WCG Shootout Event Today

NEW YORK CITY, New York -- The World Cyber Games Shootout event is going on in New York City today, with EG, UMX, Loaded and more in attendance.

Today, UMX, Loaded, EG, and others are in attendance in New York City at the WCG Shootout event sponsored by DustOff and Samsung for $3000 in cash and other prizes.

Evil Geniuses should be the favorites to win the event, but do not underestimate teams like Loaded and UMX.  Loaded played very well towards the end of the ESEA season and UMX was in Invite as well, though they will not be attending the Finals in Dallas, Texas.  Pugs such as sUrKaDuRk and IDK are also strong pugs and partial teams at the event as well and could make potential splashes into the top three.  Former top team DINC is also in attendance.

The rosters for each team can be found here.

The map pool is the traditional dust2, train, nuke, inferno and tuscan.  Twenty teams total are in attendance and the brackets are a double elimination format.

Watch the games live here.

Prizes for WCG Shootout:
1st place – $3,000
2nd place – 5 x Samsung Netbooks
3rd place – 5 x Samsung Monitors 

Insider eSports will update scores as they are available.
