For the last five years G.SKILL have been running the G.SKILL OC World Cup, a contest that actually spans three round; an online Qualifier followed by a Live Qualifier and then Grand Final 1v1 round. The live stuff takes place each year at the G.SKILL booth at the Computex show in G.SKILL’s hometown Taipei. As always a large prize pool of over $16,000 US dollars was up for grabs, including a whopping $10,000 large ones for the eventual contest winner.
