Overview[edit]

The 2006 IEF, or International e-Sports Festival was held from September 28-29, 2006 in Shanghai, China.[1][2][3] It was composed of 16 players, eight from each country, after a preliminary qualification process.[4] The Chinese qualifiers were held in a number of major cities to select the strongest national representatives, while Korean preliminaries progressed from April through July for the September grand finals.[5][6]

Alongside the StarCraft competition, tournaments for Warcraft III, Guild Wars, and Counter-Strike were also held.[7][8]

The tournament was the second in a series of collaborative tournaments between the two nations, following the 2005 CKCG.

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.[9][10]


Prize Pool[edit]

$20,000 was awarded among the top placing players according to the following distribution:[11]


Along with Warcraft III, Guild Wars and Counter-Strike, the total prize pool for the four games was $72,000.
