This event was originally planned to be a clan-war with HDO & LA taking on JB & WFC. Unfortunately, none of the clans had enough players to field a full team, so we changed the format of the event, opening it up to anyone who wanted to participate. Captains were chosen to select teams and cities. The cities (as they were originally selected) were:
Because we only had 12 players available when we started selecting teams, only three teams were formed. However, when more players started showing up, we allowed them to form a forth city. And that city was…
Once everyone started joining their cities and the game got underway, there was some shuffling of players. In Skopje, RespectMe had to leave and was replaced by Stig. In Bishkek, JML22 somehow ended up getting replaced by War-machine. (Once the game got going, War-machine failed to reapply, so Lejeune filled his spot.)
Building time started at about 9:50pm EST, with a ten minute grace period to ensure that everyone had plenty of time to complete their cities. At 10:00 the match started, and just three minutes later Kuala Lumpur claimed the first orb of the game, taking out Mango. (Apparently Mango wasn't paying attention to the chat and thought the grace period was still going.)
From that point on it was all Skopje. Merloch orbed Kuala Lumpur at 10:07, narrowing the playing field down to just two cities. Then, at 10:09, Skopje managed to orb Bishkek as well, clearing the last of their competition from the map. And so, less than 10 minutes into playing time, Skopje managed to claim victory of the Exhibition Game.
Congratulations to Merloch, Redxkingz, DoubleB83, and Stig!!!
