Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars makes its tournament debut at QuakeCon 2007. 32teams will compete in the incredible battles between Earth’s Global DefenseForce (GDF) and the invading alien Strogg. Each 6-person team will battle itout in a double-elimination bracket-style tournament, with each team havingthe opportunity to both attack and defend. With a focus on objective andclass-based gameplay, Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars will test each team’sability to combine skill, strategy, and teamwork in tournament play like neverbefore.

This year brings a new twist to QuakeCon’s classic 1 vs. 1 competition withthe inaugural Quad Damage Tournament. Spanning all four QUAKE games, thisyear’s champion will need to be a master of a variety of weapons, maps, andplay-styles – from QUAKE’s lightening fast action and dominating rocketlauncher, to the more strategic gameplay and precision weapons found in thelater QUAKE games. 256 contestants will be divided into 4 man groups with eachplayer battling the others in a set of round-robin 1 vs 1 matches. Two phasesof round robin play will reduce the competition down to the top 32 players,who will then battle it out in a single-elimination, best of 3 bracket todetermine who is truly the QUAKE Master.
