Pro-Gaming Comes to the Dome!

, the Korean online gaming organisation announced today their first foray into pro-gaming in the UK kicking off with a big money tournament to be held at the Millenium Dome. The tournament is intended to promote the British Internet Game League, an on-line ranking system similar to the Korean and American versions already launched.

According to the (currently broken) sign-up page the games supported will be the pro-gaming mainstays Quake III: Arena and Unreal Tournament, as well as Age of Empires II and FIFA 2000. Bizarrely, a Tekken Tag competition will also take place there, presumably for those poor people without PCs. The total prize fund for the tournament is a whopping £15,000, and the event is being sponsored by Barrysworld and Samsung. In addition to the filthy lucre, first prize winners will be flown to the World Cyber Game Challenge to be held in Seoul, Korea on the 15th of October.
