Shase StarCraft

Shase StarCraft

Big name player in the local, and also lately international StarCraft II Scene, Shase, has taken it upon himself to set up his very own Starcraft II website. Shase, being his modest self, doesn’t claim to be of a professional level, (Which is a silly notion, we all know he is and he can’t really even begind to hide it at all!) but still feels that his insights and experience is enough to be of assistance to many people out there, and thus, Shase Starcraft was born!

What makes this site so great? Well Shase presents his information in an easy to understand way, a way that absolutely anyone can absorb and appreciate. You don’t need to know every single little technicallity to benefit from his advice, you don’t need to read the piece 20 times over to make sense of it, you don’t need to spend hours watching tutorial videos, instead you just pop in for a quick read, and you absolutely don’t need to spend hours crunching numbers for it to help you out.

There is a lot to be seen and to make the deal even sweeter, if you feel you have something special that you want to share with your fellow StarCrafters and were just waiting for the right place to put it, why not send it in to Shase and if he feels it up-to-scratch he will publish it on the site! All that said, are you even still reading this or have you already clicked the link to his site? Well, if you are still here, his latest article, titled ‘Tips and Tricks’ focuses on various little things that StarCraft II players of any level might well not have known that might very well also help them out a little! If anything, that’s a great place to start.

Check the site out above, leave a comment of appreciation and save that one to bookmarks because you will most definitely want to visit it again! 😀

Electronic Sports Zone 2011 Season

In some local news, the guys from over at Electronic Sports Zone have officially announced their 2011 Season. According to their website, the five main games hosted will be the following:

Call of Duty 4 (PC) [5v5]
Heroes of Newerth (PC) [5v5]
Quake Live (PC) [1v1]
Counter-Strike 1.6 (PC) [5v5]
StarCraft II (PC) [1v1]

Yes indeed, Starcraft II absolutely had to be there! They let us know that this list of games will definitely be being played, regardless of number of teams participating. Next, we have a list of games that could be played, depending on community interest.

Call of Duty: Black Ops (PC) [5v5]
FIFA 11 (PS3) [1v1]
Guitar Hero (Xbox360) [1v1]
Team Fortress 2 (PC) [6v6]

The 2011 ESZ season will consist of 3 legs of 7 weeks each. There will be a Premier Division and an Amateur division with a possibility of extra divisions. Divisions will consist of 8 teams, meaning each team will play 7 matches, that’s 1 match per week. The top half and bottom half of each division will have playoffs for the next leg.

In the more interesting part of this announcement, to me at least, ESZ has also said that players will be interviewed on ESZ-TV before the event and between their matches. Also, the entire event will be streamed on ESZ-TV and will be recorded and included in New Age Gaming Magazine’s DVDs. Lastly each leg of the league will be followed by a LAN event with only the top 4 in the premier division being invited to the LAN event and the prizes for some of these events will include trips to events such as ESWC, Dreamhack and Kode5. ESZ have said that currently Dreamhack Winter is confirmed and that they are still negotiating with sponsors for other international events.

Things are still being finalized but it does look like 2011 is definitely set to be a big year for eSports in South Africa! Bring it on! You can read all about the 2011 Season of ESZ in the links provided below, enjoy!

Shase Wins

After a weekend of Starcraft II excitement PolarfluKe: ALL-IN has finally been concluded and we have our winner. bvd’Shase managed to take the Ventus player Pandatank down with a pretty clean 3 to 0. Although the protoss vs protoss finals were indeed nail-biting stuff, Shase just proved the more experienced player in the end. Shase walks away with a nice R700 from MyGaming.co.za and Pandatank R300. There were also T-Shirts and Caps for the top 8 players along with two spot prizes. If you’re looking for replays from the event you can find them over at PolarfluKe’s site in the next couple of hours and if VODs are your thing you will be able to find them over at my YouTube channel soon!
