC Tournament format: Double Elimination
Main Tournament format: 4×4 Groupplay, Playoff single elimination
Prize Purse: 10 000 USD
1. 6000 USD
2. 3000 USD
3. 1000 USD"


The twelve invited teams will be handpicked by James "2GD" Harding himself from the list of applicants, based on relevant achievements and/or ladder rankings. Those that don't make the cut still have the chance to qualify at the event, similar to last summer. Different this time is the format of groupstages, to define the seeding in absence of qualification tourneys, and the following single elimination bracket (which is understandable due to time constraints) leaves teams even less room for error, promising some thrilling matches

The invited teams will be announced the 7th of November, and of course the tournament itself will play out from 24 to 26 November, livestreamed via Twitch.TV. Don't miss it!
