    Sky wins WC3 tournament in Chengdu 18.01.2009 05:48    
  His second title in one week

The Warcraft 3 side tournament at the Continental Final Asia CS is finished. The winner is Sky. Only one week ago he won the WC3L XIV Finals with his team World Elite. He had to play Grubby already in his second group stage match on friday. This time the Dutch Orc wasn't even able to win one map. So the next game in Chengdu will be the CS1.6 Consolation Final between Team TitaNs and wNv. They compete for the second spot at the Intel Extreme Masters III Global Finals at CeBIT, since WeMade Fox already secured the other one yesterday.

  Looking for revenge!

The Dutch superstar advances to the Grand Final of the Warcraft 3 tournament in Chengdu, China. After beating TeD he will face Sky in the Grand Final. Both players are looking for revenge, since Grubby lost to 1479288 in the group stage but just kicked Sky's clanmate 1944209 out of the tournament. The last Warcraft 3 match of the Intel Extreme Masters Season 3 is about to start in a couple of minutes.

If Grubby want to win this tournament, he has beat his Human opponent on four maps, since he is coming from the Lowerbracket and has to win two Best of threes. The maps of the first Bo3 are: Twisted Meadows, Melting Valley and Ancient Isles.

1944209 kicked 1157983 out of the tournament. Unlike the Counter-Strike tournament no Korean is in the tournament. In a few minutes TeD will face Grubby. This constellation isn't the first one here in Chengdu. Both met already at the group stage. It was Grubby, who was able to win this first face-off. Can he redo his triumph?

  One of the best players of Korea!

Since the internet connection isn't really good in China, we are glad to offer the first point of view demo of the Intel Extreme Masters III Continental Finals Asia CS. The Korean ingame captain 2770810 of Wemade Fox showed his impressive skill in the Winnerbracket Final against wNv Teamwork.CN. Besides a lot of good and clutch rounds it was the last round, which will stay in our minds. Facing a majority of opponents he managed to win the round and bestowed a spot at the Global Final on his team. You can download the ineye demo here.
