World Cyber Games 2007 USA Finals

The World Cyber Games USA finals for this year ended on Sunday, and it was definitely one with its share of upsets. Thankfully this year I was able to watch a live stream on Epileptic Gaming's website since many of the hosts were working there casting the matches. I was excited to see Dead or Alive 4 players Master and Vanessa since I followed both of them closely during the first season of the CGS. Master, unfortunately lost and in his place Perfect Legend and Black Mamba will be representing Team USA. Surprisingly the epic Counter Strike 1.6 team NY3D were not present this year; even though they have been the defending national champs for two years now. Representing Team USA this year for CS 1.6 is team Emazing Gaming. Ch0mper, arguably one of the best Project Gotham Racing 3 players in the world will represent USA once more. Ch0mper is coming off a successful first season in the CGS with the Chicago Chimera. Earlier in the summer, Ch0mper and his teammate JasonX went undefeated in regular and post-season play, helping the Chimera to win the CGS Region 1 title and also receive the MVP. Team USA has much on its shoulders this year with the WCG Grand Finals being held in Seattle this year. Last year Team Korea swept the Starcraft event and led the world in total medals with two golds, one silver, and one bronze. Last year Team USA won only one gold medal with Ch0mper winning PGR3. This year USA plans to give the world their best with a new CS 1.6 team, 2 new DOA4 champs, two dominating players in the new Command and Conquer 3 ,and Ch0mper returning to defend his world title. The Grand Finals are going to be held October 3-7 with at least 70 countries in attendance.
