I may be about to start an argument.

Wave.Int Flying High!

As things over at the wave get organized properly, we get fancy little things to show off our awesomeness: The new banners!

More Tournaments!

Greetings GFN!

So this week’s post is mainly an update on what’s to come! Big things are on the way as promised – and here’s a sample of what’s on the way:

More tournaments: jDL Season 1 is winding to a close but there’s plenty more on the menu – we’re sniffing around a bunch of other tournaments from NADota’s secs/tecs to the AD2L.

More WAVE Stuff: Season two of KOTH is drawing to a close, but season 3 will kick off soon, and we’ve got plans for a more regular tournament starting soon as well!

Wave Gaming: jDL season 2 marks the rebranding of Ra’II into Wave.Int, and we should also see the Wave.USA team enter the frame. Its on guys…

But of course, I’m here as a vid guy so here’s the best match from the last week!:
