Looking back at the past twelve months, it is hard to argue this has been an incredibly intense year for us. We launched a beta version of the new competitive overclocking platform OC-ESPORTS.IO. We established a permanent base in Taipei, Taiwan. We have significantly improved the communication tools for the staff, allowing more input from and responsibilities for the first-in-line members of the community. We are in the process of professionalizing the organization's structures to streamline and optimize our resources.
We helped our major partners organize some of the most prestigious and disruptive overclocking competitions ever. At Computex 2014 we helped Intel host the highest dollar-value overclocking competition (USD $25,000, Intel OC Challenge) and G.SKILL gave away the single largest cash prize (USD $10,000, G.SKILL OC World Cup) ever in the history of overclocking. Last month we helped MSI set forward the MOA tradition (with USD $70,833 the most prestigious series) and later this week we are flying to Russia for ASUS's third edition of the ASUS Open Overclocking Cup. At very beginning of next year, we fly out to Las Vegas for the final conclusion of HyperX's OC Takeover 2014 competition.
It is amazing to cooperate with such an inspiring set of people, pushing overclocking further every year, and the team feels blessed with the ability to enjoy producing, sharing and creating OC content in all directions of the world map. But don't be fooled, we are not done yet. If you thought 2014 was amazing, then prepare yourself for 2015!
Today we (not-quite-yet-officially) announce the launch of something we hope to inspire and excite you with. Over the past couple of months the team has brainstormed, discussed, budgeted, and coordinated efforts with community volunteers, enthusiasts and partners to bring you a series of worldwide overclocking gatherings.
