The compLexity Academy is proud to announce that it has partnered with Beyond Gaming to host another round of recruitment for its StarCraft II division. While previous tournaments were limited to players of Master rank or higher, this time around the Academy will allow anyone in Diamond and above. The Academy has also decided to remove the age limit, meaning anyone residing in North America can try their hand at joining the squad.
This recruitment tournament will last the entire month of August, with registration opening on July 29th. Sign up quickly though, the registration period will only last until August 7th. In order to register head over to BeyondGaming.com/ComplexityAcademy.
The previous Academy recruitment tournaments followed a bracket format. This time around we’ve changed things. We have shifted from a bracket format to a ladder of sorts. Each match will be a best of three. The winner of the match receives 5 points while the loser gets 1. The top four participants at the end of August will be offered a 9 month option contract with compLexity. The contract includes: a SoundBlaster Headset, a QPad compLexity mouse pad, and the chance to earn a trip to a North American LAN event.
