We will make sure that the finals are the best show Quebec has to offer, if not even Canada. More details on them soon.

Préparez-vous à toute une compétition, c’est réellement quelque chose que vous ne voudrez pas manquer!
  • La Skyzo Cup LoL se tiendra dans la ville de Québec au centre de jeux très connu, « Le Skyzo », le 17 mars. Ce sera le tournoi final, seulement 8 équipes auront l’opportunité d’y participer et ce sera la dernière chance pour les équipes de se qualifier. Gardez les yeux sur leur PAGE Facebook pour les détails!

Chaque équipe qui participera aux finales de l’un des 4 tournois mentionnés précédemment aura la chance de participer à la Grande Finale et tentera se s’emparer du titre d’« Ultime Équipe de League of Legends du Québec ». Nous ne pouvons vous révéler tous les détails maintenant, mais ce que nous pouvons vous dire c’est que nous avons hâte de vous montrer notre savoir-faire avec cet événement.

Announcing Electronic Sports Montreal

25 Jan 2013 2 Comments Tags: ,

Version Francaise Ci-bas

Today, we are pleased to announce a revamp of Montreal’s eSports scene. While Starcraft used to be the main eSports titan, the scene has grown to encompass more players and more games. CyberActiv recognizes this, and we’re expanding our efforts to better serve this changing community.

From now on, we will be hosting Barcraft-style events for other eSports, including League of Legends, DotA 2 and Street Fighter. For those who have never been to a Barcraft or a similar event, the idea behind a Barcraft is to rent out a local bar or club to stream live tournaments. This way, you and a couple of friends can head down to the pub on an MLG weekend and share your passion with other people who love your game just as much as you. In addition to the social experience, we’ll also provide themed drinks and maybe even contests and giveaways.

To reflect these new changes, we are announcing a new program: Electronic Sports Montreal. The ESM team will be responsible for both hosting and promoting these events for all eSports. In addition, we will be advertising these events on our website and on the brand-new Electronic Sports Montreal fanpage on facebook. We also have plans to create an open group in which people can discuss the events, as well as contribute their own ideas and feedback.

Existing organisations and tournaments are invited to collaborate and use the ESM page to advertise and discuss their own events. In this way, different organizers can work together to make scene grow bigger and better than ever before. Great events are rare. We can all work to change this and get more done compared to being on our own. It’s time to give smaller LAN parties some visibility.

As always, CyberActiv is excited to provide you guys with these events, and feel free to contact us with any ideas you have to expand the eSports scene. Happy gaming!

Nous sommes fiers de vous annoncer la refonte de Barcraft Montréal et de la scène eSports de Montréal. Bien que Starcraft en a longtemps été le géant, celle-ci englobe maintenant de plus en plus de jeux vidéos. CyberActiv le reconnaît et nous augmentons nos efforts pour mieux servir cette communauté en constante évolution.

À partir d’aujourd’hui, nous produirons des évènements dans le style Barcraft pour d’autres jeux tel que League of Legends, Dota 2 et Street Fighter. Pour ceux qui n’ont jamais vécu un Barcraft ou un évènement similaire, l’idée derrière un Barcraft est de louer un endroit, un bar ou un club, et de diffuser en continu des tournois. De cette façon, vous et vos amis pouvez vous rendre au pub pendant une fin de semaine de MLG et partager votre passion avec d’autres fans. En plus de l’échange social, nous offrirons des drinks thématiques et peut-être même des concours et des prix à gagner.

Pour refléter ces changements, nous annonçons un nouveau programme : Electronic Sports Montreal. L’équipe d’ESM sera responsable de la production et la promotion de ces futurs évènements d’eSports. De plus, nous promouvrons ces évènements sur notre site et sur la toute nouvelle page d’Electronic Sports Montreal sur Facebook. Nous voulons aussi créer un groupe où vous pourrez discuter des évènements, ainsi que partager vos idées et vos réactions.

Dans un avenir certain, les organisations et tournois existants seront invités à collaborer et à utiliser la page ESM pour afficher et discuter leurs prochains évènements. Nous croyons que la scène du eSport prendra plus d’envergure de cette façon. Les bons évènements sont rares et peu nombreux, et nous voulons qu’il soit plus facile pour les plus petits d’entre eux de s’afficher. Il est temps de donner une meilleure visibilité aux plus petits LANs.

Comme toujours, CyberActiv est heureux de vous fournir ces évènements. N’hésitez pas à nous contacter et à nous faire parvenir vos idées pour aider la scène du eSport à se développer. Bon gaming!

It is with great pleasure that Cyberactiv salutes the hard work of the WCG Canada team who is currently holding the third leg of their Canadian qualifying program in Montreal. The WCG Canada 2012 program is open to everyone to compete in Starcraft2 and FIFA12. The winners of the Eastern National Finals will join the 2012 Canadian Team for a chance to compete at the WCG Grand Final in Kunshan, China.

The last qualifier of the 2012 program is being held at Complexe Desjardins’ Grande-Place, in the heart of downtown Montreal and spans the entire weekend from November second to the fourth inclusively. Gamers will have the opportunity to play on Samsung’s latest gaming laptops while visitors will be able to get up close and personal with other Samsung products such as their famous Galaxy S III phone, tablets and television sets.

WCG has always been an important landmark for the Canadian e-sport community and CyberActiv is delighted to see that it is still going strong, even after 11 years. We would like to acknowledge the dedication of WCG Canada’s two main directors; Thierry St-Jacques Gagnon and Mathieu Morin who have worked tirelessly to ensure that Canadian gamers have this incredible opportunity to compete at the international level. It is through the commitment of individuals such as Thierry and Mathieu and the involvement of many others that e-sports can exist in Canada.

CyberActiv wants to also recognize the steadfast support that Samsung Canada has lent and is still providing to the WCG Canada program. It is obvious that the world of electronic sports in Canada will only thrive if it can count on strong corporate partners to help finance its numerous programs. Samsung Canada has been such as faithful partner for many years and we strongly wish that it will keep the flame burning for many years to come!

CyberActiv is an active member of the Canadian gaming community and as such will always welcome anyone who, through his actions and spirit, participates in the growth of our industry. WCG Canada is important to all of us and we wholeheartedly celebrate its success and the success of the entire Canadian gaming community! We are looking forward to applaud the accomplishments of Team Canada in Kunshan, China.

You can take part in person by coming to the venue: Complexe Desjardins Grande-Palace, 150 Ste. Catherine St. West, Montreal QC

As you might already know, on the weekend of July 14th and 15th, the NASL Season 3 finals will be occuring in a different Ontario than previous seasons. More precisely in Toronto, Ontario, Canada! As our new slogan says, we are here to empower eSports, especially throughout Canada. And as part of our burning desire to help foster the Canadian eSports scene, we felt compelled to participate in this landmark event!

Therefore, we reached out to the NASL and they wholteheartedly agreed to have us on board of what will be known as a stepping stone for Canadian eSports. As part of our effort, CyberActiv members will be on site to help our with the logistics and volunteer coordination. Our multi-year experience with LAN Parties and events such as these will enable us to give top notch help to the NASL team. We are extremely proud that the NASL chose to invite the Canadian Community to produce this quality event.

Through our extensive knowledge of LAN events, existing partnerships and leadership abilities, CyberActiv was able to create a strong synergetic bond between our partners and friends to come up with solutions that would secure an elevated level of productions and security for our southern visitors. Thanks to Team Killing Spree for letting us borrow their excellent casters, Kadium(FB) and Elemental(FB), we will be able to run the world’s first french on-site stream for an international league. While our partners, E-Sports Canada and the Interceptor Group, 2 power-house eSports Toronto partners, worked in the shadows with us, they are proving to be instrumental in making sure the need in people and hardware are met. You can thank them in advance for the sick volunteer work!

Over the course of the weekend, we feel that CyberActiv’s influence will shine throughout the on-site production value and the NASL French stream. We hope that everybody has a great time as this is one of the best occasions to meet the leaders of this industry and CyberActiv’s core team. If you see us with CyberActiv shirts or caps, don’t hesitate to talk to us!

The NASL had this to say about our implication :
“We couldn’t be happier with the service and dedication CyberActiv has given to us in preparation for and execution of our Grand Finals in Toronto. They are a solid partner.” -Mark Brown, COO, NASL

To even further the truth that Canada breeds the very best of eSports, our very own Genevieve ‘Livinpink’ Forget will now join the ranks of the rare few permanent casters over at Playhem! Along with her Canadian co-casters, NostalgiaTalex and Psylence (which by the way, were casters during our WCS initiative!), Genevieve will be casting the NA and EU Dailies from time to time.

Make sure you follow her on Twitter on @LivinpinkSC2 and Facebook at /livinpink to know when she gets online and obviously check out Playhem to either participate in the dailies(75$ is given each day) on their website here or on their Twitch account to be notified once they come online!

Genevieve ‘Livinpink’ Forget joins CyberActiv’s ranks

It has finally come to an end. But what has ended you might ask? It is not the end of days, neither is it the end of eSports in Canada. The answer is quite simple. It is the end of CyberActiv being a man-only operation. We finally decided to include some pink in our organisation. Starting today, Genevieve ‘Livinpink’ Forget will be joining our ranks and will give our organisation a bit of a feminine touch!

Genevieve is now CyberActiv’s Community Outreach Officer. Over the last year, she has been making her mark in the global eSports world. Starcraft 2 caster, interviewer and all-around eSports personality, Genevieve is sure to make ripples on the scene in the next few years. She currently studies law to become a lawyer and her communication skills will surely be an amazing asset for CyberActiv. Her tasks in CyberActiv include spreading our brand, speaking with existing communities to include them in our projects and making sure there is a thriving eSports community in Canada.

Miss Forget has this to say about this wonderful news :

“I am very happy to join CyberActiv because ever since I started streaming and attending eSports events, I made it my mission to make the scene grow to take the place it deserves. Our goals and values are very similar and I am sure that together we will be able to unite the small communities that already exists in Quebec and in Canada and make people aware of the rise of eSports.”

Roch Turgeon, CyberActiv’s president, had this to say about this :

“Geneviève is one of the few self-made women of eSports, her vision and energy have helped bring into focus the important role that women play in the video game industry. Never taking no for an answer, Geneviève is the type of insightful and imaginative “maverick”  that eSport needs! We are very excited at CyberActiv to welcome her into our team and we are confident that she will help energize the Canadian eSport Community and bring it to the next level.”

Let’s just say that the next coming months will be really busy for us at CyberActiv!

Announcing the SC2WCS Canadian Initiative western extension!

CyberActiv is proud to extend the StarCraft 2 World Championship Series Canadian initiative with a late addition! Blizzard was kind enough to provide CyberActiv an additionnal slot for our friends out west. In the last 2 months, we did our best to get a very last spot for the finals(yes, last, we promise!) for the western part of Canada.

It is with great pleasure that CyberActiv announces that LANcouver has been selected as an official qualifier for the WCS Canadian qualifier. Next June 29 will be the biggest LAN in Vancouver for a while and we felt that they would do an awesome job and we know that they will have a stacked tournament that will prove to the rest of Canada that western starcraft 2 players belong in the Canadian pro scene! This is the best opportunity that BC-based gamers will have to qualify for the WCS Canadian finals in Toronto. Once again, included in the prize is also travel and lodging, offered by Blizzard!

We can’t wait to see the brackets and players that will participate! We keep hearing that there is so many great players out west and we know that all you need is a chance! Despite having a great showing at the CyberActiv Second Chance qualifier, maybe vVvHasuu will win himself a spot? Maybe a relatively unknown player will earn himself his cinderala’s story.

So if you are a local BC player and want to take your shot, head over to http://www.lancouver.com/ and get your tickets as soon as possible because June 29 is coming and places are limited!

Tonight SC2QC.com was holding the first tournament of the WCS CyberActiv.ca Canadian initiative. With a total of 98 participants from all over the country, they managed to run a perfectly smooth tournament and were able to crown the first CyberActiv Qualified player.

Through a a series of very early upsets including ECdesrow, AlexCMoi and colRyze, 4 players made it to the Ro4. While NrGAvOiD made a very nice run through the first stages of the tournament, Attero made quick work of him to move on the finals. On the other end of the bracket was the dark horse of the tournament, NMxFGL, which managed to come back, suffering from a 0-2 versus FXOpTiKzErO to take the series 3-2.

The 2 remaining Protoss players duked it out, ending in a very interesting phoenix build by Attero, which clenched the series 3-1! Congratulations to him! By winning the tournament, he secures himself travel and lodging fully paid by Blizzard to the Canadian Finals of the World Championship Series. NMxFGL’s run doesn’t stop there though! By Finishing second, he wins himself a seed spot to the final stage of our final tournament, in which 2 more Finals spots will be given out!

CyberActiv Productions Inc would like to thank everyone involved :

  • The StarCraft 2 Quebec Community for holding the tournament, especially Charles ‘Monx’ de Grandmaison, Gabriel ‘Dero’ Gauthier-Andersen and Benoit ‘PMiND’ Renaud for administering it!
  • KsKadium and Dolmyr for holding the French Stream and Pixie for holding the English Stream by himself! You managed it all like bouses!

Now that this tournament is ended, make sure to follow BaseLAN all weekend long on their site and their stream as well as their Twitter as they will be giving away the next 2 spots!

Announcing the SC2:WCS Canadian Qualifiers Initiative

The announcement we are making today is nothing short of fascinating. CyberActiv Productions Inc. through our growing relationships with the internationnal eSports scene, secured a deal to organize qualification tournaments for the Canadian National Finals of the Blizzard’s very own StarCraft2 World Championship. The CyberActiv.ca Canadian Qualifiers will select the 8 strongest players to compete at the Nationals alongside invited stars. All 8 qualifiers will have their travel and lodging to the finals paid for by Blizzard.

Many of us, passionate eSports fans and enthusiasts, at some point of time felt that there is “not enough Love for Canada” from the international eSports scene. But we all know that the Canadian StarCraft2 community is very much alive, vibrant and dynamic. More and more people are attending eSports events throughout the country and at the same times Canadian events are getting bigger and better every month. CyberActiv Productions Inc. was always on the forefront of the eSports activities. For many years we created an array of fan-loved events in Quebec starting from LanETS, the biggest LAN party in Canada, 10 years ago, to record breaking and world renowned BarCraft Montreal, up to the Montreal edition of the Interceptor Group’s Main Stage Series:White-Ra, special tactics LIVE!.

The initiative we are announcing today will, without any doubt, change the Canadian eSports Community forever. In fact, we believe, that it will trigger the explosion in the growth of the community. It will bring together fans from coast to coast; it will entice partnerships between different organisations working in the field of eSports, and will give a boost to great Canadian players who are not yet known to many.

CyberActiv was honoured with the opportunity to manage qualification tournaments for the Canadian National Finals (the details will be announced by Blizzard in the nearest future) and select through fair and open competition 8 best players from throughout Canada to fight for the right to represent our great country at the North American Finals.

Tasked with this hard job CyberActiv didn’t waste a minute. We aligned a number of partnerships with organisations that have a great reputation in the world of eSports to take part in the initiative. There will be 6 Qualifiers, 3 online and 3 offline LAN events. Our partners are Winnipeg’s #1 BaseLAN 23, creators of the Mains Stage Series – Interceptor Group in Toronto, and prominent organiser of the LAN events in Quebec City – Skyzo Cup. These teams will be running the LAN events. Our partners for the online open qualifiers are the biggest Quebec SC2 community – SC2QC and much respectable multi-gaming club Team Killing Spree. The final on-line Qualifier will be hosted by CyberActiv and will conclude the qualification process.

You can find all the information you need on the central hub of the intiative. The hub countains links to existing communities and events leading up to the final, CyberActiv-run online event. Check it out:
