Overview[edit]

The "AMD PG Challenge Summer 2003" was hosted in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic in June 2003. The PG Challenge was one of Eastern Europe's biggest LAN events, featuring a prize pool of over $ 30,000 for different titles, such as Warcraft III, UT 2003, Quake 3, Age of Mythology and StarCraft Brood War.

For Brood War three different tournaments were hosted. The biggest one was closed to 32 invited players, the second one was open to the public and called "Bring Your Own Computer" (BYOC), the last one was reserved for Czechs (MCR) as national championship.


Prizes[edit]

Each Tournament had a different prize pool. The largest one was given out for the Invitational Tournament.

The first of the three Brood War tournaments to start was the Czech Championship. It was originally planned that 16 players could participate. In the first stage of the Czech Championship the participants would undergo a group stage with four players per group. The winners and runner ups of this stage would advance into a 8 Man Double Elimination Stage on the second day of the LAN. The other players failing to qualify out of their groups would automatically be put into the BYOC tournament.


The second Brood War Tournament, the BYOC, was the largest tournament. Initially up to 80 players could participate and had to undergo a group stage. It was planned to have eight groups with four to ten players in each division. The first three places would advance into a 32 Man Double Elimination Tournament; eight more players were automatically seeded into the Elimination Stage from the Invitational Tournament. The BYOC Group Stage was started five hours after the Czech Championship.


The third tournament was the Invitational Tournament. In theory it should have featured 16 international players, who were invited to join the LAN. Similar to the other tournaments, all invited players were placed into four groups with maximal four players each. The places one and two advanced into a 8 Man Single Elimination Tournament, while the other players to not qualify were seeded into the 32 Man Double Elimination Stage of the BOYC Tournament.
