WCG NL results (27 comments)
Posted by Ins0mnia @ 14:39 CDT, 28 September 2008 - iMsg
Yesterday in the Theater Factory, Amsterdam the Dutch World Cyber Games Qualifiers finals has been played. This during the Firstlook game exhibition. The results are known and these people will go to Germany to fight for the honor and of course the big bucks.

All the games has been played except for Counter-Strike, this because DCC-Gaming didn't show up for the ECG. So Blammo (the host of WCG NL) decided not to hold a CS 1.6 qualifier this year.

WCG Admin Talks Drug Use in E-Sports (56 comments)
Posted by lolograde @ 08:53 CDT, 28 August 2008 - iMsg
Gameplayer.com.au has an interesting interview with the Australian tournament admin for the WCG on the topic of drug use in E-Sports.

Excerpt,
"In one WCG, a player I knew took amphetamines an hour before his match to boost his reflexes. His team ended up losing the match, although it certainly had an impact - his performance helped his team to win one map out of three - it kind of hits home that only the really talented will come out on top in the end."
The rest of the interview can be viewed here gameplayer.com.
