Cries of despair in the streets and Warcraft players jumping from their rooftops.
Two days after our regular "Happy beats Foggy in finals" snack, Gera Cup was no more, buried in the ground by its creator through a short statement on goodgame.ru.
Now that we have dealt with the trauma, let's reminisce Gera Cups one last time together.

On 14 January 2018 starts the 9th season of the New Warcraft 3 League (nWC3L). The league was created in 2014 by Nikolay “Nick” Shmatkov, and he was managing it up until the last season when he had to step back due to personal reasons. As one of the only 3 active clan leagues in Europe (together with WC3CL and CWL), and the only league that features WC3L style clan war format (4x 1vs1 + 1x 2vs2), nWC3L has been offering unique opportunities for players to compete against each other in teams, providing opportunities to many to reminisce (or to experience for the first time) the emotions of playing in or witnessing Warcraft III clan clashes.
Ugrilainen, the Warcraft 3 visionary, has a new Warcarft 3 objective in the making: To organize the biggest 4vs4 tournament in the history of Warcraft 3, wherein Blizzards LV maps from the 4vs4 PTR map pool will be used!
It feels like yesterday when I think of GCS Summer 2017, I reminisce 120 keeping his crown, Infi getting the better of 120 with a 6-4 score overall, Foggy getting another 3rd place... But also ReMinD's jokes, beers and late night discussions with a German couple, table tennis with a Serbian basketball player and much more - the list goes on and on.
Sadly, this season Remind, Yumiko and Lucifer did not make it. Same for me, Ugrilainen, missing my first GCS since Foggy beat Lyn in his first live event. Time flies. Since then Foggy looks more like an established pro than a rookie with his two GCS bronze medals.
Ok let's talk about the tournament now!
The MooCup has a long tradition within the German and European WarCraft scene. With its 100th episode drawing near, we talked with Marsimoo, the man behind it, about the anniversary and other trifles surrounding his doings.
MooCup#100 is crowdfunded by Marsimoo and his community, Lioncast.com and sign-ups through ESL are still open. You can register via this link, where you also find all relevant information.
The cup will be held on October the 7th.
