Description[edit]

The ZOTAC cup is a weekly, open-access tournament that gives out 100 euros to the winner of the European one-day tournament, and 100 dollars to the winner of the North American one-day tournament. It is recognized in the Warcraft III community, with more than 300 installments for that game alone. Originally planning the first StarCraft II beta tournament for the 10-02-21, it was pushed back to 10-02-28, due to waiting for confirmation from Blizzard.

In preparation for StarCraft II, ZOTAC began running a weekly cup for StarCraft: Brood War to spread awareness in the StarCraft community of their competition. They ran 35 weekly cups before stopping the tournaments for their StarCraft II beta competitions.

The ZOTAC cups are played at 2pm CEST every Sunday and individual cups are currently held only for EU. The last NA cup was held on January 25, 2014.[1]

Starting July 2011, ZOTAC organized a Monthly finals gathering the top 16 players of the weekly ZOTAC Cups over a month with a prize pool increased to 800 euros. The last Monthly Finals was held on January 2014. It was replaced in 2014 by Season Finals, each season covering three months of weekly cups. The first cup was shortened to two months only due to the last Monthly January cup.

On January 30, 2015, ZOTAC announced on their homepage that they were dropping StarCraft II and FIFA to replace them with Hearthstone in Europe and North America.
