StarCraft News

After many days of voting, SC:BW has been named one of the official games for WCG 2006 in Monza, Italy.

Recently, it was announced on the official website of the Samsung European Cyber Games that SC:BW would not be included in the competetion. This worried many, including myself who began to think that SC:BW would no longer be a part of the tournament. However, after the voting came to close, our beloved game triumphed once again.

Official Games
StarCraft: Brood War
Warcraft III: Frozen Throne
Half-Life: Counter-Strike 1.6
Warhammer 40,000: Winter Assault
FIFA Soccer 06

Press Release
The World Cyber Games Committee today announced the eight titles that will serve as official games for the 2006 World Cyber Games. The six PC games and 2 console games includes: StarCraft: Brood War (PC); Warcraft��: Frozen Throne (PC); Half-Life: Counter-Strike 1.6 (PC); Warhammer 40,000: Winter Assault (PC); FIFA Soccer 06(PC); Need for Speed: Most Wanted (PC); Dead or Alive 4 (Xbox 360) and Project Gotham Racing 3 (Xbox 360).

These will serve as the official events at the 2006 Grand Final in Monza, Italy this October. Organizers are particularly excited by the inclusion of Project Gotham Racing on the Xbox 360 since the Grand Final event will be held at the world famous F1 Autodromo in Monza, known throughout the racing world as the premiere racing facility on the Formula 1 circuit.

In addition, the Counter-Strike competition has been changed from Source to 1.6 to facilitate better operation of tournaments leading up to the Grand Final. This move comes as a result of player feedback on the World Cyber Games website following last year��s successful event in Singapore.

Meanwhile, the World Cyber Games Committee also announced the staging of WCG Pan-regional Championships in Europe, Asia and the Americas, to promote the spread of the e-Sports industry globally.

The WCG 2006 Euro Championship begins March 9 at CeBit 2006 with about 200 gamers from 20 European countries. The WCG 2006 Asian Championship is scheduled to debut at the PC Show 2006 in Singapore, the biggest IT Exhibition in the region, in June and WCG 2006 Pan-American Championship is slated for the Electronic Gaming Show 2006 in Mexico, the largest game show in Central and South America.

The WCG 2006 Grand Final will be held October 18th through 22nd at F1 Autodromo, in Monza, Italy

This is definetely great news for the SC:BW community and I hope to see you in Italy.
