Rapha is the first World Champion in Quake Live
In a tensed Grand Final the US boy stays cooler than cooller
In a thrilling match the more than packed Intel Gaming Hall powered by Alienware just saw Shane 'rapha' Hendrixson and Anton 'Cooller' Singov gave everything to reach their goal of becoming World Champion in Quake Live.

On four maps both players focused a lot on keeping control and not doing any mistakes that could cost the title. So the results stayed below 10 kills on every single map. rapha was the one to keep control in three of the maps and so won the very first World Championship title.

Final Standings of Quake Live:

    1st: Shane 'rapha' Hendrixson ($10,000)
    2nd: Anton 'Cooller' Singov ($4,000)
    3rd: Maciej 'Av3k' Krzykowski ($1,600)
    4th: Alexey 'Cypher' Yanushevsky ($800)
Congratulations, Shane for winning this title and all the other players for the incredibly thrilling performance. We hope to see you around next time!
