July 30th - 3pm eastern
The Championship GoW 1vs1 tournament is just around the corner! Formally it would happen during the Warcraft 2 Festival on the last Sunday of July each year, but I have done my tournament plans a little different this time. http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,2816.0.html
It will still be on the last Sunday but it will be a stand-alone tournament for the weekend. I have held this GoW 1vs1 Championship several times now and some of the very best players in Warcraft 2 History have been able to take it home:
So let us look forward to seeing another repeat champion or if somebody new can rise from within the ranks!
Lets take a look at some potential contenders:
u8t3io3p has a 4 tournament win streak now in my tours.
braviet was in the finals of the very first one, as well as semi-finals of others. Would be a nice tournament for his resume.
LoNe wants this one bad, and it is right up his alley. GoW 1vs1 is his preferred style.
Viruz the only player to win it twice, he logged back on for the last tournament and has been active in the weeks since, with enough practice I think he could be in shape to pull it for a third time!
Swift has come short in the finals losing to Viruz in his last two attempts. The debate of greatest player in .RU history has been between Swift/Viruz, time for redemption?
Shotgun,Jesk,LuX,Koorb,alf,Vizzer,Medivh,Fighter002,00Joe,StarTale,Poscow,Yamon,Mystical,Knitterhemd .. the list goes on and on there are so many good players who all know GoW so well and could pull this off.
This will be the first time the tournament prize will be spread between 8 players. (ty ~Tora~)
1st place - $200
2nd place - $100
3rd place - $50
4th place - $50
5th place - $25
6th place - $25
7th place - $25
8th place - $25
Plus newly added $50 drawing for all players who do not make it to a cash prize position. At the conclusion of the finals a name will be pulled live on the stream!
I ask once again for you to be able to collect the prize you have to provide WAR2INSIGHT replays of each game you play in the tournament. We want to make these games view-able to the public on the youtube channel and potentially attract more players.
So GL - HF and practice up for the most prestigious tournament of the year!
