    NHLGamers,

    The IS Cup has become a tradition and with us stepping into uncharted territory and ramping it up on the 6vs6-side last year, we're now bringing the same, improved concept for the 4th iteration of one of the biggest NHL esports tournaments of the year. IS Cup 4 is presented by NHLGamer and Ilta-Sanomat, sponsored by PlayStation, Prisma Gaming and Alpro.

    Originally a Finnish tournament, IS Cup breaks new ground with its 4th iteration; expanding the scope of the tournament in allowing all European teams entry to challenge the Finns for the throne. In NHL19 we saw Finnish HAVU Gaming and FILADELPHIA dominate the playing field, but it'll remain to be seen if we can find some new competition this year.

    The 4th iteration of IS Cup will alike last year, cap off at GameXpo in Helsinki, Finland between the 15th and 16th of November. In the final event, the four best teams will meet to battle it out for a prize pool of 5000 €. 

     

    Schedule of IS Cup 4:
    Group stage 14-20.10
    Playoffs 28.10-6.11
    Semi-finals & Finals @ GameXpo 15-16.11

     

    The prize pool will be divided as follows:
    1. 3500€
    2. 1000€
    3. 500€

    Prizes are subject to tax as per Finnish law and the tax is withheld before payment

     

    Please note:

    • Both the group stage phase and the playoffs will be very intensive and your team will be expected to play almost every day, so while the minimum required players amount is 7, be sure to have a roster big enough to take care of your duties.
    • Teams that make the final four are responsible for their own travel and accommodation
    • The semifinal games on Friday, November 15th will start during daytime 
    • Sign ups close on Friday October 11th 12:00 CEST.

     

    Gather your team and sign up to challenge last years champions FILADELPHIA!

    Brief in Finnish / Lyhyesti suomeksi:

    Ilta-Sanomat ja NHLGamer toteuttavat yhteistyössä IS Cup 4 -turnauksen, jossa etsitään parasta 6vs6-joukkuetta NHL 20 -pelissä. Turnausta sponsoroivat PlayStation, Prisma Gaming ja Alpro. Lue Ilta-Sanomien uutinen tästä.

    Karsintojen runkosarja pelataan 14.–20.10. ja pudotuspelit reilua viikkoa myöhemmin 28.10.–6.11. Neljä parasta joukkuetta jatkaa finaalitapahtumaan.

    IS Cupin nettikarsinnat järjestää NHLGamer. Nettikarsintoihin voivat osallistua kaikki halukkaat ympäri Euroopan.


    5000 euron palkintopotti jaetaan seuraavasti:

    1. 3500 €  
    2. 1000 €  
    3. 500 €  


    Huomioittehan ystävällisesti seuraavat asiat:

    • Turnauksen pelitahti on intensiivinen sekä runkosarjan, että pudotuspelien osalta ja pelejä on pelattava lähes päivittäin. Vaikka turnaukseen voi osallistua seitsemän pelaajan rosterilla, varmistattehan, että ilmoittamanne joukkue pystyy pelaamaan aktiivisesti.
    • GameXpoilla pelaavat joukkueet vastaavat itse matkustus- ja yöpymiskuluistaan
    • Semifinaaliottelut perjantaina 15.11. alkavat päiväsaikaan
    • Rekisteröityminen päättyy perjantaina 11.10. kello 13:00

    Group stage 14-20.10, really? :D

    It's going to be an intensive one, for sure! More details once we know the total number of teams.

    Why there is a week without action between group stage and playoffs? 🤔

    Time for preparation and news articles etc. I know we often pull things off faster between stages, but that's also cause we don't sleep. 😅

    So we have to sacrifice gametimes for these kind of things? 😮

    The short reply is yes. I understand that more time would be beneficial for the teams, but compromises have to be made by different parties at different fronts in order to find a balance between everyones's needs.

    The players and teams are always our main focus. In fact, they are why we do what we do. That said, with the increasing visibility and attention dedicated to our tournaments, we want to make sure we are putting our best foot forward every step of the way.

    Nevertheless, we always welcome the feedback - thank you.
