The prize pool for season four of the Fragbite Masters tournament has just been announced to be $71,000 USD, a raise from last seasons $55,000 share.

Season four of Fragbite Masters was announced yesterday in an article here on ggnet, consisting of both CS:GO and StarCraft II events. This season will feature a $16,000 raise of the tournament's prize share and Fragbite also plan to use an additional $7,000 in order to support teams travelling to the LAN event with travel costs.

The event will also feature "Play of the Day" which gives all participating teams the chance to win $3,000 if they win a vote that decides the best played round of the tournament.

At the end of the tournament, all "Plays" become subject to a final vote, where the star(s) of the best sequence gets the 25, 000 SEK prize. - fragbite.se
