Babbages CPL qualifier under way
After some early setbacks, action is now underway here in London
The EuroGamer crew is now down at The Playing Fields for the Babbages-CPL UK qualifier event. Thanks to the current disruption on the British rail network I arrived at just past noon after a three hour journey (it should have taken less than half that time), but there had been delays at the venue as well. The first free-for-all started more or less on time, but then it was noticed that one of the players was missing and the game would have to be restarted. Unfortunately the wrong server seems to have been restarted, as a result of which the second free-for-all seeding group (including top player Blokey, who was about twenty frags ahead by this point) was cut short twelve minutes into the game. Everything seems to be under control now though, and the first free-for-all games are underway, although the event is an hour behind schedule now.
We'll be bringing you the final seedings in about an hour once the games are complete, but in the meantime check our coverage of the event, which includes a look at the event, the rules, the competitors, and now the scores from the first seeding free-for-alls.
