Winners of the selection lap in St. Petersburg will take part in the national final round that is to be held in 2-6 September in Moscow. The final prize-winners will form the National Team that will go to the final of the The World Cyber Games in Seoul.

The first World Cyber Games that were arranged in 2001 became a revolutionary phenomenon in the world computer culture and now they are the main annual tournament. They eventually transformed computer games from an usual entertainment into the independent cyber sport. For instance in Korea two national TV channels are dedicated to the cyber games.
