In this new series, we will highlight prominent content creators in the Warcraft III scene. The articles will consist of an overview of the featured streamer/Youtuber and an interview in which will get to know a little more about the person behind the content.
In this pilot episode of the series,I am excited to feature Spaceman Spiff. Though he is very green at creating Youtube videos, he is already showing great potential!
Reddit user with a good ground name for a 120's fanbase (longliveundead) complained that I did not interview the new double GCS champion after his epic victory in Shanghai.
True enough I did not, as I failed to connect with him for the last 5 months I did not even try. And I was convinced someone in China would do it anyway.
But they did not... so I asked.
First time I went to cover a live event was GCS Spring 2016. I remember my meeting with Keke, seeing her running the show backstage and ordering the players around.
She was in charge and she still is involved in most of the major events China has to offer to Warcraft 3.
So for my last day at GCS Summer 2017, we went to do an interview. Her first interview I believe.
As we are approaching 2017 GCS Summer Main Event, which is to take place I Shanghai on August 16-22, we’ve managed to chat up with the main hope of the foreign scene – Andrei “Foggy” Koren. We spoke about the competition, the player’s preparation and current form.
It was in 2011 that Blizzard released his last Warcraft patch that just slightly touched the mechanics of the game. It was just about fixing Hex bugs when using it against chemical rage and metamorphosis...
After 2 more recent patches which only objectives were to bring Warcraft 3 into the modern age of video games, we finally saw on Friday at Chinajoy a major update through the revamping of the item drop system, as well with an update on the maps.
You can know more about Blizzard's strategy by reading this interview.
Terenas_LV was the first map to be revealed to the public on Friday at Chinajoy with a game played between Fly and 120.
Qiaolin was the official commentator on site and of course Neo woke up early to cast it live through a restream. Both of them agreed to share their feelings about those changes.
A few days before the new patch is tested during Chinajoy, Blizzard Classic Team had a little chat with esport journalist Forkxx about the process of balancing the game.
Bright days ahead!
Which server is the most active? Which time is the best to search for 1on1 or 4on4 games on Battle.net? Is it easier to find games in 2on2 or 4on4? These are some of the questions that people often ask in Wc3 forums.
Bearand did some amazing research on the Wc3 games played on Bnet and uploaded the results on his website https://arranged.team. Thanks to his results, we can finally get a better idea of activity on Battle.net and find optimal hours to play our favorite game.
Let's check out some of his interesting findings and have a brief talk with bearand himself!
I was contacted a few weeks ago by the Brazilian Esport writer Forkxx that prepared a series of no less 6 articles about Warcraft 3 15 years anniversary!
My part was to get players' testimonies : contacted them all, got more than a few answers. I hope you will all enjoy that little moment of Nostalgia.
May Brazil comes back to WC3 thanks to theenemy.com.br and Forkxx!
We had one dinner in Shanghai with Colorful, eating hot-pot with Neo, Remo and GCS admins. They made fun of him ~ about his lack of education or something..., I did not really get it then. Now I do, and so will you!
Colorful has progressed a lot these last weeks and far from being a "Grade 6 student", he has now become a "Grade A player"!
