The 2008 Elite Summer Contest was known as The Everyone Wins Edition. 2008 differed from the previous five Elite Summer Contests in that:

  • The Contest field was expanded to 128 players
  • Round One consisted of 32 four-way battles with only the winner advancing to a traditional 1 vs 1 format for the remainder of the Contest.
  • With the field expanded, the Champs returned! (except Clark and Ngamer)

The Contest officially kicked off on Sunday, June 1st of 2008, following a Play-in on the previous day. To vote, Eliters should have sent the name of their daily choice to DK over AOL Instant Messenger at DKK5 or at DavidK519@gmail.com.
