This is not just a report on what happened, it is a view on the future and what we can build from these! Let's get Lucifer!
Involved with Hundredkg in the organization of two events in a weekend, I felt a tension that I did not feel for a while. Trust me, it is more stressful to organize one showmatch than going to Shanghai and talk to any player there!
Foggy triumphed over Romantic 3-2. I do not know how it could have been any better for Europe : a disastrous G1 on EI with a creepjack that destroyed Foggy.
During G2 on AI, and there I wished somebody could make a clip out of Neo's shoutcast, a very close fight in Romantic's main get the Chinese being wrongly announced as the winner by our favorite caster! :)
After winning G3, Romantic had two ace games and map choice for G5. Still Foggy prevailed and will compete for next Showmatch.
Foggy will be back in Rocky #2
Thanks to a good promotion prior to the match and having some of the best casters available, we reached the 50k viewers mark overall at the peak of the game:
* Chinese streams numbers are usually inflated ~ still they were the most popular WC3 streams on both their platforms.
Our plan is to make this a regular event to help promoting European players. This is planned to happen once every two weeks against a Chinese or a Korean player with a strong reputation. The winner stays, and another comes in for the contest.
February 4th 10:00 CET, we will welcome Lucifer has the new challenger for the "King of the Hill" showmatch. We just need to raise 100$ every two weeks for this. If you want to participate, you can contact me (twitter.com/playffa or email@example.com) or Hundredkg for donations. 50/100$ are already raised at the time I am writing this article. You will always be informed of the schedule game before you decide to donate or not. All donators will be listed and named (unless they want to remain anonymous).
Lucifer and Foggy during GCS Spring
Team Foggy / Hawk / Orcworker faced team Happy/Sheik/Shadai in a remake of the last mission of Reign of Chaos. Who won? I will not spoil, just check Wtii cast of this funny event!
Agrig has many ideas and provide much sponsorship. His next one is probably one of the most ambitious thing I will have taken care of in Warcraft. Yes I just tease because I will only talk about it if it works... and if it does not you will have forgotten about this article after your next few drinks anyway!
See you around for more adventures.
