CyberGamer is still running its Call of Duty 4 finals, this week we saw Dino take on Urban Legends http://www.gamestah.com/file/view/2905 and qmX take on Fray which was a massive game. http://www.gamestah.com/file/view/2916
The girls have been going at it once again, and making Arsey proud! They have been pawning face lately so check out their match this week. http://www.gamestah.com/file/view/2936
CEVOWaW saw the Loser Bracket Final get played out with Rhythm taking on Naturally Skilled (ENCORE) in a heated affair, with all the usual banter, epic lols (stace) and b1g clutches.
A new one for the article, when good shoutcasts turn bad. Static took on pG:1st Commandos with a funny ending.
We saw two massive Left 4 Dead matches this weekend which could have gone either way until the very end.
CGi MHz: 5774 def v!x: 3657 http://www.gamestah.com/file/view/2933
CGo GenetiX Gaming: 4651 def C4G: 2631 http://www.gamestah.com/file/view/2937
CG admins have been able to sort out the issue that was only allowing 8 players to join the server. (Shoutout to Talnoy and Phalanx) Does mean we couldnt coverthe Gac Challenge for #1 last sunday but they are defending on thursday against crazy bill clan (will update with results)
Over at Team Fortress 2 we had a chat with ozf admin ravelizard on the Ã�ber Hour about the recent dramas http://www.gamestah.com/file/view/2917
There are heaps of matches in 4 division of owl + ozfl
More matches then able to post up here so check them out at www.ozfortress.com
TF2 Beta mod is looking at tweaks for competitive play, so we should see some improvements very soon. Invites from Robin Walker go to players, including some Aussie such as pvh
Been a while since our last DOTA update, and there has been many things happening in the world of DOTA. With the Asian DOTA Championships comming to the end of their regional qualifiers we are setting ourselves in for what should be an amazing playoff for the title of the best team in Asia. To check out the coverage of the tournament so far jump to the Asian DOTA championships file library (http://www.gamestah.com/files/pc/warcraft-3-dota/asia-dota-championships) where you can check out big games like
[China Semi-Final Game#1] CT vs Ehome
[Australia Grand Final] - MCiTY vs C2i
[Malaysia Semi-Final Game] iNc.Excello vs Mski.MY
And many more. With alot of the Grand finals happening over the last week Gamestah has not been able to cast alot of them due to time commitments in Real Life (yes that thing we lead when we don't shoutcast). But keep your eyes out for the upcomming coverage.
Also kicking it up in the world of DOTA is the Cyber Gamer Open and Invite Ladder, with the creation of the invite ladder it now means the teams in the open have alot more of a chance to be compeditive, as well as working towards playing against the best in the Invite League. A couple of big matches from the last week (and a bit) from the CG ladder:
GDT vs JoysP
D4D vs Ice Cold
That is it for DOTA for now, but keep your eyes open, DOTA news will generally come hard and fast
And now for an update for a game we don't offically shoutcast yet, but is attracting alot of interest none the less is Heroes of Newerth, a game created to be the stand alone version of DOTA, and is doing a pretty decent job of it (even tho still in closed BETA).
If you have been watching the gamestah news at www.gamestah.com you will know that the Gamestah Invitational will be kicking off soon, with the teams being picked in what is a series of exibition matches designed to showcase the features of Heroes of Newerth, and show how they can be used in compeditive play.
A bigger reason to tune in for this coverage is the fact that coverage like this has NEVER been provided before. With the game still in a closed BETA, alot of people have not even seen a game of HoN been played, let alone played by some of the best teams in the world, with the gamestah invitational featuring Mcity from Australia, GDT from America, Honcraft.ru from Russia, and Poker Stars from Canada.
With these top teams involved we should have an amazing exibition to show the entire world, so see this WORLD EXCLUSIVE at Gamestah. (Dates will be announced soon)
That's all we have time for this week guys, but keep an eye out for next weeks article as there will be some big matches headed your way.
