After some server issues and delays, the Dreamhack Winter qualifiers were played quietly (no stream or VOD) between Steej
myself versus the Sac boys (Westyy, Murdor, Ultimat8 and Centrelink
). It was a close game and the Sac Boys put up a great fight, but lost in the end. As I was a substitute on the day and am not able to prepare for the main event, I have declined to attend DHW. Fraze
were both also unable to go.
Given these circumstances, in cooperation with the DHW admins we are excited to announce Kevin "Strenx
" Baeza from Alliance
will be joining with Steej, Zenaku and Astroboy to form a team. Stratigically speaking Kevin is a great fit for our team with experience playing Nyx/Doom Guy, and being capable of dealing massive damage on these characters. He has immediately asked to get involved in some practice games on Australian servers and is taking the competition as seriously as possible. For anyone concerned about an import player please keep in mind that we talked to other Australians first, and that Strenx is a great fit for the team. There will be many more opportunities for everyone in the community in the future.

We also recieved some great news that ZenAku
will be able to participate in the BYOC Duel tournament, so be sure to watch and cheer him on as he gets to match up against some big names in Quake (including Strenx, Noctis, Fazz). The BYOC Duel should be really exciting, and a great way to get warmed up for watching the main event. For more updates about Dreamhack Winter be sure to stay tuned in to 4sg.
