Introduction
Over the last weeks the stunlocked team started to work on a concept for European online WoW tournaments. We have a working tournament UI and will run showmatches for testing over the next weeks. We want to bring not only the well-known names that participated at tournaments for years but also new teams. Right now we are looking for members that would like to join the team and make a name for themselves as shout-casters and streamers/camera men. This is not based on server or guild - we look for participants from all over Europe.

The idea
Competitive communities are based on tournaments. This is where champions are born and names are made. I strongly believe that MoP has a good chance to have a competitive pvp scene. Sponsors are looking at WoW again. Now is the opportunity to make it happen and we want to build a team for that.

Shout-Casters
You need to be communicative, entertaining and have a good awareness and class-knowledge. Also you need to speak English well. We have one shout-caster up until now and we would love to expand that. Shout-casting needs training of course, but I am certain that a lot of capable casters are around in the EU. If you want to make a name for yourself, let me know and we can give you the chance to participate during our wargame tests.

Camera men and streamers
You need a good connection and a computer that can handle recording the matches while streaming. You also need a good awareness of the game and be able to let the viewers see the critical moments of the matches. We currently have one streamer for the tournaments.

Video artists
The tournament videos all will all be on youTube. We would love to have them edited by someone that has expertise in this area or is willing to build it up. You need video software and have knowledge about editing.

Designers and Illustrators
If you are a good designer or illustrator we can certainly use your help on the team.

What we have Required
You need to have Raidcall installed, as this software will be used for communication around the tournaments and has a much better security than Skype, especially against DOS/DDOS attacks.

What about cash?
This is one of the goals, but if you look for something that will pay your rent this will not suffice. Once the tests are finished we will contact potential sponsors with an expose. Price money is the first thing to spend money on. It is not my goal to make money with tournaments, but to support cash prices and the team with money from sponsors and add-revenue.

Talking at the moment with streamers and have the shout-caster added as contact as well. Things are looking good and we will stream the tests on Sunday for anyone interested. Channel(s) will be announced later.

Currently testing on two streams:

Stream 1: Hendie
Stream 2: Crawthz


Edit: The teams have problems with the arena frames due to the tournament setup. Please don't judge their play because of that.

Its just my opinion but i think showing just few cooldowns per classes on the bottom like dance / cloak / blind(?) instead of vanish kick etc for rogue or just fear + ps for priest per example instead of fade grip etc would be better.
For me it would give a better viewing experience as i will actually maybe look at it instead of a huge block of every cooldowns, but maybe im wrong and most people disagree with that so can't rly tell, just my opinion.

We appreciate all your constructive feedback. Remember the teams also have difficulties and do not play to their potential during these matches.

He does not have Junkie status, so send him PMs in case you want to ask him something.

The 2 Shout-Casters on the WMD team or what ever they were, entered abit too early and had them on arena 2 and 3 a couple of times during the testing, should probably make sure that doesn't happen in the tourney not a big thing but still.
