With the tournament up and running, we feel that some teams are having a hard time contacting their opponent. To reduce any delays and miscommunication we've decided to extend the opening round to the 15th of march. Games will have to start by 20CET, failing to do so will result in default loss.

This doesn't mean that games have to be played at 20CET but if you manage to arrange it with your opponent for an earlier play you are able to do so, on the condition that you inform an admin by using the match ticker. find as an example here.

We stress upon the fact that the match ticker isn't used to its full possibilities and hope to see progress on this matter, if you would like to find out how to use it, check one of the former news post found here. If games aren't arranged admins will force a date and time prior to the deadline.

Make sure to update your team profile with skype, xfire, mIRC, email etc. Admins will start contacting you by these systems shortly, as will opponents.

The Corsair Vengeance Cup is also being streamed by Kaos TV and therefor we would like to stress the fact that you contact the streamers if you want your match to be streamed and casted.

Kaos TV is available on a daily basis and you can contact them ingame, add user Vinuz, KaosTVSmuggy or Kaos Enzze and arrange the time to be casted. Additionally e-mail info@kaostv.nl or use the contact form on www.kaostv.eu , you can direct anyone to http://twitch.tv/team/kaostv as the stream will be live there.

Important!

The streaming is of utmost importance to the success of this Corsair cup, i.e. we'd highly appreciate it if you could alert the streamers ahead of schedule so we can swing all social media into play for your casted matches. To make sure this is done properly, we'll be forcing all teams to check in on the match ticker 1 hour prior to the scheduled match, checking in will be done by commenting under the match ticker by both teams.
We will more and more be arranging the match date and time a day prior to the match, to reduce stress on our crew, increase the quality of the competition, and the quantity of streams and coverage.

The signups are now CLOSED.

We have decided stay with 128 teams, we'll now be going through the list of competing teams and giving priority to those who, had signed up early, and are also up-to-date with the rules, player ID's, and have contacted an admin as requested in a former news post. Teams not selected will be put as backups for round #1.

Rules
As each day goes by we get ever closer to the start of the Corsair Vengeance cup! We hope you are as excited as we are. We have had some fantastic interest in the tournament thus far with sign ups from incredible teams such as TSM, Na’Vi, MYM, SK-Gaming, Mousesports, aAa, Alternate, Absolute Legends and many many more, but its not enough! We need more teams to make this a fantastic and fun tournament so don’t be afraid, get yourselves signed up before the DEADLINE of the TUESDAY 6TH MARCH. If any of you are having any issues signing up and want to contact a member of the admin team you can either send a private message here on the site to myself (millen) or way2random, or contact either of us in the #esportsheaven irc channel on quakenet or the 'esportsheaven' chat channel in the game client.

I’d like to also take this opportunity to let people know there has been some slight updates to the rules, and every single team is asked to please read these rules (it only takes 2 minutes!) as it is vital that we have a fun and fair tournament! The most important new rule I would like to point out is due to having so many teams from around the world, WE NEED EVERY SINGLE PLAYER TO POST THEIR SUMMONER ACCOUNT NAME FOR THE EU WEST SERVER IN THEIR PLAYER ID PAGE ON YOUR WEBSITE PROFILE. Not only will this help make sure we know who is playing, but it will allow us to verify every player is indeed on the EU West servers and allow us to contact you if needed. We also urge people to idle the #esportsheaven IRC channel as this is the quickest and easiest place of contact.

Once sign ups have ended we will be asking every team to 'Check in' with us to verify your place in the tournament, but more on that in a couple of days time.

Remember to keep your eyes peeled to this website and Corsairs Facebook for fantastic give aways / tournament information as we get closer to the opening rounds.

Corsair has announced, in cooperation with Esports Heaven, their first venture into the world of League of Legends. The best part? A massive $10,000 prize purse.


After a very successful Call of Duty 4 tournament, the good people of Corsair felt the urge to provide a different game style with the same chances as their FPS-enthusiasts. So just like CoD4 we are asking everyone to spread the word, start training, start signing up and prepare for some fiercely fought matches.

This cup will again feature a maximum of 256 teams and will start off with a group stage. Throughout the group stage, Best of 1 will be played. We'll have 64 groups each having 4 teams, the top two of each group will progress into the playoffs. The playoffs will consist of 128 teams and will be double elimination.

The tournament will take place on EU-West accounts only, though the tournament is not limited to players from West Europe.
More information will soon be placed on http://vengeance-cup.corsair.com, make sure to read up on all the new content.

This website is completely linked with the Esports Heaven database. You can log in using your Esports Heaven account information and there is no need for you to create a new team or entity if you are already signed up to Esports Heaven!
