Intel Extreme Masters Begins!

For all the 3v3 arena fans out there, don’t forget to check out some of the world’s finest beginning Friday, August 22nd, live from Liepzig, Germany!

Hafu, Rhaegyn and Glick at MLG OrlandoMost of the teams in this first event are European, but there are a few US Teams in the mix. First off, we have the infamous “Hafu” trying to lead her new Team Fnatic partners to victory. Being the only competitive WoW player of the female variety, all the eyes are on her. Will she be able to lead her team to another first place finish, further humiliating the MoB Godfather, just as she did in MLG Orlando? Only time will tell.

Personally, I will be keeping my eyes on the new Pandemic Blue team, featuring former team MVPs: Ohnoes, Kintt and Caal. These players have proven themselves as team leaders in the last year of live tournament play, but will they mesh well in their first appearance as a live setting? Though they have made their marks as mage, priest, and druid respectively, all three of the players are capable of playing many classes at a very high level so I can’t wait to see what tricks they will have up their sleeves.Kintt from Pandemic Blue

You can check out the first games at 15:00 (+1 GMT) or 9:00AM EST Friday. Just make sure you have your Octoshape Plugin ready.

Edit: Updated the stream link to point to the WoW Stream instead of the basic event stream which is covering mostly CS.
