Last saturday I was invited to attend the Pc Express PowerCup 2011 Gaming tournament where Starcraft 2 Players faced each other on 3v3 and 1v1 battles. This was the first leg of the starcraft 2 tournament hosted by PC Express in tandem with Mobius. The tournament was set to see who’s worthy to be part of the PCX team that will represent the country for any upcoming Starcraft 2 tournaments.
Upon arrival on the venue, I expected the place to be filled by SC2 players but surprisingly, Eton Cyberpod was hosting to not just Starcraft 2 but also to MU Online (which is a mobius game). The place was already setup to record and there was already commentators booth setup to report how the matches were progressing.
Since this was a first for me to actually see a non MMO related tournament done is such a manner, I was pleasantly surprised on how things were setup. One of the most memorable matches I was able to watch was the 3v3 match where the internet wasn’t able to keep up with the amount of units in one place in a clash. the combination of Thors, Colossus, Void Rays and a friggin mothership made the internet spazz out causing one team the match.
I was one of the people who “aaaawwwed” at that match (hopefully someone would get to read this and post the link to that specific match). I still haven’t received the overall outcome of the match so hopefully I’ll be posting a results of the match sometime this week. Here’s the list of pics I took of the event.
