My friends and me (GriN) have been organizing tournaments for the Russian-speaking community for more than a year already. We have distributed more than 1,500$ prize pool money among tens of players. Most of the players from Russian and other Eastern European states you know from international tournaments (Russia F team, Vinchester etc) have at some point took part in Rusaoc Cups. In January we have decided to make a special celebration event for all Age of Empires 2 fans.
We would like to invite everyone to take part in the Rusaoc Cup 25 - 1x1 International Edition. It is a one-day tournament taking place on January 5 at 11:00 GMT. Players will compete for the prize pool as well as for two spots in the follow-up Year Final tournament (starting on January 6 at 11:00 GMT).
