Teams, players, and sponsors all showed their interest and passion for Alliance of Valiant Arms during the AiC Qualifier Weekend. AiC spurred much competition within the A.V.A community for many weeks, which brought dozens of intense and heart pounding matches throughout the qualifiers.
The best teams from Europe, and North America competed in their respective qualifiers on June 14th. Those who could place Top 4 were then seeded into the 8-team AiC Playoff Qualifier on June 15th. The best games A.V.A has ever seen took place, while two teams earned their rights for a fully paid trip to compete in Taiwan for the main AiC event.
Sponsors Razer, and Aeria Games both supported the event with a large selection of prizes. Those coming first or second could look forward to a Razer Kraken Headset, 6.5k AP, and 5 in-game weapons each. Those in third had the potential to win a Razer Destructor Mousepad, while those who placed fourth would bear the Razer Messenger Bag.
All matches were caught live by CGO Media, with casting from Stoner and Ink. VoDs, and other highlights have been made available to relive the action or to catch up on any missed games. Social media support came from Rush-Zone, plenty of Facebook groups, SnowShovelAVA, KimpahAVA, and the official A.V.A FB page! A joint community effort saw the AiC Qualifier Weekend to new heights.
Over 30 teams signed up for the AiC EU Qualifier. All the top EU teams were present, and an exciting slew of matches took place.
Crackheads, and Semper Fidelity went undefeated through the qualifier. While OneH1T and PENTA eSports lost once, but managed to pull through. The definitive top 4 EU teams had qualified!
With just 10 teams registered, the AiC NA Qualifier had every match count. Get knocked down early, and you may be eliminated by the steep competition.
MonoManiac was the only team who qualified with not losing a single match. Meanwhile, Artifex, Curse, and Please all qualified after having lost at least 1 match. MonoManiac had set their standard as a clear favourite.
Day 2 had arrived and a mountain of competition was before each of the teams. Eight of the best teams were about to be put through a rigorous process to determine who gets to represent EU or NA at the AiC main event in Taiwan!
Semper Fidelity and Crackheads made short work of the competition, as they proceeded to meet each other in the WB Finals. A maniacal Bo5 series ensued with three maps ending 7-6. Crackheads had emerged victorious, with a trip to Taiwan secured.
In the Losers Bracket, PENTA eSports had been busy battling their way to the LB Finals. There, they sought revenge against Semper Fidelity who had beat them twice during the AiC Qualifier Weekend. In one of the craziest Best of 5 series A.V.A has ever witnessed, it was PENTA eSports who emerged with a 3-2 map win score.
AiC Taiwan 2014 - July 15th to July 20th
The final tally has Crackheads, and PENTA eSports heading to Taiwan to compete in the AiC 2014 main event from July 15th to July 20th. Each team will enjoy their Razer Kraken headsets, a fully paid trip to Taiwan by Aeria Games, and a chance to compete against 7 of the best international teams in Alliance of Valiant Arms! Watch the main AiC stream, or catch the English live stream on CGO Media!
