Looks like the regional finals for Taiwan are this weekend. It looks like it could be very exciting considering how many different comps they will be running (no paladins of course :P)

UPDATE: The live stream can be found here: http://www.efun.name/live/. We won't be covering the results due to the language barrier, but you should still watch it as it is entertaining.

The teams involved are as follows:

1) :druid::priest::warrior: Made In Taiwan
2) :mage::priest::rogue: 小嵐洛
3) :druid::rogue::warrior: 黑貓是白目
4) :druid::rogue::warlock: 十粒�*�明一切
5) :priest::shaman::warlock: 我們來娛樂的
6) :druid::priest::warrior: 豐原�*客 小德撲會玩
7) :hunter::priest::rogue: �*�*�英雄大爺集團代表隊
8) :priest::rogue::rogue: Cydonia

Here is the official Blizzard announcement. Thanks to Grombringal for the heads up. See you on vent this weekend :)

I'm rooting for 'Made in Taiwan'. The priest on that team (think his name is 'Kek') used to be on my server (Spinebreaker-US) as the legendary mage [B]Zet[/B].

He was definitely the best pvper I've ever seen and it was sad to see him move to the TW servers when they came up. I expect his team to win regionals easily! :)

how? any competent melee team will rape you.

Also, first it says the weekend, meaning saturday+sunday, and then it says friday+saturday, what is the real date?

I have a very difficult time believing the priest on that hunter team is anything except shadow.

Train hunter = victory even more so then the more poular druid version of the combo.

Trying to think of what exactly a disc/hunter/rogue team would beat if if he was infact disc....
