Svensk dominans på DH Summer 2013
Stora svenska framgångar när DreamHack Summer 2013 avgjordes - svensk "doldis" plockar överraskande medalj och storlagen fortsätter att dominera.

Under helgen som passerade (lör-tis) arrangerades DreamHack Summer 2013 på Elmia i Jönköping. För svensk del skulle evenemanget visa sig bli en oerhörd framgång då vi kammade hem tre guld och ett brons (i tre av de största turneringarna) i vad som måste anses vara en av de bästa svenska turneringarna någonsin. Dessutom var det svenska LoL-stjärnor i de mest framgångsrika lagen.

Chockade Fighting-communityn
Först ut var turneringen i Street Fighter IV:AE som avgjordes under Lördagen. Världsmästaren och den tveklöst mest dominanta fightern Infiltration var på plats för att försvara sina två tidigare mästartitalar. Dessutom var som vanligt legenden Ryan Hart på plats och som har fyra DreamHack-titlar på sitt bälte. Men det var faktiskt ingen va dessa storfavoriter som tog hem segern. Istället stal svenska göteborgaren Popi showen. Genom att först besegra Infiltration med 2-0 och Ryan Hart i Winner-bracket så kunde inte Infiltration stå pall för svensken i finalen. Detta är troligtvis en av de största esporthändelserna på DreamHack. Infiltration har inprincip varit obesegrad i 2,5 år och alla vill nu lära känna svensken som har besgrat honom. Grattis Popi! Dessutom kom svenska Ettelman från Team Property på en härlig fjärde plats.

Bara The International kvar
I DoTA 2-turneringen var svenska The Alliance storfavoriter till segern, ett favoritskap som G1 League-vinnarna mäktade med att bära. Laget tog sig nämligen hela vägen till final där man ställdes mot Quantic från Frankrike.

Efter att ha plockat den första kartan skulle Alliance visa var skåpet skulle stå reda i karta två men det ville sig inte riktigt utan Quantic tilläts komma ikapp och utjämna men efter suveränt spel av svenskarna kunde matchen tillslut plockas hem med 2-1 och därmed försvarades DreamHack-titeln.

Även den gamle stjärnan kan än...
För de svenska Starcraft 2-stjärnorna är DreamHack ett speciellt evenemang, det kryllar av koreanska superstjärnor och det finns inget hellre vill göra än att vinna på hemmaplan och när alla favoriter faller måste någon annan ta klivet fram. Denna gång var det överraskande Jeffrey "Sjow" Brusi som i mångas ögon gjorde sin absolut bästa turnering sen IEM-vinsten för några år sedan.

Den hete och pånyttfödde Team prOperty-spelaren lyckades på sin väg fram till medaljerna bland annat besegra Harstem och superkoreanen Life. Dessvärre för Sjow blev den blivande DreamHack-mästaren StarDust för svår och Jeffrey fick nöja sig med en bronspeng och 20 000 SEK.

Dominansen är total!
När världens absolut mest dominerande lagmaskin NiP-Gaming spelar i en turnering är det knappt lönt att sia om utgången, de svenska superstjärnorna i CS:GO har inte förlorat många matcher under vägen till världstoppen och DreamHack skulle inte bli något undantag.

Efter att ha besegrat ryska tidigt i turneringen defilerade ninjorna till final dit det svenska överraskningslaget Epsilon även tagit sig. Dessvärre för Epsilon gick det inte rubba Ninjas in Pyjamas denna gång utan NiP vann en komfortabel seger med 2-0 och för besväret fick man en prischeck på 70 000 SEK.

League of Legends-stjärnor
Även om Sverige inte har något helsvensk lag som är bland de bästa så gjorde svenskarna extremt bra ifrån sig. Först ut så vann Rekkles som inhoppare DreamHack League of Legends Championship tillsammans med Copenhagen Wolves, 70 000 SEK rikare. I LCS som drog igång på DreamHack så hade svenska Alexander "Jree" Bergström lekstuga med sitt Team Alternate som gick 5-0 på plats och har fått en fantastisk start på säsongen, läs mer här.

Pengar rullar in som de ska för Mvp
Efter helgens topplacering i WCS seglar cashkungen Mvp upp på plats nummer ett över de spelare som vunnit mest pengar i StarCraft II.

Det går bra nu. Eller snarare dåligt för Jang 'MC' Min Chul som endast slutade i topp-32 i WCS Korea. I dag kunde han se sig omsprungen på av Jeong "Mvp" Jong Hyeon, när Incredible Miracle-proffset plockade hem den delade tredjeplatsen i de globala finalerna av WCS första säsong.

I och med tredjeplatsen och prissumman på 10 000 dollar kunde Mvp under dagen passera MC på resultatsajten SC2Earnings lista över vilka spelare som vunnit mest pengar i StarCraft II.

Hack i häl på legendaren Flash
Enligt SC2Earnings konkurrent Esportsearnings, som räknar vinstpengar inom alla spel, har Mvp precis även passerat Brood War-legendaren Lee "Jaedong" Jae Dong och är nu hack i häl på den andre Brood War-legendaren Lee "Flash" Young Ho. Dock återstår drygt hela 60 000 dollar innan Mvp kan ta igen Flash försprång.

Först på listan ligger FPS-legendaren Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel med 454 000 dollar. Främst från spelet Painkiller.

NaNiwa i topp-20
I toppen av SC2Earnings lista är det tomt på foreigners. Ilyes "Stephano" Satouri hamnar som första icke-korean på fjärdeplats, därefter innehar de två polackerna Grzegorz "MaNa" Komincz och Artur "Nerchio" Bloch plats 15 respektive 16. Svenskproffset Johan "Naniwa" Lucchesi kommer först på 20:e plats. Tätt efter, på plats 24 ligger sedan Marcus "ThorZaIN" Eklöf. Men därefter gör svenskrepresentationen ett hopp och inte förrän på plats 49 hittas Jeffrey "Sjow" Brusi.

INoVation tar revansch efteräsen
INoVations nerver håller - nollar sOs och skrattar hela vägen till banken efter att ha bärgat 40 000 USD och WCS Season 1-bucklan!

För en stund sedan avgjordes den första säsongen av WCS och vilken avslutning det blev! Utöver de båda Soulkey (Z) och INoVation (T) på vars en sida av slutspelsträdet var även den europeiska mästaren Mvp (T) samt protoss-innovatören sOs (P) med och tampades om en finalplats.

Efter två rafflande semifinaler stod det klart att och CODE S-vinnaren Soulkey blivit besegrad av sOs knappa 3-2 i en extremt välspelad och jämn kamp. I den andra semifinalen mellan världens kanske två bästa Terran-spelare, Mvp och INoVation blev det minst lika jämnt. När krutröken lagt sig och GG hamrats kunde INoVation ta av sig sina glasögon, torka svetten ur pannan och konstatera att han var klar för den första WCS-finalen någonsin.

I finalen mellan INoVation och sOs var det aldrig riktigt jämnt, tossen försökte och försökte men det ville sig inte riktigt då INoVation levde upp till sitt namn och lyckades oavsett vilken unitcomp som kastades på honom både överleva och utmanövrera sin motståndare mer än en gång.

För vinsten och revanschen efter den snöpliga förlusten i (Soulkey reverse ALL-killade honom) får INoVation $40 000 medan tvåan får nöja sig med hälften.

Slutplaceringar WCS World Finals Season 1
1. INoVation (T) $40 000
2. sOs (P) $20 000
3/4. Soulkey (Z) $10,000
3/4. Mvp (T) $10,000

Fatal1ty dammar av bössan och gör comeback
Fatal1ty utmanas och det satsas NT$ 300 000 (cirka 73 000 SEK) på en match!

Jonathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel är en av esporthistoriensoch världens kanske bästa och mest kända spelare, FPS-gurun har vunnit en drös tunga titlar (12 stycken världstitlar), och har efter sin aktiva karriär verkat för att främja esporten.

Det sista spelet som Fatal1ty gav en ärlig chans var Painkiller och det spelet hade sin absoluta peak under CPL World Tour och strax därefter försvann både Fatal1ty och spelet. Men nu har legendaren valt att damma av bössan och acceptera en utmaning från sin gamla sparringpartner relic, en match Painkiller som OCZ valt att stoppa in NT$300 000 till relic om han vinner!
    "Johnathan Wendel often likes to state that “FATAL1TY MEANS GAMING.” With that said, Fatal1ty has answered the challenge, and will take on relic at Taiwan’s landmark Taipei 101 building on Thursday, June 6, 2013.

    In his first professional match of consequence since 2007, will Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel be ready to live up to his title as the greatest gamer in history? And obliterate relic? -OR- will relic be able to do it again? - And beat Fatal1ty? … And take home a prize of NT$300,0000."
Hela spektaklet kommer att gå av stapeln i Taiwan där Jonthan varit verksam med sin gaminggearutveckling och då i Taipei 101 Building på den svenska nationaldagen.



Ett rågammalt klipp, nåja (2002) med fatal1ty och Thresh från techprogrammet "The Screen Savers". Vad sägs som lite färska(?) Q3 tips från mästarna?
