Overview[edit]

The Iron Squid – Chapter II is an offline premier event announced on September 27, 2012. The tournament gathers 32 players from around the world. Twenty-four players were invited to the event and the eight remaining spots were granted via four qualifiers (one for players living in Korea or in SEA on October 13, one for players living in Europe on October 14, one for players living in North America and Latin America on October 20, and an open qualifier on October 21). The semifinals and finals will be held offline on 26 January 2013 in Paris,[1] at Le Palais des Congrès, that can accommodate 3700 spectators.

The event is broadcasted in French by Pomf et Thud, MoMaN, Anoss and Trunks; in English by Wolf, Khaldor, Day[9], Kaelaris and ToD; and in Russian by Igor.[2] Soe is also making an appearance as host, although mostly on the English stream. Like in the first edition of the Iron Squid, the tournament features original musical themes specially composed for the event by the band In Uchronia.

Musical Themes[edit]

The organisers of Iron Squid sought the help of musician and composer In Uchronia in order to create a dedicated set of musical themes for the tournament. In addition to the general themes, each player also has their own theme, which is played briefly at the end of any game which they win.
