We had a pretty successful second season with Replayers Epic Cup. The community received the format changes pretty well and players were under less pressure as well, resulting in many satisfying games at Warcraft 3's highest level.
Now, it's time for another Epic Cup and with your support, this one will hopefully be as thriving as the last one.
Unfortunately, none of the Epic Cup #2 finalists will be among the participants this season. We didn't manage to get in touch with the champion, Lucifer and our inquries from his friends revealed that he is busy with other activities besides eSports and cannot partake in this season. Fly100% also, will not be among the contenders, due to lack of time.
But, worry not! We still have a star studded list of players, including some community favorites, who are rarely seen in international competitions.
Full list of participants:
We also, have a new map pool which includes some of the less played but still fun maps around:
And last but not least, we have increased the prize purse once again and this time, to $200.
Groups and match dates will be announced shortly. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Groups are drawn. Check them out here.
Unfortunately, another Korean player forfeits Replayers Epic Cup, following Space's early exit in the groupstage.
When approached to schedule his playoff match against Rudan, ReprisaL claimed he doesn't have time to play due to his real life obligations.
Thus, the French player, Passion, who had finished 3rd in Group B will replace ReprisaL.
