Showdown in Chengdu – Preparation

TSP WCG

This past weekend the WCG National Finals were held in New York City.  The finals were where teams earned the right to represent in USA in games like Counterstrike, Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne, Starcraft, and more at the WCG Grand Finals  a.k.a. the “Olympics of Videogames.”  In light of my partner TorcH winning the Wise Star 2 Mob!le Challenge from Samsung, we have been making preparations for our trip to Chengdu, China with the rest of the winners.

Hoping to make myself useful along the way, I will be doing coverage for my friends at NoobToob.tv!  I have also applied to become a WCG referee, which would allow me to get up close to the action during those all-important final matches.  Keep an eye on my Twitter: http://twitter.com/SeltzerPlease for more information leading up to and all during the event!

TSP WiseStar2

TorcH, meanwhile, has been practicing hard at his game, Wise Star 2, which involves matching groups of planets or activating bombs to eliminate them from the board.  Each space on the board must be cleared at least once to complete the level.  In a competitive challenge, the first player to cause an explosion in every cube of the board wins.   For a touch of humor, here’s a shot of TorcH looking unnecessarily furious during his post-victory interview with WCG’s Rivington:
