The 6th edition of TL-Arena was played and broadcasted March 16th, 2010. It featured the first racepicker to play in TL-Arena: Oystein, one of Norway's finest, plays PvT, PvZ and ZvP. His performance and choice of map earned him the nickname Vikingtoss. Commentary was done by Raelcun and a returning Lepekahn.

Concept[edit]

Hero would face 8 players on 8 maps, randomly drawing one handicap after every win from a pool of 16 handicaps. The game is over if the Hero loses.
