About the United Cup 2008
Any player, beginners, amateurs, semi pro or pros alike can participate
in the 2008 United Cup. Players are allowed to participate in the
tournament with only one (1) character (the highest level character
per account) and can participate in this tournament up to 1,000 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 their
own region, or players have the option to choose to represent either
the United States or the European Union if they have a preference.
Winners will be awarded prizes including the Team captain's name being
entered into the Shot Online Hall of Fame. In addition, each team
member will receive their choice of 2008 United Cup Clothing set.
"What better way to kick off the fall season than with a good
old-fashioned USA vs. Europe competition," said David Chang, Executive
Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for
Gamescampus.com. "We only recently unveiled the Pearl Green Island
course so it will be great to see which players have perfected their
game and can come away the winners."
