WEM: We Made Fox Wins WEM 2010

BY Andrew Miesner / November 7, 2010

In a surprising outcome, We Made Fox have proved victorious in the Grand Finals of the World e-Sports Masters 2010 tournament being held in Hangzou, China.

As one of the few teams representing the Asian region in this tournament, We Made Fox battled their way through the Upper Bracket before losing to SK-Gaming in the Upper Bracket Finals. In the lower bracket, WMF took on the Polish powerhouse, the Frag Executors, on de_inferno where they managed to convincingly take down one of the favorites to win the championship.

In the Grand Finals, SK and WMF squared off on both de_nuke and de_tuscan in a best of three match up to determine the champions. On de_nuke, SK came out firing as they took the pistol round and looked to be in perfect shape to take the half from WMF. Unfortunately for them, WMF came prepared as they stacked the ramp and countered the aggressive SK push. After this round, SK only managed to grab one more round in the half, falling to WMF by the score of 13-2. The second half was all WMF as they secured the 3 rounds needed to take the first map of the series.

On the second map of de_tuscan, both teams appeared to have a hold on their opponents as they traded rounds, coming out even at the end of the half, with WMF barely coming out on top by the score of 8-7. In the second half, We Made Fox proved why they were the new team to beat as they dominated SK, successfully negating any strat that SK wanted to run. WMF only gave up 3 of the next 11 rounds to take the map, the series and the WEM 2010 championship.
