Regulations include participant qualification, age restriction, auto-berth, etc.

Expected to provide a clear guideline for players competing for WCG 2006 tournaments

SEOUL, April 21, 2006 - International Cyber Marketing, Inc. (ICM), the global organizer of the World Cyber Games (WCG), today announced the basic players' regulations for the 2006 tournaments, which will be applied in all tournaments including local preliminaries, national finals, and Grand Final in Monza, Italy, from October 18 - 22.

The regulations consist of participant qualification, age restriction, auto-berth, and other players' regulations. They are expected to provide a clear guideline for players competing for WCG 2006 tournaments.

First, rights to participate in the WCG 2006 Grand Final are limited to the nationality and citizenship of the country he or she shall represent. Thus, participating players should have a citizenship to the country, and multiple citizenships are not allowed.

In case of age restriction, any national representative born after Oct 18th, 1989 should submit signed parental consent form before they are allowed to participate in the Grand Final.

In addition, the maximum number of players in each national team is 26. And under auto-berth rule, which is same as last year's, medalists in WCG 2005 Grand Final are allowed to participate in National Finals without competing in local preliminaries.

Lastly, if national team players cannot attend the WCG 2006 Grand Final due to sickness or any other unforeseen event, he or she may be replaced by the next highest finisher in the national finals. As for Half Life®: Counter-Strike 1.6, although substitutions of maximum 2 players who have not previously competed in the national finals are allowed, the team whose substitution exceeds 2 players will be disqualified and replaced by the next highest finishing team.
