ACL Regionals 3 for CoD: Mw3 & Halo Reach Announced

The Australian Cyber League is proud to announce the return of Console Regionals with the ACL Regionals 3 tour. Regionals 3 will host live tournaments all over Australia for our flagship titles Halo Reach, CoD: MW3 and Starcraft 2 on PC. Console fans will get the chance to compete on LAN for their favourite games in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth to earn themselves cash, prizes and valuable ACL season points. To celebrate the ACL Regionals 3 tour ACL staff will be travelling the country to run events for you guys in almost every major city!

For those new to the Australian Cyber League, there are now 3 components to our competitions and season, each awarding points for your performance in these events.

- ACL Regionals: As announced, an open invite to compete for season points in each city.

- Online Events: An open invite for all to compete online against players in Australia & NZ.

- National Events: 4 of these in 2012. The third National Event has been announced as ACL Melbourne - Info here. These have the biggest attendance & biggest prizes.

How the circuit will work in brief:
You will earn points for every placing your team earns within the top 24 at each event you compete in during 2012. Each component of the competition has a varying weighting of points distribution. The National events are still open to all teams, but seeded by your season points.

Most likely not. We are told the monitors don't have VGA. Does your xbox have a HMDI port?

Need more then forum posts to convince us to book Adelaide at this late notice. People like yourself and other keen members would need to speak to potential attendees and gather accurate lineups and registration numbers. As per my post here: http://www.cybergame...6105083#6105083
