Overall Final

July turn out to be one of the busiest months for professional gamers this year. One of the most recognized events, ESWC, ended sucessfully only two days ago. The latest version of StarsWar IV is going to start shortly after that. This entertaining event will be held in Shanghai, China and kick off tomorrow and last until Sunday. The event is consists of 24 players who are divided into six teams. Each team leader picked three additional players from his region. What kind of excitment will an event provides with players like WE.Sky, 4K^Grubby, BeT.FoV, and MYM]Moon? Let's wait and see. Besides that, the event provides the audience also a unique system to experience something special other than thousands of other similar tournaments. You can take a glance of rules below: Six teams are divided into two groups. The best two teams of each group qualify for the semi-final. All games will use last man standing format. Two players from disqualified teams will join up the finalists. There is popularity vote involved and the two most popular players will be revived. Only players from another regional team are allowed to be voted. For example, if the final is Team Kylin against Team SkyWalker, the most popular player from Team Dragon will join up Team Kylin and the one from Team Romantic Elves will join up Team SkyWalker. If finalists come from the same region, then the two most popular players from the rest four teams will join up them. Here is the link you can place your vote.

Group A (Thursday)
It is 10AM in China and the players just arrived at the location. StarsWar IV is hosted at a huge Gamingexpo called ChinaJoy, several thousand visitors are expected. On first sight the event somehow reminds me on EuroCyberGames at CeBIT each year in Germany. Apparently Insomnias flight got delayed to 2PM, HoT seems in trouble with visa after the denial of the visa for France, however the first match of BeT-FoV versus WE.Sky should start soon.
