Starting 15GMT 20th-22nd Jan
EscapeAoE Twitch

Escape Gaming is proud to announce the Escape Gaming Masters with eight players facing off in a double elimination bracket for $3,000 in prizes.

Battle for Angkor was a great success in December, we want to continue in that vein by hosting yet another event this January. The tournament format is mostly the same but this time we will introduce new settings and see some new players step up to the plate. Once again all games will be streamed on the EscapeAoE channel.
Our top four finishers from BfA have been invited back whilst the bottom four have been invited to a new qualification bracket the day before the main event; sadly RiuT declined which means there are 5 open spots. You can sign up for the qualifiers here.

Main Event – 21st-22nd Jan (Bracket)

On 20th January we will see an eight player single elimination Bo1 qualification where the top four finishers will advance to the main event on 21st-22nd January.
