125 FPS is a noncommercial project that was created by volunteers with the goal of organizing Quake Live tournaments (and perhaps tournaments for other games in the future). All began on the 29th of March 2012 with daily Quake Live cups that took place five times every week on weekdays. A total of 200 such one day cups were played featuring a ~3€ prize for the winner. The daily cups culminated in a monthly playoff tournament between the best performers with bigger prize pools. Normally 10-20 players participated in the dailys but with time that number diminished and it was decided that the format had to change. The last daily cup was played on the 1st of February 2013, a monthly playoff tournament followed on February the 2nd and with that the daily cups were history.
At that point we had gotten a good sponsor - the big quake lover Alexey A from Moscow region (may he live until his hundredth year) - who offered to put up 550€ for grabs every month! Starting with the 4th of February 2013 a monthly Duel Quake Live league was held, composed of one week of qualifiers, two weeks of group play and a final week of playoffs. The top-8 was rewarded with monetary prizes.
In November of 2014 after 20 monthly leagues the format changed again - the league was extended to 7 weeks and as such basicly fills up two months now. This only means that the game days are further spread apart, the system (qualifiers, group play, playoffs) stayed the same. The prize fund for the 7-week league is 866€ thanks to Alexey A. and all other donators who sometimes add to the prize pool.
Apart from the league showmatches and some one day cups with prizes are held from time to time. Soon all information about all our tournaments will be added to the "Statistics" tab.
