Shout Out: cArn´s Theory of Counter-Strike

It’s Friday which means it’s time to post some awesome videos of games, gamers, and eSports! We’re going to start off today with two videos entitled cArn´s Theory of Counter-Strike. These two feature cArn from Team FNATIC talking about the fine details of competitive Counter-Strike. They’re great videos and each are about 30 minutes long so you’ll get a large helping of raw CS information. It’ll leave a good taste in your mouth. Enjoy!

ESL: Intel Extreme Masters 2010

Another exciting International gaming event has concluded, this time it was the Intel Extreme Masters, American Championship Finals. Challengers played Counter-Strike, StarCraft 2, and Quake Live. From the little I was able to catch, seemed like some quality matches. But I have to say the streams weren’t helped by some of the announcers. Isn’t IEM pretty big, with decent funding? They should spend a little more time finding good shout-casters. But otherwise seemed cool.

Check out this page for the match results and prizes.

World Cyber Games Grand Final (2010) – Coverage

In case you missed the headlines, the WCG Grand Finals are happening today! They just started a few hours ago and we’ve already seen a few exciting matches. Evil Geniuses, a prominent US team took on Face2Face from France, and won the first match of the WCG. Two StarCraft matches followed, one between Flash and iNfeRnaL, and another between Goojila and legend. Next we saw two Warcraft matches between Lyn and Fly100%, & TED- and Happy, finally leading up to the FIFA matches happening NOW. Don’t miss this crazy gamer event, it’s only going on Sept. 30 – Oct. 3rd and then it’s over for a whole year! And just because we’re such nice guys here at Spawn Room, we’ll be sure to keep this article updated with as many helpful links as possible, whether that be stats, ladders, bootleg streams, articles, etc. <(^^,)> Here’s some to start it off:


QuadV is streaming

WCG Broadcast Schedule (on Cadred)

But before I close this article, there is one piece of bullshit I’d like to talk about. Unfortunately for most gamers, the official WCG Streams are PAY-TO-VIEW! Yes you heard me! If you want to watch the official Live coverage of the games, you’re going to have to pull out a credit card. Why? Who the fuck knows. I suppose because they see MLG do it and think they can make some bank the same way. But what they fail to realize is that MLG has a much tighter, niche group of dedicated followers that are actually willing to pay for those streams, whereas WCG is about a global gaming community, reminiscent of the Olympics! By charging a fee, they are instantly alienating thousands of gamers who may have gotten drawn into the kick ass world of eSports. It’s unfortunate.

If you want to hear another person discuss this BS in a much better, more comedic fashion, check out the latest Live On Three episode with DJ Wheat. Funny as shit.
