About

SCV Rush began in 2011, organizing weekly tournaments for various skill levels, hosted on EU and NA servers with small prize pools.

More notable "Masters Brawls" took place between 3 April and 1 May 2012 with $15 for 1st and $5 for 2nd place. From 15 May 2012 on, the prize pool had been increased to $100 and the tournament took off every two weeks.[1]. The last Master Brawl occurred on June 26th, 2012.

On 25 April 2012, a $500 showmatch between Netherlands Zerg Ret and Ukraine Protoss White-Ra was ran.[2][3] More high stake showmatches were launched and called The Friday Faceoff.
