The tournament was promoted on several esport sites and Reddit, a Digg-style site where users can promote interesting links, and at one point hit the front page, which had a massive impact on the number of viewers.
John 'ZeRo4' Hill made an appearance in the tournament, which carried a $200 prize, alongside some of America's top Quake names including Shane 'rapha' Hendrixson, Tim 'DaHanG' Fogarty and Brian 'dkt' Flander.
But the highlight of the cup didn't involve any of the top three finishers. The ridiculous series of games between 'tehnewbz' and Brad 'swooped' Olles stole the show, with a brilliant triple overtime occurring on ztn.
For those who missed the final between DaHanG and rapha, the epic game between swooped and tehnewbz or any of the second day's action, the VOD's are set for release this coming Monday on djWHEAT.tv.
