ACON4 Final - The Gamers



The public were allowed into certain parts of the event. Gaming is very big in China and it almost seemed like we were at a football match when one of the gamers performed a perfect strategic move against his opponent. How long do you think it will be before gaming competitions like this will be presented on EPSN? Not long I'd imagine.



Here is one of the China government officials keeping an eye on the proceedings. No messing around here folks - China takes cheating very seriously and they made it known.



Here we see Phil from Australia battling it out. There is a reason his hand is blurred so much - he is so damn QUICK!



Here some of the gamers discuss a previous game as they joke over one of the replays.



Jonathan "Fatal1ty" tries his hand at a RTS compared to his usual FPS for something different. He played the UK champ (TAG-BoNd), and lost - for once! I'm sure Jonathan would see the funny side to this after beating myself and many others at UT2004 at least 12 - 0 a few days earlier in Taiwan during Computex.
