WCS Season 2 and 3 Europe he was 2 times the runner up and finally in 2014 he won WCS Season 1 in Europe. Now we will see him back in action in the scene.

starcitizenhelp | The age of collegiate eSports is upon us

Pac-12 announces their networks, responsible for 850 live events and more than 500 hours of original programming, will begin to hold eSports competitions.

The Pac-12 is a massive collegiate organization responsible for winning more NCAA National Team Championships than any other organization in college sports history. Today, they have announced amongst a series of other decisions that they approve their networks to begin holding eSports competitions:

Following an internal review of the growing interest amongst Pac-12 students in competitive video gaming, the presidents and chancellors approved Pac-12 Networks to commence eSports competitions with Pac-12 universities this upcoming year. Teams from campuses will participate based on a specific game, and the competitions will include head-to-head matchups in studios as well as a tournament in conjunction with a Pac-12 championship event. The game titles and event formats are still to be determined, but will be announced in the coming months.

eSports has seen explosive growth over the past year, but this might be the biggest step yet towards a future where the influence and growth of eSports reaches mainstream levels. Collegiate events like Heroes of the Dorm have already paved the way for the major networks to embrace eSports programming, and with the advent of Coke eSports, Yahoo eSports, and more household names associating themselves with gaming, 2016 looks bright.

MarineKing retires from professional StarCraft II on starcitizenhelp

MarineKing retires from professional StarCraft II on starcitizenhelp

The famous South Korean Terran player, Jung Hoon “MarineKing” Lee, has retired from professional StarCraft II.

MVP team manager Felix “JeeF” Jedelhauser broke the news on Friday.

MarineKing’s retirement comes after a failed attempt to qualify for GSL Code A.

This isn’t the first time that MarineKing has retired. In 2013, he left StarCraft II to play League of Legends before returning in early 2014. Currently, there are no announcements of MarineKing’s plans for the future.

MarineKing leaves StarCraft II fans with a glowing history. After a string of repeated silver medals throughout major and premier tournaments, he broke the Kong curse and became the first player to win two consecutive Major League Gaming titles. He boasts top finishes across MLG and GSL events, including second at the 2011 GSL Championship and the 2014 Hot6ix Cup. While his results declined in recent years, his legacy is one that truly deserves the title of Prime.

ShowTime is your WCS Spring Champion! on starcitizenhelp

After two days of SC2 action we can finally crown our Dreamhack Tours Champion. ShowTime took on Nerchio in a BO7, after both had a long run to the final defeating some tough opponents along the way.

 

The day started off with the semi final of Seon Hoon “Polt” Choi against the Polish zerg Artur “Nerchio” Bloch. Bloch was looking for revenge after the 3-1 loss in the Ting Open group phase. He blasted the Korean terran away in a stunning 3-0 series where Polt never stood a chance against the awesome play from Nerchio.

In the second semi final the German protoss Tobias “ShoWTime” Sieber took on the Canadian terran Maru “maSa” Kim. They had never played against each other so the fans had hoped for a long and intriguing series, but ShoWTime wasn’t obliging and just went for the 3-0 wipe against the Canadian. 

Goiing into the final ShoWTime was looking for revenge, as in the last seven matches he was not able to win against the zerg plays of Nerchio. The games were not in favor of anyone at the start due to a number of extremely close fights, and the players traded over the first four encounters. The only fast game was game five, where ShowTime was looking to get his first match point by fast building the Dark Templars and Nerchio had to tap out.

However, in game 6 Nerchio was able to tie up the series so we could enjoy a decisive game seven. Goiing into the last game on Korhal Carnage Knockout, both players started with a basic build and nothing special to see. ShowTime spawned in alot of adepts in the the third base, taking down a lot of Nerchio’s queens. With this strategy the German player was able to take home the Gold medal and secure a direct invite to the WCS Finals at Blizzcon

starcitizenhelp – Ever wanted to change your battle.net tag? Now is your chance

With the release of Overwatch, Blizzard is giving everyone one free chance to change their battletag .  Choose wisely!

Official post here

When did you first choose your battletag? Two, four, ten years ago? It’s the same battletag for every Blizzard title, so chances are if you ever played WoW, Diablo, or Starcraft 2 when the games first released you have been playing with the same ID for ages.

And with this system, there has always been an awkward moment where players wanted desperately to change their battle.net tag but couldn’t. Sure, Blizzard gives you one opportunity to do so, but what happens if you squandered that with an equally disappointing battle.net tag? You are stuck. Making a new account is impossible, as all of the goodies, games, skins, heroes, and other things can’t be transferred to a new account.

But now there is hope!

Citing the release of Blizzards newest IP, Overwatch, as a reason to give players the opportunity to create a new battle.tag, Blizzard is renewing the “one chance to change your battle.net” rule for every player. Note, you can still only change your existing battle.net tag once, so think carefully before you change!

Follow us @GosuGamersHOTS for all your Heroes of the Storm news from around the globe.

Star Citizen Persistent Universe exploration gameplay

Star Citizen Persistent Universe exploration gameplay

From the mind of Chris Roberts, acclaimed creator of Wing Commander and Freelancer, comes STAR CITIZEN. 100% crowd funded, Star Citizen aims to create a living, breathing science fiction universe with unparalleled immersion… and you’re invited to follow every step of development!

More than a space combat sim, more than a first person shooter and more than an MMO: Star Citizen is the First Person Universe that will allow for unlimited gameplay.

So far, the community is pretty cool too. Though there is a percent that want to be pirates or bounty hunters, I’ve got no problem with them. Since they’re pretty easy to avoid, and they add realism and contrast to the game. The point of SC (when it’s fully released.) is to be whatever you want. Pirate, smuggler, trader, scientist, explorer, whatever. And there’s no point of having a good-evil game with everybody picking good is there? And I’m gonna be a smuggler, so while I’ll be regretting this statement later, the looting assholes will bring some excitement to this game. Plus, as the kind of person who just likes to grab some popcorn and watch the show whenever there’s drama, I LOVE the drama in SC. When somebody gets their ship destroyed at Kareah or a cry-astro station by an outlaw, and they get stranded, they get fucking pissed, and it’s hilarious to watch in chat.

Other than that, the community’s great and friendly, and if you ask in chat if you can join somebody’s crew on a multi-crew ship, most of the time, somebody will accept. And even if you just board their ship and take a seat in the turret without saying anything, they’ll still be cool about it. lol
