A look back on 2014

Postby  BlotchedyDooDah » Wed Dec 31, 2014 7:55 pm

2014 has yielded quite a number of AoC events. New players have appeared. Old players have returned. I look back at the AoC events that have unfolded this year.

SY Nations Cup
April-August 2014
Winners: (china) China A
(china) [_SY_]Yo__
(china) [_SY_]NO_23
(china) [_SY_]Fengxin (Paladin)
(china) [_SY_]james__
(china) [_SY_]Air_Abu_
(china) [_SY_]yinghua_ (Lovecheng)
(china) [_SY_]moments
(china) [_SY_]_SY_

Runners-Up: (brazil) Brazil A
(brazil) [TyRanT]RiuT
(brazil) [TyRanT]F1Re
(brazil) GoKu
(brazil) St4rk

3rd Place: (argentina) Argentina A
(argentina) Fedex
(argentina) PaTiN
(argentina) Juan
(argentina) Nicov
(argentina) Gary
(argentina) Mago

The SY Nations Cup was a thrilling event, with all the world's best players taking part. China A were unstoppable, beating Brazil A 5-1 in the Final, as well as Argentina A (4:2) and Canada A (4:0) along the way. My beloved United Kingdom team even made it past the Group Stage, which is more than could be said for the Football World Cup. I can confidently say that the entire AoC community is looking forward to the next Nations Cup - next year hopefully!

China A vs Dream Team: http://www.aoczone.net/viewtopic.php?f=879&t=104135
The Best Games: http://www.aoczone.net/viewtopic.php?f=865&t=103559

Masters of Arena 2
Winner: (canada) [TyRanT]slam
Runner-Up: (argentina) Fedex

Masters of Arena 2 was an interesting tournament to watch. Lots of different strategies were used in different situations, some very fundamental, others very controversial. There were many surprises, such as Edie being knocked out a lot earlier than expected.

The Final: http://www.aoczone.net/viewtopic.php?f=894&t=104232

Top Experts League #4
Winner: (vietnam) [TyRanT]BacT
2nd: (china) [_SY_]Yo__
3rd: (canada) [TyRanT]slam
4th: (bosnia) Hasan

TEL #4 brought together four of the World's top players to compete for the $1000 prize. The Grand Final between BacT and Yo was a thrilling climax with such a prize at stake.

Top Experts League #5
Winner: (norway) TheViper
2nd: (brazil) [TyRanT]RiuT
3rd: (germany) [TyRanT]JorDan_23
4th: (china) [_SY_]Yo__

TEL #5 was arguably even more of a thriller than TEL #4. The same prize was at stake, between arguably better players than before. Unfortunately, BacT was involved in a car accident and had to be replaced by Yo.

The Arabian Conquest
Winner: (czech) Lojza_
2nd: (vietnam) [TyRanT]BacT
3rd: (brazil) St4rk

I loved The Arabian Conquest. The huge variety of non-mirror match-ups made the tournament very interesting as players has to use a massive range of different tactics. Lojza_ shocked everyone, beating BacT, Emin and slam along the way to glory.

And, of course, we have the current tournament, War is Coming, which is not finished but still credits a mention.

Hope you enjoyed,

This is just a new account. I had another one previously (not a smurf though, just decided to change name on Voobly and carried it over to AoCZone)
