About[edit]

The 2010 edition managed to get its running time down to an all-time low: only four days in total.

This year's lineup supplanted 2008 as the best in the tournament's history, with only mTw lacking of the world's elite level teams. The big storyline of this event was WeMade FOX finally winning an international tournament, after years of second places and semi-final eliminations. That their victory came in the form of a near-movie-storyline romp made it only sweeter. The Koreans drew their best map, inferno, a total of three times in the tournament, winning all of them. In the final they came from the lower bracket to avenge an upper bracket final loss to SK Gaming by beating the Swedes twice to take the crown.

Prior to the final SK Gaming had seemed to be the team gliding along on destiny's shoulders, as they had come with a stand-in, Delpan, to go along with their other stand-in, MODDII, and yet had beaten Na`Vi, the team of the year, on the Ukrainian's best map, train. After beating WeMade FOX in the upper final on dust2 everyone expected them to close the deal, but a mixture of the Koreans raising their games and SK crumbling during the closing stanzas of each map led to walle and company being forced to accept the silver medal. This would mark the second-to-last ever tournament played for SK by walle.

The Poles of FX found themselves twice victims of WeMade FOX's inferno draws, with that happening to one of the worst maps for the Poles. Na`Vi bizarrely were eliminated with two losses on train, by far their best map all year long, as SK Gaming knocked them out of the upper bracket and then FX, who admittedly were an excellent train team, eliminated them from the tournament in fourth. The only other big result of note was EG.usa's overtime upset of fnatic in the lower bracket, putting out Sweden's best team in a controversial match where claims were made of the Americans ghosting on the deciding round.
