About Red Bull LAN

Trial of the Xel'Naga: The Spectators decide the Fate of the Pros

This year at PAX Prime in Seattle, Red Bull and Day[9]TV bring you StarCraft II eSports like you've never seen it before: YOU get to play in the tournament along with the pros! We are granting you super powers to change the outcome of the game while it's happening!

Ever watch a match and think: "Man, I really wish I could give White-Ra some extra templar! If only Sheth had his broodlords out a little sooner! I wish someone would nuke SeleCT's worker line for once! I want my favorite player to WIN!"

At this year's PAX, you finally can! You play the role of the powerful Xel'Naga, creator of countless species in the StarCraft II universe. As you observe the teams battle, YOU decide how to change the course of the game by directing the casters to act. You can bless or curse the players with nukes, unkillable demons, waves of ferocious karaks, destructible rocks, and much, MUCH more. Using the powerful new StarCraft II 1.5 Arcade editor, we've created the custom map series "The Xel'Naga Games" to gift you with super observer powers!

Every few minutes and at critical junctures throughout the game, the audience (aka YOU) will be called upon to decide the fate of the players. Through live voting you will unleash your chosen acts, blessings, or curses upon the players-a series of shocking and visually stunning features you are going to love. Then keep watching to see how the pros respond to your completely outrageous interruptions! You can either play in person at PAX Prime or play online as a spectator on this website!

 

The Format

The format of this tournament event is an 8 team 2v2 bracket. Professional players will be teamed up with lucky audience members for each game, and the spectators will curse or bless them. This is a truly interactive event that allows the community a rare opportunity to play both on the main stage and from home!

 

The Elements

This event will feature three different custom-themed Xel'Naga maps: Fire, Jungle, and Storm. Each map offers unique features and abilities that the audience can trigger at any time. New features will be revealed daily right up to the actual event. Dying to know what they all are? Vote online in our poll to determine which ability we reveal next!

 

Admission

Want to be a part of our live audience? You must be a Pax Prime ticket holder to attend the live event! Seating will be on a first come, first serve basis, and will be limited, so come early!

Note that a select number of special admissions vouchers will be given away during the day at PAX Prime by Day[9], Husky and the pro players. Be sure to hunt them down and convince them that you will make a good audience member!
