    I don't know, the old graphics have their own charm that HD wont "change"

    Slightly disagree. It's real that old graphics game have their own charm, and it can be enhance by HD. I believe in "Gameplay over graphics", but "Old game with enhanced graphics" is one of the greatest gift we will ever received.

    Yes, but how exciting can it get when the matches are rigged to fit what the AI wants? It simply doesn't become that impressive anymore

    If that is the case, it's not a normal match anymore, it's like WWE. I think WCG will not do a competition against AI like you said, there is no fun in that.


  3. OG lost to the OpenAI Five bots team with a score of 0-2 in an exhibition match. On the second map, the International 2018 champions were defeated in less than 20 minutes.

    Both teams picked heroes from a limited hero pool. Unlike previous show matches, OG was permitted to use invisibility, and the OpenAI Five courier was not invulnerable. At the same time, illusions and summoned unit were not allowed.

    This is excellent news for AI enthusiasts. The state of AI development is getting better to the point that they could even defeat the champions of a complicated game.

    In other news, the World Cyber Games has an upcoming AI robot football tournament. Interested programmers will have the chance to showcase their programming skills and compete against other AI robot programmers. More details about the AI competition here.

    I wonder if anyone found out how what the ending of Tetris was like? If it had one that is

     

    I used to boss my friends at Pokemon when we were kids to the point where one of them deleted my progress Hahaha!

    Hahaha. That's funny, yeah we always have that one friend who always bosses us around because he know what decision to make. But there is also who acts like a boss because he just want to, lol. Btw what happened after that? Did you cry? Hahaha

    I think most of the pro skills come from playing rather than watching the stream. I have not seen people becoming a pro by watching videos all the time. Instead they have to play the game and also learn from others. Again watching gameplay to some extent can be a good idea though. 

    I slightly disagree. In my opinion pro skills comes come from watching other players play and then an idea pops out in their head then they will try that idea in game. You can learn faster if you do that. That's why they compete on esports like World Cyber Games to test their skills and looking for someone to defeat them, and that's the time you became stronger, by taking that defeat as a lesson and a motivation.

    No, it's fine if you love Esports and there are other gamers here who are heavily invested in it like you are but some of us just can't sit around and watch everyone else gaming. It feels like torture to me 😭

    That's what i feel sometimes. I just want to see my favorite players compete and also to support them, i guess that's the real reason why i still love esports like World Cyber Games

    If you're wondering what it's like to be an professional esports player, then this documentary will show you everything about a pro player's journey to victory. For those who haven't watched this documentary, Beyond the Game follows the journey of professional Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne players as they compete in the 2007 World Cyber Games in Seattle, Washington. Three well-known Warcraft III players (namely Grubby, MaDFroG, and Sky) were the main focus of this documentary. One of the biggest struggles in the film is the conflict between a player reclaiming his world title and another player defending his valued world title.

    Beyond the Game is just one of the few documentaries about professional video gaming showing how big the gaming scene has grown during that time. Professional video gaming is now one of the greatest careers to have nowadays and it's just getting bigger as many new games are now paving the way for more aspiring esports legends.

    Have you seen this documentary before? What do you think about professional video gaming?

    Yeah, I love playing games but watching others play them while I myself sit around and do nothing is a tad boring. I will watch a few streams every now and then but it is only to learn new tricks for games I already have or learn more about games I have an interest in buying. There is the occasional stream that is extremely entertaining but that is a bit of a rarity.

    Oh yeah, i see. Now i get it i respect that. If you'll ask me, I watch World Cyber Games to learn new tricks and tips about the game i played, specially the grandfinals. I learned so much from watching esports and it makes my play precise and more focused on winning. So i decided to share a little bit because i want to reach other players with this news. Maybe i'm too hyped because it their grand comeback, i dunno.

    This is eSports 15 years ago at the 1st World Cyber Games 2001. This is where it all started. Today's tournaments are getting more competitive with the increasing numbers of professional teams and organizations with each teams having multiple sponsors to help them grow even more. And another, the very first WCG events placed esports on stage and esport events today are being held at the biggest indoor stadiums with millions of fans watching globally. Who would have thought Esports would grew this big today?

    Wait, did Fnatic come back as of late in LoL? I thought they were humiliated

    Yes they don't and they were humilated, but i loved that team so i include them on the list. It's kinda sad because some popular games didn't make it as official game titles for WCG, but i guess they will featured next year and i know all the esports fan would love that.


  13. Clash Royale is still a fresh new face in the Esports scene. Is anyone familiar with who are the biggest players in the game? I wanna know who the Kobe is of the CR world.

    It's nice to see such an awesome game getting the exposure and more tournaments it deserves.

    Clash Royale held its King’s Cup back in 2016 and King’s Cup 2 back in 2017.

    Apex Legends as well, definitely.

    Yeah i agree with you. But i'm wondering why Apex Legends didn't make it to World Cyber Games 2019, is it because it's a new game? What you think?


  15. Heard about WCG coming back this year. Wow. Not criticizing them or anything, but I was really disappointed to not see CS:GO on the official list of game titles (i'm not sure if this is the final list tho). Like other key games of the previous WCG events W3,SC/SC2,FIFA (Yes, I remembered having this game on every year of WCG), CS:GO also provides the entertainment for most fans. As much as I'd love to see other titles on the comback, I hope they would consider CS as well.


  16. WCG will be making their comeback this 2019. 
    Before that, Let's take a review to some of my Favorite Player in CSGO.

    In the upcoming Tournament of WCG, I'm expecting Gabriel Toledo de Alcântara Sguario known by his IGN "FalleN" to make his appearance in one of the biggest ESports tournament by WCG. 

    He plays the role of an AWPer and in-game leader for MIBR. In 2015 he was voted the most influential person in Brazilian eSports.

    Reasons Why you should idolize fallen (Based on my perspectives)
    This guy is one of the oldest players, He IGL(ingame leader), He AWPs, He has a good Rifle, He is a starplayer and he works hard to win.

    He has great ingame vision,the way MIBR works is very reactionary where they have a default, and Fallen already has it drilled into his players how to react in certain situations. There isn't quite as much mid-round calling as some other teams have. 
    That could be part of what lets him focus more on his game.
