PowerColor, Cooler Master and Universal ABIT are in search of a challenger in Taiwan to take on Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, the world’s best known professional video gamer, during COMPUTEX 2007. Is this guy human? Can he be defeated? PowerColor, Cooler Master and Universal ABIT want a worthy challenger to give him a run for his money. We will reward the challenger with 100,000 NTD (or about US$3000) if he or she can defeat Fatal1ty on June 5th.

Universal ABIT, a leading manufacturer of high-end gaming motherboards and peripherals and a Licensee of the Fatal1ty Brand, has invited Fatal1ty to visit Taiwan during COMPUTEX 2007. All three companies, Universal ABIT, Cooler Master and PowerColor, have decided to collaborate to gather the best gamers in the nation to put Taiwan on the map of professional gaming and international eSports.

Qualifiers will be held on June 2nd, 2007, from 12pm to 6pm (12pm-1pm for registration) at Aztec Internet Café (Nan King East Rd. branch), Taiwan’s foremost chain of Internet Cafés. The challenger will emerge from the qualifiers and get a chance to take on Fatal1ty at the same venue at 4pm on June 5th, 2007. Sign up online at the Aztec website (http://www.azteccup.com/Race_Detail.php?RaceNo=72) or sign up in person at any Aztec branch.

“I love Taiwan, and welcome a chance to go back to support our licensee Universal ABIT and participate in this great event to help promote gaming and hopefully inspire gamers from Taiwan to compete professionally”, says Johnathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel

“Cooler Master is the master of thermal solutions and the first to design an all aluminum PC case for gamers worldwide”, says Coco Lee, Gaming Project Manager at Cooler Master. “Through interactive activities, Cooler Master will build up its communication with gamers and contribute with professional technology and quality products to the gaming community.”

”As long time supporters of the global gaming community, ABIT is extremely proud to be able to spread the word about competitive gaming and eSports in Taiwan”, says David Jarlestedt, brand manager at Universal ABIT. “By inviting Fatal1ty, the world’s most successful professional video gamer, to Taiwan, we hope to demonstrate the true magic of gaming at the very highest level, and hopefully inspire the best talent in Taiwan to take the leap, get serious and go pro.”

“We are ecstatic to be having the best gamers in Taiwan challenge the best known gamer in the world. We really want to step up and challenge him, which is why we are giving NTD 100,000 as prize money to any person who manages to beat Fatal1ty”, says Raymen Wu, marketing manager at PowerColor.

if it was bf2 or any game in the battlefield series, i could whipe his face in the floor of the dirtiest bathroom ever, i was seriously ranked #1 in the world for bf1942 but than i got banned because i had a differant name with which i would use exploits on omaha beach, meaning they banned my cdkey LOL . ever since than the only bf i have payed for was 2142 which im ranked high for the 20 hours i spent playing it, i have like 3700 kills and like 70 deaths or less, was a long time since i checked anyway my ratio for kd is 53 to 1, in the battle walkers which my 1 death comes from the end of the game where everyone dies, so i would usualy not die in a walker at all during a game and kill an average of 53 people :-D, would love to see fatality do that on a 64 player bf2142 server i REALY WOULD lol, especialy with a pos crap ass computer.

If you're going to try to brag about how good you are, let's play. Add me, my BF2142 name is Tyrone. 1v1 Gunship battle!!!!

Would love to have a chopper fight with him on Desert Combat for BF1942, hehe.

He cant know all games and mods there are for every game, and when youre not used to flying a DC chopper, youre going to lose bigtime.

cya later

Put your E-penis's away boys...lol...

Who cares...its just fun gaming...good or bad..it is still fun to game...

However i can't get past the fact that some seem to idolize a man who sits in a chair on his pc playing games all day...It's not him I that bothers me...hell most of us sit around a lot and play games, but why do so many treat him like a "god"...Doesn't it seem a little silly?

Less important people have done greater things...

LOL at the day I am ranked 6th video game player in the world....That to me is like being named the #6th ranked pot smoker in the world...totally worthless...lol..:rockout:

Fatality is good there is no doubt about it, but he can be beaten just like anyone else, he just does a good job avoiding it :D
I've seen him play with his mouse which he carries in special silver metal case with nVidia on it, I bet his mouse got some chip inside of it that does everything for him and his own actions are being ignored :) well its just a joke, but I bet that those who do not participate in gaming competitions might be as good if not better than him, so there will be no suprize if he will be beaten by some guy/girl who we never heard of...

Heh. Zalman used to be the goto HSF brand, but they've been falling down the top-rank lists. The Tuniq Tower is pretty unbeatable right now.

What's unfortunate is that in most areas of technology, the goal is to go smaller, but no one's been able to do it with heatsinks. :D

it was just for fun lol, it was a spot under the bunkers in omaha where no one could get us, us being me and my friend c4pta1ntr1ps, we just thought it was funny as hell thats why we did it, and even than it was only on a mod of the game,i never cheated or exploited on normal bf1942 and on desert combat,was way to easy already flying the planes and using tanks, i used to just run people down with the planes for fun, scrape em into the ground hehe.

I would like to challange just for the hell of it just to see how many times I get fragged especially on quake but I'll ruin his ass on COD... maybe not. But hey who am I talking. He's got the money, girlz that wants his money and sponsors galore. Now is that a bonus or what. Getting paid playing games. I wish had a career like that. I can go on for ages mmmuuust ssstop tttyping bullbananas. :slap: :laugh:

i'd take him on in any RTS game. He only plays quake, and he always choses the game - best quake 2 player, once upon a time - doesnt mean he's the best quake 4 player, and by no means is he the best gamer - he'd have to win at every game to be that.

It's a shame that people who really make a difference to the world like doctors don't get paid as much as some loser who just plays games all day, huh?
