The grid was inspired by GCS #3!

It might look a bit confusing at the beginning, but once it's filled with player names it will be clear for everyone.


#2 09/02/2017 - 23:23:24
hottest grid I have ever seen tbh



#3 13/02/2017 - 12:49:51
Grid mistake? Sonik should be in R1 of Losers, not R2! Please fix.


#4 13/02/2017 - 19:01:04
It's not a mistake.

The middle area is for the finals.


#5 27/02/2017 - 02:17:28
RapiNG has understandably decided to take a fw against kangArOO due to his compulsive absences.

Wasting our time is not welcome.


#6 05/03/2017 - 03:03:07
The match between Sonik and kangArOO was a very good show. When I decided to host Showcase I hoped for matches like this where micromanagement and quick decision-making would play the key role. Well done!

no nappi


#7 10/03/2017 - 23:00:57
Toxi human, can we have an explanation plz, even if it's a short one^^


#8 10/03/2017 - 23:14:55
What would you like to know?


#9 10/03/2017 - 23:20:23
#after 14 years of warcraft, he finally picks a different race than elf. That makes me giggle. Guess he got forced by Adamchik :) 


#10 11/03/2017 - 02:34:53
Did u force him to play another race, did he decide himself to play human.... things like that


#11 11/03/2017 - 05:13:33
I planned to keep this tournament elf-free (at least in terms of "roc elf", since Sonik's TFT elf is something else), so Toxi offered his Human and Undead.


#12 11/03/2017 - 22:57:00
ok, thanx, does it mean he will play undead after Heke?

Concerning sonik, he looks more and more like a roc elf to me, still something else. For how long tho?


#13 15/03/2017 - 21:52:27
Better make it human clean. no1 wanna see the 0 micro human noobs winning cause op race nr.1

rainy will win

I understand the frustration regarding the no-obs wish during the last two matches, but it is a player's right and I can't do anything about it.

Hello everyone, Can you tell us, the date of next matches, would be a pleasure to watch them. Bye ! gl hf !


#17 29/04/2017 - 23:41:44
Follow the headline announcements. The tournament will be resumed shortly.


#18 08/05/2017 - 19:45:47
hm, any news?


#19 11/05/2017 - 20:02:53
Pawlak fixed his Warcraft yesterday (not entirely though), Sonik didn't.


#20 30/05/2017 - 18:09:12
The tournament is suspended until all the 1.28-caused issues are resolved.


#21 23/06/2017 - 03:01:11
i wonder if the new patch makes raping vs sonik possible now :D


#22 27/07/2017 - 17:50:21
According to Sonik, he still can't install 1.28.


#23 27/07/2017 - 21:51:04
he might try this:
but this is all so weird to me, considering that he's regularly playing on netease, which is patched to 1.28


#24 28/07/2017 - 16:33:35
Do u know what exact version Netease uses now?


#25 28/07/2017 - 20:59:45
the platform message states its 1.28.0, tho i play there on 1.28.5


#26 29/07/2017 - 03:39:55
And Sonik says it uses 1.26.

I'm confused.


#27 29/07/2017 - 04:55:43
LOL no way


#28 29/07/2017 - 17:27:48
He adds that his stream proves it.


#29 29/07/2017 - 21:42:28
ok nvm, ive just checked the game path myself and u can actually play there with 1.26 as well zzz


#30 21/08/2017 - 02:58:08
The RapiNG - Sonik match was hosted outside Battle Net due to Sonik's issues with the latter. LoveStruck kindly converted the replays to 1.28 but afaik the maps have to be renamed accordingly due to the crazy hostbot's settings. At least the match finally happened. I will add the link to the match in Sonik's recorded stream soon.


#31 21/08/2017 - 23:28:00
Congratulation to Sonik, in less then a year he became the best Reign of chaos player. He also showed us bear could work in Roc and that elf doesn't have to be boring.


#32 22/08/2017 - 03:24:42
on a side note tho, he's still pretty bad in elf mirrors as he loses regularly to most of the good remaining players (raping, toxi, heke, schappi, pawlak). but yea props for his refreshing and eintertaining playstyle


#33 22/08/2017 - 14:36:50
Of course its good to see someone playing elf with a unusual tactic.. but in fact we are talking about the best race, reign of chaos offers. You can Play in 4 different ways against almost every race and still its fucking hard to beat even mistakes are inculded. No other race allows that. ( Talons tech, dryads tech, the normal archer dh way, and now even mass bears ). Prerequisite is, your not a full boon.


#34 22/08/2017 - 18:42:32
In my opinion comparing players of different races in a game as imbalanced as RoC is very difficult.

Human's needs good multitasking, Undead needs perfect timings, Orc can't win without micro (not referring to imbalanced games). On the other hand, elf can play totally freely as Tim mentioned.

Personally when I am watching Sonik's elf I don't have that annoying oh-he-wins-just-because-he's-elf impression we all know so well though. His micro, macro, multitasking and decision-making are all very good and required to play in the way he does.

He got the best race in the tournament, but his little experience in RoC evens it out in some way.

The tournament isn't over yet, he might remeet RapiNG in the GF and each of them has beat the other earlier in the tournament.


#35 24/08/2017 - 16:01:58
yoyo i see still a lot of noobs in wc3 around; elf best race HAHAHAH noobs. Human is so much better. just compare matchups on each ladder map vs each race. youll see human got the most advantages. 4 different tactics? you have 1-2x tactic (depend on matchup) and all races got that. humans need good multitask? the only thing where human must have "decent" multitasking (wouldnt even say it does require more than undeads need) is at the start cause his eco is vulnerable. rest of the human skill EVERY 30% rt gamer can do it. just look all the good human roc players... i cant remember a single good one. why? cause there was none. its a absolutly fail designed noob race. fe, survive harass, creep heros, s click army in fight, micro heros in fight, win game. about undead i agree, i think we all agree its the most skilled and worst class in 1on1 roc, you only win if youre playing 2x better than your enemy, usually. orc need micro? compared to humans maybe yes, he need to do a bit more than s click army. but please youre saying elf can play freely and orc does need micro? elf is after ud the micro class nr.2 cause you need to micro your archer or youll lose the game on a higher level. (especially in the early-mid) while as orc you towercreep the map, go expo and try to lame around. this race does require only skill on non towercreep maps.

opaw the guy who still lives in the past game knowledge wise, stop heavily marjuana consume!
'elf needs micro on higher skill cap!!!!' aye.... that 'micro' you're talking about is simple unit control and game knowledge, but whatsoever!

it depends all on the game style.. gotta agree that hu is the 'best' race but also requires a high skill cap to compete effectively on a high level,with heavy micro/macro influenced game style see LNo's raw skill f.e.
not talking about lame crap.

Stop dreaming, nightelf is by far the most easy class to play so many birdshit players with relative low skill cap beat way better players.


#36 29/08/2017 - 21:23:08
I think calling Sonik the best RoC player is insane. kudos beating orc bots though, I for one would never have assumed that people would keep playing hh/raiders against bears after losing 9 out of 10 games with that style... 
orc has all the tools required to beat bears easily (hence why noone developed this style before), I'll let our two brainmasters figure it out before the final.

tip: it's a unit you're both going to use in your magnificent mirrors to come.


#37 29/08/2017 - 22:02:04
sorry for my mistaken comment, I have since been informed by my personal assistant that unfortunately, rainymonday has been defeated and we will not enjoy a half dozen of wyv mirrors.


#38 05/09/2017 - 17:11:19
marco the game didnt changed, cause there are no patches. my game knowledge is still up2date. this simple unit control is called micro. backing of low hp units and go in again, while humans do what? s click army, doesnt matter if you lose your whole army, heros carry anyway.

what gamestyle? there is no "gamestyle" all roc players playing the same, cause other tactics are useless. heavy micro/marco hahahaha! like i said the only hard part of human is the start, rest of the humangame you need a shit. tell me one good elf losing archer vs creeps? pretty much all human abuser did (jawohl-, pumpa etc) no offence to lno but if i talk about highlevel im not talking about players like him. hes okay, but eastplayers was never that good like northrend gamers, they are 2 classes behind. birdshirt players with relative low skill cap can beat way better players on every race cause thats roc. luck is a big part of the game, 1 item can decide.

face it; human is the biggest noob race in roc, only people without honor are playing this race.


#39 11/09/2017 - 01:14:44
sonik is the best player of this tournament


#40 18/09/2017 - 01:24:04


#41 18/09/2017 - 01:25:38
lololo half a dozen of wyws mirrors : ))

too bad we ve seen too many dozens of archers mirrors too :/)


#42 18/09/2017 - 01:26:10
mirrors suck D


#43 21/09/2017 - 00:55:49
As is the tradition, Rocarena not only awards tournament winners but also best performers and this was the turn of Sonik.
He has been named so by myself and HB, even though I have to admit this was a very controversial decision.

Personally, it was a 55/45 situation between him and Raping:
- Since our very first award to the best performer, we have always granted it to the most entertaining player
- Sonik has been the most aggressive and entertaining player throughout the whole tournament by far
- He brought many variations to the current elf metagame: huntresses and immolation against human, bears against orc, hippogryphs against wyverns and gargoyles

Though, these other points stand true as well:
- He played several games against wyverns and didn't manage to adapt properly
- He committed some gross mistakes which made us reconsider a bit his overall performance (replay IDs 32350, 32421 and 32941)
- His 6/1 outbursts during the grand final (IDs 32941 and 32943)
- Elf is the race with the highest potential for aggressivity and flexibility and there is a weird trend which spotlights that (e.g., Toxigrinta best performer and Pawlak best single performance during Race Masters 6)
- Raping has been the best player in terms of micromanagement and map awareness

These are the ideas who stood at the basis of taking Raping into consideration for this award, but in the end the positive remarks prevailed and we also came to the conclusion that part of Sonik's mistakes were also due to his unique gamestyle.


#44 21/09/2017 - 08:02:36
Wouldn't find better words than this extraordinary gentleman.

Respect for RapiNG for being undeniably the best player throughout the tournament and showcasing outstanding focus and props to Sonik for pushing some boundaries and scoring some wows and ohs.

Only recently the respective games of both players became more familiar for some and I'm glad the tournament had its role in it.



#45 23/09/2017 - 01:04:18
got to watch final stream which was nice but man that language and screaming :D anyway thx for streaming, it was nice to see 40 ppl watching roc finals
