Tribes 2 World Championships Bring World's Best Action Gamers Together Online in Sport of the Future Competition Begins February 25th to Crown Earth's Top Tribes 2 Team
"Tribes 2 World Championship is an amazing example of what a strong and active game community can accomplish," said Alex Rodberg, Tribes brand manager at Sierra. "This will be a momentous event, and I cannot wait to see which country will take home the cup."
In what is quickly becoming a true "sport of the future," the road to the Tribes 2 World Championships began in September 2001, when team captains were chosen among the Tribes 2 community's best and brightest leaders. Team captains then recruited up to 30 players to represent their countries at the World Championship. In championship games, up to 16 players per team will compete head-to-head, for a total of 32 players per match, demonstrating Tribes 2's epic multiplayer online combat.
"Tribes 2's focus on team-based multiplayer combat makes it a perfect platform for a new sport and a tournament of this magnitude," said Brian "Mega Boris" Nakash of the Team Sportscast Network. "The best players know that they're not going to win unless they act like a real team. Effective plays, strategies, and communication will be the key."
The 16 teams created represent nearly the entire gaming world and include representatives from: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Scotland, Singapore, South Korean, Sweden, Taiwan, United States, and Wales.
The Championship matches will also be broadcast worldwide on the Internet via the Team Sportscast Network and the European Shoutcast Network. Interested gamers can tune in by visiting http://www.tsncentral.com/ or http://euro-shoutcast.com/.
