wNv wins ESL Extreme Masters Continental Asia

INSIDER ESPORTS – ESL Extreme Masters Continental Asia comes to a close with wNv taking down WeMade FOX, formally eSTRO, in two games.

A long weekend filled with VISA issues, teams dropping out and more has finally finished with wNv taking down WeMade FOX in two games.

wNv and WeMade FOX were the two favorites by the time the event started, but WeMade FOX was considered the better team.  Group play did not finish very well for them, as they embarrassingly tied Chinese a4u.  They did, however, beat wNv in the upper bracket finals 16-13, though many hadn't expected such a close game, especially before the group play.  wNv then had to play one more game – the lower bracket finals – against TitaNs, which they won 16-7.  This set up a rematch in the Grand Finals.

Few expected wNv to win the Finals, but strong play by wNv, along with We Made FOX’s instability, led to a dominate performance; wNv held them to a combined eleven rounds.

wNv receives $25,000 and a spot at the global finals.  WeMade FOX brings in $10,000 and a spot at the Global Finals.  The Global Finals will take place at CeBIT in Hannover, Germany from March 6th to March 8th.

I agree w/ Jon, hopefully they can repeat this win within the international world. Both eStro and wNv are looking very good.
