We hope everyone has had a good time watching the tournament this weekend. The finals match was outrageous. If you missed the 1v2, you've got to check it out on YouTube.

Congratulations to the winner, Korea's H O N!

We can safely say that not too many people saw that final match coming! In our Intel Extreme Master's T-Shirt give away only 16 people voted for H O N. We have randomly drawn five users from the 16 and the winners are:

:mage: Witness from EU-Gorgonnash
:paladin: Fyra from US-Moon Guard
:deathknight: Dayz from US-Saurfang
:warrior: Veyl from US-Black Dragonflight
:druid: Narux from EU-Scarshield Legion

Congratulations to those who won. You will be receiving PM's so we can get your information and send you your shirt!

We want to give a special thanks to ESL TV for bringing us the Tournament as well as the raffle!

The commentators are just 2 retards who barely have an idea about arena or PvP. At times are funny but i've facepalmed so many times while listening to them comment on the game or just simply talking BS when there is no game.

Agreed. He thought Azael was 51pt affliction and kept calling the wrong names on the wrong people.

actually think that the commentators are doing really well and have deep knowledge of the game. Considering its not that eazy finding good and competent people that fare well in front of the camera and do good and fast commentary on fast paced sports. This is a videogame and that narrows that down considerably :D.

there were some early games (that probably no one except me has watched!) that happyminti was helping commentate for, and that was a lot better as you might expect.

but the normal commentators tend to call things entirely incorrectly and miss totally obvious stuff.

Your right about fast commentary but they don't have deep knowledge about Arena PvP, just basic.
