HWBOT Announces World Championship Wild Card Contest

Yesterday Hazzan qualified for the World Championship Final which will held in early December in Berlin, Germany. In winning the World Series Asia Pacific contest he joined an elite group of overclockers that includes other World Series winners; marc_0053 (N.America), PXHX(Latin America), DrWeez (S.Africa), Bullshooter (Europe) and Xtreme Addict (Asia). One thing that you may noticed is that we now have a total of seven overclockers, an uneven number that would make a pretty lop-sided contest. Today we can reveal that in fact there will be an eighth ‘Wild Card’ ticket on offer and it will go to the winner of the World Championship Wild Card Contest.
