Information:

So the group stages are over. In case you missed it, coverage of the first event including results can be found here. 17 started out, but those numbers have now been wittled down to just a measely 8. As predicted, Group's B-D's seeds Sky, Fly100% and Infi breezed through with relative ease, but Group 'of death' A claimed seeded Human player TH000, instead seeing TeD and Yumiko advance.

What wasn't predicted was who would advance alongside Group B-D's seeds, and in answer to that question we have: Alice, wfz, and TiuJQY. Those three are far from favoured going forward to the next round, but anything can happen when faced with the pressure of the big stage.

So what happens now? Well, the eight remaining players will be placed in to a bracket: Single Elimination, Best of 3. With playoffs for third place position. The top three players are then deemed the official qualifiers for WCG's Grand Finals running Nov 29 - Dec 2 also held in China.

The WCG committee prohibits the release of replays due to a commitment with their coverage partners, but a Chinese livestream can be found here with VoDs shortly to follow. All times listed below are Chinese Standard Time. Click the link to see current time in Shanghai.

  1. Nobodies commented on this yet, but I'de just like to say thanks for the update. I've looked at this page about 10 times in the past 2 days. Also, I think the final is at 14:00 according to their site, unless the translator is failing.

  2. I wish I could have updated in real time, but I was always sleeping or at work when the matches were on.

  3. "The WCG committee prohibits the release of replays due to a commitment with their coverage partners, but a Chinese livestream can be found here with VoDs shortly to follow."

    Brilliant. Why drum up what little interest you can for a forgotten game. Best keep the replays to yourself. Stupid Chinese.

  4. Agreed. Stupid Chinese retards.
