World Cyber Games, Dust-Off® and the Samsung Experience
The World Cyber Games (WCG) and the Samsung Experience will host the first-ever WCG Quiver Shoot-Out presented by Dust-Off. Nearly two dozen of the best Counter-Strike 1.6 teams in the world will compete for the top-spot and a share in more than $5,000 in cash and prizes.
"The idea of the Quiver Shoot-Out was for WCG and Dust-Off, two companies who truly understand gaming, to offer the Counter-Strike 1.6 community another opportunity to compete," said Paul Brewer, Manager of Marketing and Operations for World Cyber Games USA. "Counter-Strike players are notorious for finding that competitive advantage which is precisely what Dust-Off provides to gamers, so this tournament makes quite a bit of sense."
For those who cannot attend the free event, the WCG will post Quiver Shoot-Out videos on their YouTube channel which already hosts over 1,000 videos of gaming action from the past five years. Additionally, cast members from the hit Syfy reality show WCG Ultimate Gamer will be on hand to meet the fans and cheer on their favorite Counter-Strike teams.
"As an Official Partner of the WCG, Dust-Off is proud to sponsor the first annual WCG Quiver Shoot-Out Counter-Strike 1.6 Tournament," said Ken Newman, Director of Marketing for Dust-Off. "As the WCG USA 2009 National Final nears, we want to make sure every gamer has their equipment performing at its peak. It's a proven fact that Dust-Off's line of gaming products gives gamers an advantage which will make the difference in becoming a member of TEAM USA."
The WCG Quiver Shoot-Out presented by Dust-Off is the latest in a series of events that lead up to the WCG USA 2009 National Final, which takes place September 25th-27th at the Jacob K. Javits Center in conjunction with the New York Anime Festival. The Quiver Shoot-Out is open to 20 Counter-Strike 1.6 teams.
