After the wedding, without wasting our time, we head straight to Midvalley Megamall to witness the event of the year, WCG 2007 Qualifier. After a few visits to the booth that are available there, MTH have decided to sign-up for the online game, Rakion (with Derky and me).

After that, we head on to the main stage and saw some dudes dancing. After they finished dancing, we went to the battle arena to check out the games that are currently on live especially Counter-Strike and Warcraft.

While walking out of the battle arena, we spot some game models and we send CaesarXT and MTH to do some scouting.

The next day, Sunday, I managed to drive down to the final event of the game and just in time for the final match between Hybrid and XsM. FMJ lost to XsM and they managed to grab the 3rd spot. Thanx to Chapree, he entertained me for a while before I went back to my home sweet home !

Overall, I've no comment for this year's WCG. Its just that I guess its quite a small event compared to last time. The booth somehow look packed because their were set up close to each other. Nevertheless, it is still a successful event if you ask me. Through out the event, Vietnam paid us a visit for a friendly training to prepare themself for the grand final. Im not quite sure about the other games but for Counter-Strike, I got to watch the first match which we were represented by FMJ and the 2nd match where Hybrid played. Sadly to say, Vietnam's team were below par with our own Malaysian team. I wish them good luck. Also, I spotted MYM.ASH at the Starcraft Qualifying Chart. He is the international clan, MYM, Starcraft Manager. He managed to reach the quarter-final. Anyway, below are some of the results for Wcg 2007 Malaysia Qualifier.

Counter-Strike 1.6
1st : Hybrid
2nd : Xsm
3rd : FMJ

Warcraft III The Frozen Throne
1st : Enet | Paulyan
2nd : Battleangel
3rd : Pin

Starcraft The Brood War
1st : JamesFoo
2nd : Marine
3rd : BB-Tank

Congratulations to the winners and may they bring fame for us Malaysian gamers at the grand final that will be held at Seattle.

Wedding : Queen of Pain's Brother

Around last week, the same day with the big gaming event WCG 2007 (Saturday), we (I and my housemates) went to the famous tDs's Queen of Pain, Iskandar or better known as tDs-IS, brother's wedding. By goin to the wedding, we can save our money by just having our lunch there and perhaps, can last us atleast until dinner. The really funny part is that Slideways printed about 4 copies of the map that can lead us without no hassle to Is's house. Out of the 4 printed copies, none were taken with us. Btoii dak ?? (Right ??) Enjoy the pics below.

GGC Malaysia : Semi Final

written by Antabax | 2:16:00 PM | , | 4 comments »

Quickie : WCG 2007 Malaysia is finally over. Congrats to those who won. Will blog about it later tonite.

Here are some updates on the GGC Malaysia tournament. It has reached the semi final stage right now. So which team that qualified for the semi final ? For the first round to determine the quarter-finalist before the semi final, as usual, the 2 top teams (total of 16 teams) of each group need to defeat their opponent to qualify for the quarter-final. Cybertime`G managed to qualify after some grueling matches with PD which they won by 2-1 while W4SI on the other hand, won 2-0 againts [W.A.R]. The under dog team, XERO, again, surprised everyone by defeating PLAB. One of the members is a friend of mine and their teamwork is quite strong judging by the way they converse in game. Meanwhile, SMGP lost to MBJB with the score 2-0. eD, a quite well known online clan, will also join the qualified teams after winning 2-1 against MILK. Another quite known clan, Ks, defeated [IV] and like eD, will join the others for the quarter final. The two remaining teams that proceed to the quarter final is team NsP and aTTP. They won because their opponent, ABC and TMSTYLE lose their qualification.

Now lets talk about the quarter final that separates them. Xero, yes you bet it, won with the score 2-1 against MBJB. From some insider(s), I heard that it was a tough game for XERO but they managed to pull it off and win 2 matches. For eD, sad for them because they are fighting for a semi-final spot and the team that they need to face is non other than W4SI which are quite famous and have won some lan tournaments before. The score ended with 2-0 in favour of W4SI. It is heard that they forfeited the match due to one of their member's internet connection was so bad. Nevermind, there is always next time. Ks, who won before, managed to continue their winning streak by defeating aTTP. The last team who qualified for the semi final is Cybertime`G which they got through the quarter final with ease because team NsP lose their qualification.

So we have 4 strong teams now for the semi final which is Cybertime`G, XERO, Ks, and W4SI. The schedule is out here. A lot of people already have Cybertime`G and W4SI for the final game in their mind. Let see if XERO can upset W4SI or maybe Ks will win against Cybertime`G in the semi final. As always, time will tell.
