Well, here we are! When we planned out the OCS, we couldn't be sure that it would catch on. We certainly hoped that you all would enjoy a competitive online experience, but we needed to make sure that it was done responsibly and fairly from an organizational point of view. Now 6 months in, you all have exceeded any expectations that we had! With more than 45 season passes purchased, and 15-20 additional players each month, you have stated loudly and clearly that GEMP, and the OCS, are huge positives for the community, and the Advocates are grateful for your enthusiasm.OCS Announcement wrote:...the cash prizes are a baseline, and if the Qualifiers are wildly successful we may be able to increase the amount given.
Based on the quote above, we are pleased to give back! We are updating the prizing of the OCS as follows:
1st place: $500 $800 and a MAIN v-card design
2nd place: $250 $400
3rd & 4th place: $100 $200
5th through 8th place: $50 $100
9th through 16th place: $25 $50
Also, if you haven't played in an OCSQ in a while (or even if you have!), I'd recommend setting your sights on August as a good month to try it again...
