by chris@gameclucks.com

“Valve’s International Dota 2 Championships 2012 will be held at PAX Prime in Seattle, running August 31 through September 2.” (taken from http://www.joystiq.com/2012/05/10/the-international-dota-2-championships-invade-pax-prime/ )

For a few days to a week (maybe two weeks?) before the DotA2 event at PAX, Complexity will be using GameClucks as their HQ to prep for this event!

Complexity over the last few days has give GameClucks a couple of shout outs in regards to this.
Check these out!!

Fluunstuff gives us a shout at the bottom of this blog!!

At the end of this online chat with the whole team, they give us a shout out also in regards to the boot camp (at about the 27:30 mark).

We can not wait for Complexity to get us some official dates and then come on in!

Thank you to Chappy, the teams Manager and a DotA/HoN/LoL players from GC’s past!

Here is a bit of it though:

Few tournaments in the circuit would allow a player as god-awful as myself to join in the fun, even when I present to them an entrance fee comprised entirely of United States Dollars. Gameclucks, however, opened their hearts to my plight and let me enter the Bronze and Silver league bracket!

I walked into the familiar LAN center, Gameclucks, on an uncharacteristically beautiful Saturday afternoon in Seattle. Gameclucks is not your average LAN center, no. It is home to the most prominent eSports professionals in the Pacific Northwest, often housing tournaments for games such as StarCraft II, Marvel vs. Capcom, Super Smash Bros., League of Legends, and everything in between that can be considered a game, and played competitively. I was ridiculously early, and found the very first computer in the place to set up my Razer gaming gear. I plopped down next to aspiring StarCraft II progamer, MYiSony, and watched him plow through game after game of Zerg versus Zerg, while I chatted with the other nerd patrons. The day was already looking bright as more potential competitors streamed through the door.

As for a little background on the Gameclucks venue, they are sponsored, like myself, by NOS Energy Drinks, and welcome a barrage of Master and Grandmaster-level players from all around the Northwest of the US and Canada, many of which are on professional gaming teams like LighT, My Intent, and Legit Gaming. Caliber, Golden, and KawaiiRice from Team LighT frequent the venue, and many are GSL Code A contenders, and superior professionals who are utterly exciting to watch compete… and they’re super sweet people to boot! Sound impressive enough yet? Well, that is just their StarCraft repertoire!”

The article continues and has some replays of her streamed matches and, unfortunately, an interview with me (Chris), on camera hahah.
