Hunting Pokemons as well as Euro players for GCS, seeing Colorful showing some ressources to get out of "the group of death"

I like to write stories. I like to give opinions and try to make predictions... so allow me to do so here and let's move from the Recap format I've been doing the last two weeks. It is easier to write a good story when I am live during an offline event. Waiting to see if I will be invited for GCS Fall and WCA of course, nothing sure on these points. But in the meantime, here are the things that I want to talk about.


1- Collecting Euro players for GCS 

Netease released the list of players admitted to take part in the Fall International Qualifiers. But where the hell if Mr  Wan?? He was the uninvited in the former article but ok, now you gotta invite him! Seriously he finished top 6 at WCA Europe, eliminating  Rudan and  Warchiefrich, why, why, why!?

I see that the rest of the scene is there,except  Shadai that would deserve a slot too. Just hoping that those that will play have time to play the playoffs after and eventually have time to go to China afterwards. If you do not, just give your slot to Wan now! 

I wonder if  Happy will be allowed to stream? So many important questions to be figured out and we did not even started the tournament yet!

No surprise on the Korean side, just very happy to see all big names there. Also happy about  n90 presence, he performed well in Ifeng and Inkeop Cup recently, beating many top guns, and I am excited to see him play against the strongest Europeans. And Korea needed a stronger Human line up as well.

Hold on a second guys, I have Neo on live chat... Yes Neo? What, GCS just published a wish list, not actually contacting the players? Well huhum, we gotta fix this in a week or so? Ok!

 Yaws on vacations,  Orcworker unavailable,  Ente has to work.... aaaaah... at least  Happy is allowed to stream with 3 mn delay, we asked straight up! Still not sure if he will play though. Anybody has seen Xelsing in the last 6 months? 

 Wan has a slot now. How fast things can go...  Imperius should play,  Sheik probably too... we will keep you posted.


2- Collecting Pokemons


What else happened in the last few days?  Neo played Pokemon with  Yaws after they decided to part ways. Were they drinking some refreshing German beer while doing so?

I am not too much into this Pokemon madness stuff, glad that China is banning those from its territory... Apparently I do not even spell the game name right.

Neo if we split up someday, let's play Chess! And if any reader is a chess player, contact me for some games!


3- Collecting Money

We reached the 4,000 $ step in donations for Ting Invitational Warcraft tournament, so we should get  Lyn! It is awesome because he is the best in the world, and requests less money to involve than others. Well done champion!


4- Colorful showing his muscles before WCA S3

Colorful won the last Ifeng Cup #122 without losing a map, beating Romantic along the way.

Quite impressive and it shows promises for his WCA S3 participation. He is in such a strong group with Life, Fly100% and Romantic again! This looks like the group of death. I want to make a bold belt and say that Life and Romantic will go through, eliminating Fly100%.

Group A will see Xiaokk, WFZ, Yumiko and Th000 battling for a spot in the semis. 1st place is promised to Th000, then everything is open. This will be the last spot for China to be attributed (officially). I start to doubt that there will be any North American qualifier, but this is just my point of view.

See you next week for more of Ugri mumbling about WC3!

how is lyn considered the best player in the world? Ok he was amazing at the china vs korea tournament, no doubt about it. but fly and th000 have been alot more consistant the past few months while lyn just keeps losing every tournament

#2 to #4 : I appreciate thennice feedbacks! #1 When it matters, in the biggest events, Lyn wins. 10-0 in solo, in Beijing, against the strongest Chinese lineup, winner of the Korea Qualifiers for WCA... not the best of the world? #5 I am just an editor, not a W3arena administrator, so I cannot help for those issues (except about FFArena)
Comment #7Mon Sep 12, 2016 12:07 pm
#1 Lyn is overall the best player in WC3 history
Comment #8Mon Sep 12, 2016 13:14 pm

Moon is officially the best w3 player in our history and all know this and take it as a pure fact.Lyn is also worldclass player and I like him very much.He is the second most succesfull player (talking about money) but I think that Grubby th00 and Sky are more remarkable
