YouGamers will be posting news and commentary from the Assembly Winter 2007
video and computer gaming festival held on 27th-29th May in Tampere,
Finland as it happens.
First Pro gaming results: in a World Cyber Games 2007 pre-qualifier
tournament, the Warcraft 2007 final match was a tough fight with
potential for controversy. Joona "Konna" Parikka got disconnected from
the game late in the first round, but after lengthy consideration
between both players and judges, he was deemed to have lost the round
before the disconnect. In the end, Juha-Matti "Satiini" Backström took
the match 2-1 from a very game Konna.
"Konna" commented: "I had a lot more fun in my earlier matches
tonight." He and Backström know each other's style well from earlier
encounters. "The competition was good this time, and I enjoyed playing
in this high-level tournament", said Backström. "Satiini" is on fire -
keep an eye on him as the WCG 2007 tournaments continue!"
