Berlin, 18th February 2014: All eyes may be on Sochi, but it’s also raining medals in the sandbox-shooter Brick-Force! Brick-athletes from all over the world gather for the official Brick Winter Games! From now until the 24th February, eSportsmen and brick fans can collect points and prizes in eight different disciplines. Winners will be rewarded with gold medals and xp buffs to commemorate their achievements.

Success requires athletes to prove themselves as the sharpest shooter and the speediest racer, in both the snowman hunt and the steeplechase. A overall ranking will be split between the participating nations and all players from the winning territory will receive the rewards. In order to provide a fair playing field, rankings will be based on average kill count per territory.
