NCsoft Europe and ArenaNet®, developer of the award-winning online role-playing game Guild Wars®, are extremely pleased to announce that on Saturday 26th August War Machine of Korea was crowned Guild Wars Factions™ World Champion, walking away with $50,000 of the $100,000 prize money, bringing War Machine’s total earnings in the last three months up to $75,000. Runners up Idiot Savants of America also took home a healthy $25,000.

The Guild Wars Factions World Championship saw the return of five guilds from the Guild Wars World Championship which took place in Taiwan earlier this year, as well as a sixth open-invitational qualifier. These top players participated in a highly-competitive three-month series earlier this year, and earned their much sought after seats by rising to the top of hundreds of thousands of competitors from around the world.
