Today I want to spend a few words about the newly updated forum, as well as presenting the latest news concerning the w3arena tournaments and some information related to the Warcraft 3 scene: WEC, NWC3L and WCA.
Our community forum has just been restructured. From now on you can find three main sub-forums which were made to make things clearer and simpler.
The W3Arena-related topics have been completely separated from the Warcraft general discussions. The purpose of this is to increase your interest in other
Warcraft-related subjects. In this way our portal will act more like a real community forum, and not just functioning to serve you technical support
regarding the server. We hope to see more posts especially in the Warcraft III forum, without disregarding some major contribution in the off-topic section, with
the pubication of funny pictures, discussions about personal interests outside the game and so on.
We held our 43th Solo tournament featuring 72 participants.
The winner was 123456789012345 a.k.a. Sonik, who ended up with an overall score of 11-1, winning against Netsky in the final.
Instead, the 44th Solo event has brought 61 players. It seems some bugs have occured during this event, so what I can tell for sure is that Sonik managed to
reach the final once again, this time against VeryB1GSkill. Unfortunately the result of their game remains unknown.
As you have already noticed, the WEC replays are finally available on Replayers.
In particular, I'd like to drive your attention to the actual Replay of the Week, which is, in my humble opinion, one of the potential candidates for the
Replay of The Year 2014 title. Also, Back2Warcraft has shoutcasted some of the replays, posting them on his YouTube channel.
For the lovers of teamwork, I should mention that a new team event called " New WarCraft 3 League" (NWC3L) is about to start at the end of this month.
The first season will be held on the W3Arena server and sign-ups are still open. Any team can send their application which has to feature at least 4 players.
Its system is very similar to WC3L. In short: Group stage (2 groups, all the games are BO1) to playoffs (BO3).
There is a modest prize of $ 100 for the first place.

World Cyber Arena, the huge Chinese event will be held in the beginning of October and groups are already released:
The participants will play in the BO2 format. The top two of each group will advance to the Round of 8 double-elimination playoffs, where they will compete for the
record prize money of $ 49,000. A bigger post will be released once the tournament starts, so you will be able to follow the entire event on w3arena.net.
