We recently wrapped up one of the most elaborate, intense events in the history of 8 Ball Pool – The Official 8 Ball Pool Forum Cup. This event pitted over 100 of our awesome forum users against each other in two tournaments – one for PC players, another for those on mobile and tablet.
Sure, there are tournaments on 8 Ball Pool all the time, but this one is the most prestigious we’ve ever done. The winner obviously got a ton of in-game coins and cash, and a sweet 8 Ball Pool t-shirt, but the best prize of all was this:
That’s right, the only way to get this achievement is to win the forum cup. Only two people in the world have it right now! Talk about exclusive!
Over six weeks, 64 PC players and 32 mobile players battled it out in two huge single-elimination brackets to eventually crown two winners – first, on PC, congratulations to ATrossityP3!
ATrossityP3 won a hard-fought final victory over the equally awesome L A Z E R (also known as Enoch), eventually eking out a 9-6 win in a first to 9, win by 2 set. Congratulations!
Next, on mobile, our winner was Palak Chaudary.
Palak beat out forum moderator Michael Huang in another very close game, scoring a 9-7 victory in a tense set of games.
Huge congratulations go to both our winners, as well as our second-place contestants and everyone else who took part! The event was a huge success, and we’ve had plenty of interest from people who want to enter the next one. So, how do you do so?
THE NEXT FORUM CUP WILL TAKE PLACE EARLY NEXT YEAR. If you want to enter, follow these steps:
- Click here and go join our forum!
- Become a member of the community! Start posting, get to know people and be friendly! One of the big bits of feedback we had from the first cup was a few players had stopped by to the forum, signed up, and then never surfaced again. To avoid that happening next time, we’ll only be accepting entries from active forum members.
- Early next year, we’ll make a thread where you can sign up for the cup. Leave the information we ask for there, and then hope you get lucky. Remember – the more well known and respected you are on the forum, the better chance you have of getting in!
For now, congratulations again to our two winners, and we hope you all enjoyed the first ever 8 Ball Pool Forum Cup. Not long til the next one!
