Welcome to the holiday edition of This Week in Raptr, your weekly summary of upcoming community events and top discussions happening on Raptr.com! Things have been pretty quiet around Raptr HQ for the last few days, but we’re gearing up for 2013! Happy New Year!
StarCraft II Tournament Recap
Raptr’s Master’s League StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm tournament was a success! Congratulations to our winner, Complexity’s Sasquatch (who was also participated in our SC2 Q&A last month), and our second-place finisher, Yoigen! You can see a wrap-up of everything here.
We have a number of winners to announce this week!
Chestnuts roasting over Brand’s fire,
Ziggs is nipping at your nose,
Yuletide carols being played by Sona,
And Fizz dressing like an Eskimo.
Everybody knows Le’blanc will bring the mistletoe,
Lux will make the whole place bright,
Morgana’s cooking will make all eyes glow,
For the feast she’s brought tonight.
Santa Gragas is on his way,
His loaded all his famous ales in his sleigh.
And in the closest brush Teemo will hide,
To see if Kog’Maw really learned how to fly.
And so the champions enjoy their night,
Before the battle once again,
Although that is soon right now is the time,
To enjoy Christmas with you.
An honorable mention goes out to Austin Broyles AAB1994 as well for his Halo 4 rendition of “Jingle Bells!”
