Could he be the sensation of 2018? After being considered a Tier 2 player for a long time, Romantic has stepped up his game last year with two spectacular results during last GCSs.
Reaching the 4th place in Summer, then getting out of the "group of death" in Winter, he was stopped twice by Foggy during full length series.
Enough to talk about Foggy being his Nemesis? Not according to the young Chinese.
For the first time in 2018, I am teaming up once again with Chatwin for an interview. Let's see what Romantic has in his mind for the upcoming year!
It might, at first glance, strike one as peculiar having ToD featured in the Content Creator Highlight, owing to him being so much more than a content creator in the Warcraft community. You could label ToD as a caster, a tournament organizer, a content creator and - of course - a former professional player whose name has been written down among the other legendary players.
XiaoKK is having a successful second halfyear of 2017 with a GCS qualification together with reaching AWL 2017 playoffs.
During AWL, he took out Remind pulling out a trick from his sleeve, bringing a red dragon in his opponent's base on TM. This move earned him the nickname of "Dragon Tamer" in China right after.
He was also called a troublemaker by Laofen in our last article. How confident is he before playing on the big stage? Let's figure this out!
A new very interesting community has sprouted over the past few months: WC3 Gym. A place where new, returning and seasoned players gather to chat about Warcraft 3 in order to improve.
I have had the utmost pleasure of asking StopClick, the man who initiated it all, a couple of questions about his thoughts on the community.
Ena Cup #5 hype! With the biggest Ena Cup yet coming up this Saturday, I decided to take some time to get to know the tournament’s founder and namesake Ena1337. It was a good thing someone went to interview him too; with all this great information he must have been about to burst! Ena went full enal with this interview, so sit back and prepare for a wild ride.
My first GCS experience at GCS Spring 2016 was not as easy as it has become afterwards. I was not really invited, nobody knew me and I was just introduced to the tournament a few days prior. I attended the tournament after talking to Neo from Back2Warcraft and agreeing to do the coverage of the event on their behalf - even though I had never written anything like that before.
Anyway, that is when I met Huahua (Yeonhwa). I had no privilege so I needed to reach the studio on my own, hailing taxis in the street, finding my own food in a place without a single place to eat and so on... that was quite hectic. Huahua spontaneously offered me her help, securing me a seat in the official tournament car or ordering food online : a life saver!
As she was helping out Lyn and was the official translator of Moon, I was convinced, until very recently, that she was Korean.
Having established himself as one of the main pillars in coverage of competitive Warcraft 3, he helps us to gain insight in the Asian scene - both in tournament and ladder play. I am glad to announce that Hi2Chaco has agreed to partake in the second episode of Content Creator Highlight!
There is always a good reason to talk with TeD: be it his solo legacy, his outstanding 2v2 results, his current casting career, or the state of Warcraft nowadays. He always has a valid perspective on any topic.
At first I wanted to talk about Race Wars, which one of his fans allegedly sponsored, but we went on discussing something else entirely!
Yes, you read that right! Replayers.com is back!
With a new team, but still with the old and clean look that made the site a joy to the eyes. And with a new name as well!
You can now find them over here: w3replayers.com
For now, you can only upload Reign Of Chaos replays to their database. Plans for a section related to The Frozen Throne do exist, but the website is still in its implementation phase. The team is adding new features over time in order to give the site a more user-friendly interface.
I used the opportunity to have a very brief talk with staff member HardCoreOne about the relaunch of the website.
