When & Where
Green Forest Cafe
We have extensive history with hosting LAN events and have had huge success so far. We've focused primarily on Starcraft II and are looking to expand to League of Legends.
Our most recent large LAN tournament, the "1st Green Forest Cafe Starcraft 2 Tournament", was hailed with much success. There were 128 players battling to overcome one another, many from professional teams with highly competitive backgrounds. (Fnatic, EG, many with a prominent North American Brood War/Starcraft II background)
In addition, we had famous casters Diggity and Day casting the finals which were held on a stage where the final competitors battled for the grand prize of $1500, played in soundproof booths much like the Korean tournament stages.
In follow up to the success of that event, we've been hosting smaller weekly Starcraft II tournaments where local talents can test their skills against each other for prizes and a chance at making a name for themselves.
