The NABV and SpeedQB Europe are working together to deliver you a unique event during DreamHack Rotterdam 2019. For the first time ever present at a DreamHack festival the European Championship SpeedQB Airsoft brings 24 airsoft teams from all over Europe to Rotterdam Ahoy to battle against each other in the special SpeedQB arena. Like a real-life video game, imagine your favorite first person shooting game brought to life!
What is SpeedQB?
SpeedQB is a new, competitive high-speed airsoft game type. A competitive 5-vs-5 team shooting sport focusing on creativity, efficiency and team chemistry. In a SpeedQB tournament during each match a total of ten players (in two teams) compete against each other in a relatively small arena. The arena is a closed area of 18 x 35 meters, filled with obstacles to be used to your advantage. For the audience in Ahoy there will be stands to watch the gameplay from above!
The game is similar to capture the flag, in which players rush to obtain a centrally-located flag and hang the flag in the opposing team’s spawn point. It’s life action equivalent to esports with 3 rounds, each of 4 minutes maximum. The winner is the team that won most rounds of a match.
Try SpeedQB yourself!
During DreamHack Rotterdam, there will be several demonstrations. Also, as a special DreamHack scoop: you can try out SpeedQB yourself on several occassions in between matches. There are a limited number of people who can participate, so be sure to sign up for this at the NABV area on time. A visit to the European Championship SpeedQB Airsoft is included in the DreamHack Rotterdam ticket.
During the NK SpeedQB Airsoft, the Dutch Championship, on September 29th in Geldermalsen, the 4 best Dutch teams will qualify for the European Championship at Dreamhack Rotterdam. So, it’s not only the Dutch title at stake during the NK SpeedQB. Four teams also win tickets for the SpeedQB European Championship. If you want to take a shot at becoming the Dutch, or even European Champion with your team, sign up at the NABV website. Registrations are open until September 24th 2019. Please note: Each team consists of a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 7 participants. All team members must be members of the NABV. Participation in the NK is free of charge.
