QWC to Crown True Quake Champions at QuakeCon 2017

$1 million is up for grabs as one of the highlights of QuakeCon's annual festivities. 


OK, Quake fans. Be prepared to get your Twitch on this weekend if you can't be at QuakeCon 2017 this weekend, as the $1 million Quake World Championships will kick off its finals in a quest to be crowned champions of Quake Champions.

Forty Duel competitors and eight Sacrifice teams have been practicing for the last few months, and made it through the qualifiers to land spots in the finals. The showcase will be Quake Champions, but there will be other tournaments for Quake Live. It will be a veritable Quakegasm of activity, and as a site found as Quakeholio, Shacknews will be all over it like Ranger on a rocket launcher.

If you aren't attending QuakeCon, you will be able to watch all the action on the Quake Champions official Twitch channel starting tomorrow. AMD has joined forces with Bethesda to sponsor the tournament.

Quake Champions entered Early Access on Steam yesterday, so you can hone your skills a bit while you watch. Maybe next year, it will be you up there.
