Are you guys ready to get into the fight? Despite server launch problems and missing key features. The fighting game has a lot of potential with tons of local tournaments already being held. Team Sky Nite is pondering to get into the FGC and maybe compete. This will be the first time tSn will have members compete in a fighting game other than casually having fun on Super Smash Bros.
We had 9 people show up, 2 whom were representing Team Sky Nite battled it out for the first place prize of an Amazon Gift Card ($6). This was the first of the few qualifying tournaments for the big leagues. Players will battle for points which will seed them directly into the main tournament where they will play for a bigger prize pool. 21 players were expected to show but 9 players checked in. It was a 4 round swiss battleground whre UCIAMYY4U went and took it with a 4-0 score.
Top 3 saw 2 players from Team Sky Nite. DonGato who got 2nd place with a 3-1 score who lost to the champion could have seen the first place spot. While these top 3 players have gotten points for qualifying they will be seen at the next Hero Cup to be hosted by Team Sky Nite. There were late people showing up (2) but they were added into the brackets about 30 minutes of start time. The Hero Cups will be more relaxed and easy to work with than other tournaments so people wouldn’t have to feel stressed out. All the cups will be played in Swiss so everyone will have a chance to win and play. (And not have to worry about losing in the first round)
Sky Nite Hero Cup #2 will be the same as the first one with swiss rounds to a playoff bracket (If we see more than 16 players) to battle it out for the top 4 spots to win some money and points.
2014 Sky Nite Hero Cup #2? Maybe in the coming months with a $50 prizepool! Free to Enter! Hope to see you guys soon!

Only a couple people from tSn as well as some friends competed in these online tournaments, most notably was the Zotac Cup 18 and the ESL Cup 33. What’s different about these online tournaments? Well both were the only N A tournaments that will grant a seed to the Blizzard World Championship Qualifiers and only 2 people can be accepted. Famous streamers and players will also present in these tournaments such as players from vVv gaming and even Reynad was playing. The tournaments were lots of fun and some of us were able to get past the first round. The first tournament Friday was the Zowie NA Rumble #1 which was a Starcraft 2 tournament which Dj Knite X participated in and lost in the RO32 to a Grandmaster Protoss 0-2. The second tournament was Saturday where Dj Knite X got a free win in the first round and pushed his way through the 2nd round 2-1 and eventually lost in the 3rd round (Ro64) 0-2 to a miracle rogue deck, claming top 64 out of 490 people who competed Saturday. The next tournament is the ESL Pre-Cup 33. Not a good run, but 490 people also participated and Dj Knite X lost in the first round (RO512) 0-2. And today, Monday was the Top Deck tournament featuring about 40 players playing for 5$. Both Dj Knite X and Skyryuu both competed with Skyryuu advancing alot farther than Dj Knite X. Dj Knite X lost in the first round (64) 1-2 and Skyruu lost in the 3rd round (Ro32) losing to a Japanese player going 1-2 in the series. These were some fun tournaments and will continue to do more soon and become pro.
Are you guys ready? SKT1 won over CJ Centus in the Round 3 Finals with a score of 4-2. I have a feeling that SKT will go into the grand finals and win it all! Are you guys excitied? Take notes and feel the love for all eSports even if you aren’t a fan of Starcraft.
I will try my best to take lots of notes and do tons of articles regarding Proleague. Anyways, hope you are rooting for your favorite team because I am. And my favorite team is SKT1… BoxeR’s team. Let’s do it!
Here are the proleague stats as of recent, took it from Liquidpedia/Team Liquid, and would love to thank them very much for having such a wonderful community that updates on many different eSports event including the current proleague!
Today was a match between Dj Knite X vs Ozshotz in a special scrimmage testing out decks and having friendly battles against each other. Dj Knite X played his Shaman vs Ozshotz’s Paladin. Both games were interesting to play but Dj Knite X came on top after a good 1-0 start in the best of 3. Ozshotz with his harras paladin against the control shaman was no match for the late game that Dj Knite X was going to bring out.
Both games Dj Knite X was able to add +3 to his minions and windfury his strongest one for the win, or even Fire Elemental for the win. Time for practice, for the road to WCS begins now. More GG. More Skill.

It’s been a cold run for tSn.TCG as their last pokemon event was back in February, they missed states, they missed league challenges, and missed most of the league meets. Now, Dj Knite X alongside tSn member, L-stAR (RogueXIII) entered the Thundershock 3rd league challenge where they were against 12 other Pokemon TCG Players. They saw decks such as Darkrai/Yvetal, Plasma, Empoleon, Mewtwo, and more. It was fun and competition was fiereced. Play testing for Nationals, lets see if it was worth it. Here are some pics and stats
Meeting new players is always fun, battling and trading are the key parts of playing TCG. Shoutouts to Anthony and his league over at Team Thundershock for hosting the event, Dragon’s Keep for the venue, and the players for showing up!
Dj Knite X took 4th place with a 3-2 record and L-stAR didn’t top cut with his 2-3 record.
