December will see the CPL's first World Championship taking place in Dallas, with a hundred Counter-Strike clans from around the world battling it out for their share of $150,000 in prize money. British clans will be able to earn themselves a place in the competition by taking part in a qualifier event at The Playing Fields in the depths of London on November 11th, with modest cash prizes and a free flight to Dallas up for grabs.
