PWC 2012 is finally over. For those who were on my streaming channel knew that this was the most disappointing PWC live stream ever. Thailand's livestream was a failure to watch, and the official PWC countdown timer was 10 hours late on schedule to add even more confusion.
To get the results out of the way, Pangya KR was already aware that the live stream on Thailand's channel was bogus so they updated the scoreboard during progress to keep them informed.
Preliminary Round Format: Team 1 & 2 (A) & Team 3 & 4 (B)
Course: Lost Seaway/ Front 9H / Time Limit 15* minutes
Korea (13 pts) vs. Japan (41 pts) = Japan
Thailand (37 pts) vs. Global (17 pts) = Thailand
Consolation Round Format: Losing Team from Group A vs. Group B
Course: West Wiz/ Front 9H / Time Limit 15* minutes
Korea (40 pts) vs. Global (14 pts) = Korea
Final Round Format: Winning Team from Group A vs Group B
Course: Shining Sand / Front 18H/ Time Limit 40 minutes
Japan (67 pts) vs. Thailand (41 pts) = Japan
Team Tournament Winners
3rd: South Korea
*According to Killie that was giving updates for us as we couldn't watch the stream that there was a bug in the system where they had to make 20 into 15 minutes instead.
Elimination Round: 4 players with best scores will advance to Final Round
Course: White Wiz / Front 18H / Time Restriction 40 minutes
Final Round: 4 players competing for ranking and top prize money (1st ~ 4th Place)
Course: Wiz Wiz / Front 18H / Time Restriction 40 minutes
Singles Tournament Winners:
1st: PWC_Igarisan (JP)
2nd: PWC_FP_NangMan (KR)
3rd: PWC_Yo-!So-? (KR)
4th: PWC_FP_sung (KR)
So there you have it, as most of you have already expected (including me) Team Japan takes 1st place on Team Tournament and "Igarisan the Pangya Machine" takes 1st place on singles again!
As for any hopes of a live stream footage, the recorded streams will be available from Korea, Thailand (pssh), and Japan. Korea did announce that they were going to livestream the event along with FP_NangMan participant to commentate, but it was later cancelled until further notice. Japan on the other hand will be announcing their schedule to have the recorded footage later on so stay tuned on here.
Even though it turned out disappointing, I still enjoyed our little Skype discussion while we were waiting for any positive news from GM_Killigrew that helped us on my Twitch.tv chat room. She kept us informed by contacting one of the Global GMs that was over there during the event for live score updates.
As for any future stream suggestions to the Pangya team, keep it on Ustream from now on that Japan did on last year's PWC that turned out smooth.
Whoever created the countdown on the main PWC page really need to know their timezones carefully. Many assumptions were made that I made a mistake saying that the live stream wasn't going to happen until 10 something hours to go...
GM_Killigrew uploaded this picture for us.
Mainlless uploaded a video of a new trailer that I remember seeing a hint of that playing on Thailand's stream before the main event. This is the full trailer from the previous Demon Lord PV. It seems the official name of the new course will be called "Ice Inferno".
You can download the promo video that I've uploaded here.
