Overview[edit]

The 2005 CKCG, or China Korea Cyber Games was held from August 19-22, 2005 in Bejing, China.[1] It was composed of 16 invited players, eight from each country, with the Korean players coming from Pantech EX and SK Telecom T1, as the two sponsoring teams.[2] Alongside the individual StarCraft competition, an amateur 2v2 division was also held, as were Warcraft III and Counter-Strike.[3][4]

The tournament was the first in a series of collaborative tournaments between the two nations.

Tournament Information[edit]

The matches were played as a best of one format in the Group Stage, while the Elimination Stage bracket was a best of three format. The Group Stage, which was played as four-person round robins, enabled the selection of the top eight finishers. The Elimination Stage then followed as a single-elimination bracket.

The press detailed some unfortunate some difficulties the participants faced in terms of sub-optimal playing environment and accommodations.[5]


Prize Pool[edit]

160,000 CNY (~$23,950) was awarded among the top placing players according to the following distribution:[6]


The top four amateur 2v2 teams also received prize money in the amounts of 20,000 CNY (~$2,500), 15,000 CNY (~$1,850), 10,000 CNY (~$1,250), and 5,000 CNY ($620). Along with Warcraft III 1v1 and 2v2 and Half-Life: Counter Strike 5v5, the total prize pool for the three games was 650,000 CNY (~$80,000).
