About the 2009 United Cup
Any player (beginner, amateur, semi pro or pro) can participate in the
2009 United Cup. Players are allowed to participate in the tournament with only one character (the highest level character per account) and can participate in this tournament up to eight times. The best score submitted will be the player's final score.
In the tournament, players will be asked whether they are from United States or the European Union and then will be matched against players from their own region. Players also have the option to choose to represent either the United States or the European Union if they have a preference.
The top ten players from the USA and European Union will play in the United Cup Finals on May 21st at Shot Online's Rufus Arena for special prizes. Winners will each be awarded prizes including a set of United Cup clothing, a repairable United Cup driver and 5,000 campus credits.
