Chronology

The Brain Champion Cup 3 (abbr. BCC3) is an Age of Empires II 1v1 tournament hosted by Legion Clan and sponsored by Canary.

About[edit]

Cheating Scandal[edit]

In August 2010, three months after the conclusion of the event, it was established that RiuT and dogao, who had won and placed fifth respectively had assisted Cain, another Brazilian player, during the tournament by playing games using his account, thereby helping him to finish fourth and winning $800[1]. As a consequence they were fined prior to their participation in World Clan League 7[2]. Cain never gave his prize money back and never participated in any other event. In the aftermath of that cheating scandal, Canary, who was one of the main sponsors of the scene at the time, sponsoring The Brain Champion Cup tournament series, would move away from his financial involvement.
