1st PLACE PRIZE:
One mGG Jersery!
We wanted the map pool for this tourney to remind everyone of maps they might have played on in the past whilst also looking ahead towards the next year of mGG. Therefore we included a lot of maps that are not currently being played in the pro-scene at the moment.
The Shattered Temple
WCS Antiga Shipyard

Well, it’s time. Today we celebrate Meta-Game Gods 1 year Birthday. 1 year ago Thoth made the announcement that him and CwnAnnwn (now known as NoRe, thank god for a name that people can actually pronounce) were starting a small new BSG Practice clan aimed at encouraging players to simply practice with each other, to talk about and discuss different styles and strategies and of cores to simply enjoy the game together.
Through the success of the system that Thoth and NoRe had established, helping players improve through a friendly and supportive environment, promotions started flying in. As the players improved and promoted it was time to begin to move away from purely BSG, and time to begin to find new players of Platinum, then Diamond, than eventually Masters league to join the ranks. mGG began a system, of not recruiting higher league players until mGG’s own members had first reached that level them selves. A system that went on all the way from the BSG roots, up until we started achieving Grand Master players.
First Diamond : mGG Muex First Master: Nomad (shortly after left to join TN, mGGSouth was the next one to achieve master.) First Grandmaster: mGGAlpha
Though we have players achieving the rank of GM, mGG still put a heavy emphasis on the lower league players of the clan. With the higher league players often and helping to assist and practice with some of the lower league players of mGG.
Over the year mGG has held a number of in house tournaments for its players. A way to reward them for their hard work and dedication. These tournaments include:
mGG In House 1: Won by mGGNihc mGG In House 2: Won by mGGSouth mGG In House 3: Won by mGGSouth mGG Funday Comp: Won by mGGProbe mGG Summer Swiss: Won by mGGTitan mGG Race War: Won by Protoss
mGG has participated in MANY clan wars over the year in all 3 of our divisions, Bronze Silver Gold, Platinum Diamond, and Master Grandmaster. As well as holding 2 ‘Fully loaded’ (as coined by DrGooSe) Clan wars with TCP and ToR which were great fun, doing a big 3 part clan war involving the entire team from Bronze to Grandmaster. A big shout out and thank you must got to Duckvillelol, MattyB and Mirth for the many, many, many…. many hours they have spent casting our clan wars and in house competitions. And a big thank you to every other caster who has given their time to help make these clan wars and other competitions much more fun to experience, participate and to watch.
On the 23rd of August last year mGG made one of their biggest announcements to date, that they had picked up 3 sponsors: VroomVroomVroom, TickTax and Dejan SEO. The partnership between these sponsors and mGG is built on the goal of helping improve all of the Starcraft 2 E-Sport scene in SEA. With all the money going back into the community through tournaments and competitions hosted by mGG, the biggest of which will begin in a couple months called: The SEANA Trials! (More information coming at a later date)
As we have grown, we have always put community first, be it the community of E-Sports as a whole, the community of the SEA server or the community of this close group of friends that we have kept and built upon over time. And this is what we always strive to improve upon Community. Through remaining active on forums such as sc2sea.com and the SEA bnet forums, with the ever growing community in the in game chat channel ‘mGG’ (record so far is 58 people at once ) and with the opportunities that we as a team have been able to meet in person hang out with each other and help grow our friendships. (Such as WCS Australia, IEM Singapore, the mGG 1 year SG party and more.)
Since becoming the leader with DrGooSe, it has been a great honor and privilege to lead this group with the help of the others in the leadership team, Thoth, NoRe, Nemesis, Muex and Asrathiel. There are some amazing people who I’m very glad to be able to call my friends. And my year wouldn’t have been remotely close to the same if it weren’t for mGG. So I’ll finally finish this long rant by saying Happy Birthday to mGG. And here’s hoping for many more years to come!
Welcome to the first update of 2013 (Hey, I didn't accidently type 2012! Go me.) We have an exciting few weeks coming up for us!
