BioWare will be hosting an Operation Victory Tournament with ESL gaming for 8m storymode operation speed runs for Shadow of Revan.
Operation Victory Tournament – Coming Soon | 02.23.2015, 04:30 PM
BioWare is partnering with ESL to host our first ever “Operation Victory” tournament. It is a contest to “speedrun” our 8-man story mode Operations from Shadow of Revan. We wanted to give you about a week’s notice so you have time to get your teams together and establish your strategies.
We will announce all of the details within the next week but here are some of the key pieces of information:
- The competition will be team based and all Operations run will be 8-man story mode
- The qualifying heat will be one week – starting next Tuesday
- The entire tournament will run over a few weeks with you submitting your timed runs to ESL
- The best teams of the qualifying round will advance to the final round – winners based on details we’ll provide
- There are some serious rewards up for grabs including, but not limited to, cash prizes for the top two teams, in-game items, and even a trip to be our guest at STAR WARS: Celebration!
Look for another post within the next week detailing everything about the contest. I know many of you will be showcasing your practice, and real runs, on Twitch. I will make a separate thread closer to contest where you can post your twitch channels along with dates/times! I am looking forward to seeing all of the great Operations runs.
Never thought I’d see SWTOR enter the esport realm. I’ve seen people complaining that it’s not PvP. But I think it’s good they’re doing a PvE one first to test the waters. Depending on how successful this one is, they may do a PvP one in future. So the potential is there. Hopefully this tournament works out well.
