Tournament Postponed!Due to all the issues which are still present in Crysis 2 after its launch we are going to postpone the tournament by 1 week until next Thursday 7th April starting at 7pm BST.
There are patches coming that address both server and user side issues so hopefully within the next few days we will be able to test and play on a much more stable copy of the game. This does, however, give you more time to signup so scroll down and follow the signup guide! We will keep you posted with any other updates regarding Crysis 2 and the Multiplay Online Tournament.
