ROCCAT backs 102 to QuakeCon 2015 (165 comments)
Posted by h8m3 @ 11:39 CDT, 9 April 2015 - iMsg
ROCCAT Studios, the Hamburg-based manufacturer of competition gaming peripherals, today announces that Team 102 headed by famous Russian Quaker Anton "CoolleR" Singov will participate in the 20th anniversary QuakeCon under the tag of Team ROCCAT.102. Team 102 announced recently that those interested in supporting them on their road to QuakeCon 2015 could do so through the crowd-funding resourced Indiegogo.

"The Russian ROCCAT team picked up on this straight away" - says Rene Korte, founder and CEO of ROCCAT, - "and without even a second thought we decided to support CoolleR and his team at QuakeCon 2015 in Dallas. CoolleR is a legendary gamer well known internationally, and we’re delighted to follow the performances of Team ROCCAT.102 at this renowned event. It’s great to see such a gaming institution continue to host such top level Quake action."

The partnership will not be limited to just a tag; most of the players on the team will also play with ROCCAT devices that they’ve picked themselves. Donators who supported the team on Indiegogo will still all receive their perks

Team ROCCAT.102 QuakeCon lineup:
Russia Anton "CoolleR" Singov
Russia Alexander "Latrommi" Dolgov
Russia Michael "421" Lozhkin
Russia Pavel "Pavel" Fomkin

There have been a lot of familiar faces popping up in North America. With all the QuakeCon hype filling the air it was bound happen! However we've still got a few months before the big LAN so there is still time to squeeze in a North American Duel Cup or two. On Sunday April 19th at 17:00 CDT it doesn't matter if you're a familiar face, an unknown, or an infamous rival or the former. You are all invited to the eighth installment of the NA DuelCup.

In the interest of time there will be a slight change to our format. The lower bracket will continue to be Best-of-One matches. The lower bracket finals (last game of the lower bracket) will be a Best-of-Three. The big change comes in the upper bracket. The first two rounds of the event will be Best-of-One. It is not until the third round that Best-of-Three is to be used. Good Luck and thank you for Quaking.
