Thanks to 4Seasons Gaming and ArchaicMSI, Oceania will be sending it's first sponsored QuakeLive player overseas to QuakeCon this year in August. Instead of just choosing a player to send over, we have turned the opportunity into a "draft" or "qualifier" to determine once and for all who is the real 2010 Oceanic QuakeLive Dueling Champion.
The tournament will be open to everybody living in Australia or New Zealand but there will be only twelve final positions in the competition. Some of the 12 will be hand picked "wildcard" entries by 4Seasons Gaming staff, while the remaining positions will be decided through competitions in the coming weeks.

Run down: This is the largest attended BYOC Quake event in the world, features more than just Quake and gaming but also new product development and releases. Thousands of people attend, all tournaments receive video coverage and the LAN has been running for over 10 years.
On behalf of the entire 4Seasons Gaming community we would like to thank ArchaicMSI for firstly making this possible, but also our sponsors and community donaters for getting us to where we are!
ArchaicMSI is Australia's premier gaming organization. ArchaicMSI was founded late 2009 with the sole purpose of helping Australian and New Zealand players make their mark on the world of eSports; by not only helping with event organization, but providing that platform for players to perform at their very best. Since it's creation only 5 months ago, ArchaicMSI already has the leading squads in both Counter-Strike: Source and Call of Duty. In 2010 the expansion continues with the first of the professional drafting series. First up, it's Quake. Players from all over Australia and New Zealand will come together to compete in the professional draft, sponsored by 4 Seasons Gaming. Only 12 will qualify for the finals, and only one player will win. The purpose of the draft is to give the winner an esports experience; turn pro and attend the biggest Quake event of the year in Texas, USA!
Heads down, bums up, and let's get this event started!
