ZOTAC has announced a sad news yesterday - An era will come to an end
"The New Year is still young, but we already had to make some tough choices. There is no easy way to say this, but the time has come to look into the future and evaluate new up-and-coming gaming titles for the ZOTAC Cup. Unfortunately that also means we have to make room for these changes and let some of our beloved tournaments go. Two new tournaments will be announced in the near future, but in order to make this possible, we are forced to hold the last ZOTAC WarCarft III Cup on Saturday, January 25th.
It has been 12 years since the release of WarCraft III - Reign of Chaos and it has been a great ride! Even after all those years, WarCraft III is still one of the most enjoyable games. The ZOTAC Cup is proof of that! Starting in 2007, the tournament has been a great success and we all enjoyed each and every minute of it. We are glad that everyone stayed with us for such a long time and made this an unforgettable tournament. Hardly any other game would have inspired us like that throughout the years.
We had the honour to follow a variety of players from all over the world during the last years whilst they battled it out for money and glory. ZOTAC wants to thank everyone who competed and followed the ZOTAC WarCraft III Cup. Stories developed throughout the tournament as we witnessed huge upsets and glorious moments week after week.
So, for the last two weeks, choose your heroes and let us meet on the WarCraft III battlefields for a glorious end to an era of online gaming!"
