What is the CPL World Tour

Overview

The Cyberathlete Professional League®, recognized worldwide as pioneers of the professional gaming industry, presents the CPL World Tour, the largest, first-ever, year-long competitive tour spotlighting the growing new sport of video game competitions.

The ambition of the CPL World Tour is to attract mainstream-population interest to the sport of professional gaming through a series of high-exposure events hosted in selected countries around the world. A World Tour Stop will take place each month of 2005 beginning in February and will conclude with a Championship Finals Event. The combined prize purse for this Tour is $1,000,000.

The CPL has carefully selected partners in each host country and each partner will organize a World Tour Stop offering an official Painkiller tournament, a BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) LAN event, Exhibitions and other activities, including a cultural excursion for selected competitors. Some partner organizations will also host secondary tournaments for other games. Information on the event dates, tournaments, exhibitions, BYOC and cultural activities will be available on each partner’s independent website. The CPL is not responsible for these secondary tournaments.

Structure

Each World Tour Stop will accommodate 32 competitors in a one-versus-one tournament. The official computer game used in the tournaments will be Painkiller version 1.64. Competitors can secure the opportunity to compete in a World Tour Stop through one of the following methods:

  • Winning a qualifier position in an official World Tour Qualifier.
  • Placing in the top four at the Stop prior to the current Stop.
  • Registering directly while registration spaces are available.

Competitors who have not qualified for a World Tour Stop, or who are not berthed from the previous event, will still have an opportunity to compete. These competitors can register directly for a World Tour Stop. Competitors who are already qualified or berthed will be invited to attend a free cultural excursion in the host country.

Competitors may participate in as many World Tour Stops as they wish.

The top three or four competitors from each World Tour Stop will advance to the World Tour Championship Finals. If a competitor has already secured a spot in the Championship Finals through a previous World Tour Stop and takes a top four win in a subsequent World Tour Stop, the next placed player in that event will advance to the Championship Finals.

Point System

Competitors are awarded points based on their place finish as determined through prize money earned at each tour stop. The points system ties player performance at the World Tour into their seeding for future tournament and allows seeding to be known in advance for each tour stop. The points system also determines the top competitors for the entire tour based on tour performance and allows CPL to name a player of the year based on overall performance.
