The first official tournament for Wargame European Escalation starts today, and there are some great prizes lined up to coax people to play (and win).
The tournament is hosted by Intel and Steam, and so some of the prizes are around Intel and Steam products. Everyone who makes it past the first match will get a game through Steam and be automatically entered into a drawing for an Ultrabook inspired by Intel (they value the notebook at $1,500, so it should be pretty good).
There will be similar prize drawings at each round, and the longer you survive the more likely you will be to win some of these drawings. There is $5,000 on the table, 4 Ultrabooks, and a bunch of other stuff including Wargame AirLand Battle VIP Beta access.
Registrations are open to everyone, and it’s free to sign up. The doors close on Nov. 15, so if you want in, go now.
