Intel Extreme Masters to tour SITEX 2012, Singapore
Mark your dates, people. Come November 22nd till the 25th, for the first time ever, Singapore will be host to the Intel Extreme Masters competition as the second stop of the season. This will take place in conjucntion with SITEX, one of the most renowned consumer electronics trade shows in the South East Asian region.
The Intel Extreme Masters competition was introduced back in 2006, and has since offered a solid platform for a showcase of strong and highly-competitive players. So this November, expect crazy teamplays and deceptive tactics as players compete in StarCraft 2 and League of Legends, with a total of $82,000 for the top prize and a spot in the World Championships in Hanover, Germany next year.
Ok, i've got to say this, i'm pretty disappointed that there's not going to be any Dota 2 action.
"The tour has never been to Singapore before. It is a strategic goal for ESL and for Intel to bring eSports at the highest level to new territories every season in order to develop competitive gaming worldwide," said Michał Blicharz, the Director of Pro Gaming at Turtle Entertainment GmbH. "We are excited to see what kind of reception local fans will give to gaming superstars at SITEX 2012."
