Rumors from the Philippines now and especially with the captain of the Mineski team. It is being rumored that Wootz is a free agent and is no longer going to feature in the Mineski lineup. The rumors are fuelled by messages put up on the personal profile of the player on facebook. One of his posts cried out ‘free lancer’ and a later post was asking for teams to adopt him. It will be interesting to see where this talented player ends up!
The eight teams to make it to phase 2 of the G1-League qualifiers, and it is unfortunate to announce that no Pinoy teams made it! First Departure, Neo.int and Chains Stack represent Singapore whilst MiTh-Trust and Neolution.TH represent Thailand. The next phase will see these teams face off against 8 teams invited by the organizers. It is rumored that the next phase will consist of 4 groups with the top 4 teams making it to phase 3 and challenging the top 4 placed teams at last season’s competition. For a full list of the teams in action, check out this link!
Now for some Starcraft II action, although not technically SEA related, I have been following the MLG Dallas competition for Starcraft II and it is surprising, or maybe not.. that Koreans are owning all of the non Korean players. What is it that makes them so good at the game? The event seems pretty cool however, and although it obviously suffers from the over-the-top USA influence a round up of the first day can be seen here. I believe MVP could be favorite to take the trophy!
