The United States Ragnarok Championship (USRC) is about to begin.  Teams of 7 will be able to brawl in last-man-standing PVP arenas.  Regular tournament play will require a team to win 2 out of 3 matches to advance.  Title matches, to determine 1st through 4th, will be a best of 5.  Matches will last for a maximum of seven minutes: after that, whichever team has the most characters standing will be declared winners to break the stalemate. 

During the tournament, some skills will be restricted, including select abilities from the Shadow Chaser, Geneticist, and Sorcerer.  Players will also be limited to 167 skill points total, so players will need to be creative in their character builds.  Prior to battles, equipment can be purchased from vendors to ensure top quality gear is available to all to ensure a fair playing field.

The big draw for this year’s USRC is the amazing Cash prizes!  The tournament champions will win $1050 USD for our Champions, while the runner up team receives $595.  Third place goes home with a respectable $350; for a total prize pool of $2000 USD!  Spectators aren’t being left out of the tournament, either: sharing the Ragnarok Online’s Facebook posts, or tweeting with the hashtag #USCR2012 will enter fans into a raffle drawing for additional cash prizes.
