Can you create a better hype video for ESL One Cologne 2015?

The task is simple – create a video as a teaser or to increase hype for ESL One Cologne 2015 and you may win one or two of the very valuable Premium tickets.

To help you out, we put almost 30 gigabytes of our video footage from the previous major, ESL One Katowice, at your disposal, while you can also use in-game footage of your choice and still images from our galleries.

Combine and edit those as you desire and present your final product in form of a youtube video (tagged [ contest] in the title) and link it in the comments below.

The contest will be open until Tuesday, August 4th, 23:59 CEST, any entries posted after that will not be considered. On August 5th we will put up the best videos per internal selection up for a community vote, which will end on August 6th, 17:00 CEST.

The prizes for the best videos will be 4 Premium tickets. The best video will receive 2 Premium tickets, while the 2nd and 3rd place will receive one each. Another 10 regular tickets will be handed out to randomly selected participants.
