What better way to launch your new service that allows players to manage and compete in their own tournaments with cash prizes than to set up eight tournaments with £40,000 up for grabs? It ought to reel in the punters.
Plus, that £40,000, it's a minimum. Jowst are still searching out sponsors and with each new name more money is added to the pot.
Details on how to compete are after the break.
So, which are the eight games to compete in?
- League of Legends
- Starcraft 2
- Dota 2
- Call of Duty Black Ops 2
- Guild Wars 2
- Medal of Honor: Warfighter
Each of the games is accepting a pretty huge number of competitors, each tournament will feature 128 teams. That is, except for Starcraft 2 which will have 256 individual players fighting it out. Although the final round is a double elimination, the early rounds are group stages so you're going to be able to take part in at least a couple of games.
You can register for the Jowst service now, though signups for the tournament won't begin until November. It's also worth noting that when the tournament kicks off there will be a charge to compete. It's described as a "minimal entrance fee per team".
