ImageAbout four months ago the first Iron Squid tournament was held and played in Paris. More than 2000 Starcraft II fans came to the location to celebrate the victory of MMA. Now the second edition of the tournament has been announced!

There were quite a few months of silence around the Iron Squid but Pomf and Thud, the organisers of the event, promised a second edition and now it is time for the best of the best to play against each other once again.

Instead of 20 players there will be a total of 32 - 24 of them will be invited and 8 can qualify themselves in four offered qualifiers (one for Europe only, one for Korea only, one for North America only and one open qualifier). The qualifiers will start at October 13 and the last qualifier will be done by the end of October 21. The winner of each qualifier will also get $ 500.

When all 32 players are known they will be put into eight groups with four players in each of them. It will be a GSL style format, in which the top 2 of each group will be seeded in the final bracket. The round of 16 and the round of 8 will be held online, while the finals will take place at a venue, that has yet to be revealed, in Paris.

The invited players will be announced within the next weeks and all the qualifiers will be broadcasted on For more information check the official website or the twitter account of Iron Squid!
