Battlefield 4, Dota 2’s ‘The Crucial Cup’ rebrands with R33k prize

The Crucial Cup is getting a facelift and some international exposure this year, when the second edition of the tournament kicks off later this month.

In a presser issued by local distributor and sponsor Syntech, the Cup will be known as The Ballistix Masters Cup SA going forward, and feature a combined 78 Dota 2 and Battlefield 4 teams this year, up from the 67 that signed up last year.

“The Crucial Cup was launched to provide the tools and resources that gamer’s and organizers can use to promote their own team’s skill and also promote growth within the gaming community,” explains the press release.

The cup also looks to breed recognition for shout casters both new and established. This year’s tournament from the quarter final stages onwards will be shout casted by MiloshTheMedic, a well-known Battlefield 4 and Dota 2 announcer.

The tournament is organised by Stephen de Witt — captain of xTc-Black Legion — and features a cash prize of R33 000, “the biggest cash prize pool ever for an online Battlefield event in South Africa,” notes the press release.

The Ballistix Masters Cup SA will be available to stream on Twitch and YouTube Gaming closer to the time, but keep tabs on all current information on the Cup on its Facebook page.
