Gold Championship Summer Series 2017

15.08.2017 |MrWhite aka d4rk2 comments

The biggest modern Warcraft 3 tournament starts tomorrow. In which group did the Western Warcraft 3 players end up? The best of the best are playing, and a whole week of high class competition is on the way. 

Gold Championship Summer Series 2017

Wednesday will be the day the Gold Championship Series kicks off. It's the major tournament for Warcraft 3. For everyone new to esports in Warcraft 3: This tournament is hosted and organized by Netease, the major internet company in China. Two years ago, Netease created a new platform for the Asian Warcraft 3 players, that wanted to play on a competitive Warcraft 3 ladder that was monetized.

This will be the third time we send Western players to the tournament. Last time, elf Foggy almost went all the way to the finals. A well-deserved third place during the 2016 Fall tournament and his impressive performance has helped European Warcraft 3 become a force to be reckoned with.
