Think YOU are
the best gamer in the U.S.? PROVE IT!
Announcing the first annual U.S.
Gamerscore Open 2k12 (USGO)
Gamers in their respective state will compete
with each other in an elimination style tournament where ultimately the winner
from each state will compete against other state winners and become the best in
Here's how it will work:
***THIS IS AN ENDURANCE
CHALLENGE*** (You have been warned)
First, gamers will compete at the
state level, where every gamer in the competition from within a single state
will compete for 30 days. After that 30 days, the top 50% will proceed to the
next round. The bottom 50% will be eliminated. This will continue until a winner
from that state is crowned.
For example. Let's say my state of Georgia
has 30 gamers in it. The first 30 days EVERYONE competes. The top 15 gamers will
move on to the next round. The bottom 15 are eliminated. In the next round,
those 15 gamers will compete and the top 8 will move on, then the top 4, top 2.
Each round is *30* days.
Once a state winner is crowned from all
participating states, all state winners will go to the national level using the
same elimination method as mentioned above until a winner is crowned.
winner will get a retail game of their choice ($59.99 value) and of course
bragging rights for being the best gamer in the country...
*IF*, *IF*, *IF*, (did I say IF) there are 30 gamers in a single state
competing, the winner of that state will get a 1600 MS POINT card.
will be a random drawing from ALL participants for one 1600 MS POINT
There may or may not be additional prizes announced at a later

if you decide not to participate, PLEASE help me spread the word for this
This is open to gamers who live in the U.S.
only. Nothing personal. This is just how the idea came to me. I may do something
similar for you other guys at a later date and do a World Gamerscore tournament
with the winner of this tournament later.

Thunder to your house to hump your leg. Having 1 or 2 achievements showing no
date stamp due to your internet connection dropping for a short period of time
