DEADLINE – 10th of December 2009

November 23rd, 2009 | Posted by diejule in General - (0 Comments)

Hi guys and girls! Our deadline will be the 10th of December 2009! Do not let it woosh by! We just got some cool new contributers, like Dario Salice! Remember, the book will be published world-wide via amazon, nobody earns money with this project. But if somebody from every eSports nation writes a cool article for this book, it will be interesting to everyone and in the end of the day the result will mirror what eSports is like in a very unique way.

Don’t be shy! If you have any funny last-minute idea, tell us! We are open to anything, because this is YOUR project.

Tobi and I only make sure that every voice will be heared and that the book will look fantastic. You are the writers, we are the layout guys! We ask you by this to send us your texts. You grab a cup of tea or coffe and write something awesome, something personal, something about your job in eSports or about your favourite game… This is a book for eSports fans, written by players, managers and editors. A book from eSports enthusiasts for eSports enthusiasts. And the best part is: The print version of this book can be used to present eSports to people who need to get a first eSports overview. For example, clans could order the book and give it to potential sponsors. Students at universities can quote from the book, even if they only use the eBook as a source.

Have fun!

HowTo – eSports Yearbook!

Oktober 17th, 2009 | Posted by diejule in General - (2 Comments)

Who can participate?
Gamers, people working in eSports, eSports journalists

Until when do I have to contribute?
Deadline: 2009 eSports Yearbook: December 10th 2009
Deadline: 2010 eSports Yearbook: November 30th 2010


Who is already in?
Patrick „FragFrog“ Kasper, Matthias „Losemann“ Beyer, Damla Pinar Gök, David “affentod” Hiltscher, Manuel „Grubby“ Schenkhuizen, Johnathan „Fatal1ty“ Wendel,  Jean-Christophe „LOBO“ Arnaud, Alessandro „stermy“ Avallone,  Lari Syrota, Konstantin „swine“ Bös, David Donschen, Steven Leunens… and many many more

What is it good for?
A book full of opinions, serious and funny eSports stories can only be good for everybody in eSports. A book about WoW, CS, Need for Speed, eSports in China, eSports in Russia, in Turkey, in Germany, in France, Romania… can be shown to journalists who did not yet really get what you were talking about. You can use this book as a gift to your friends and family. You can show this book to your sponsors or give it to them as a present. If you help us to launch this book in 2009, there will also be one for 2010 and so on. This means that after several years you can really see it as a yearbook, as if eSports was a school full of classes full of gamers and the book will remind you of faces you maybe have not seen for some time.

How do I contribute to this?
Send us about 1500 words in English and some nice pictures that illustrate your story. Your story should be about eSports. It can be your opinion on one topic. It can be an article on something you want everybody to read. It can be a funny story or a serious one. It can be the story of your clan or of your career.

We wish you a splendid weekend!

eSports yearbook – the inevitable progress

September 17th, 2009 | Posted by diejule in General - (0 Comments)

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

We are very happy about the e-mails we got from famous players and distinguished people working in eSports. Many interesting people that run the show or make the fans bite their lips/ jump into the air responded. But this is not enough: we want more. We want to make sure that everyone in eSports that feels like he or she has to tell a story for 2009 sends us an e-mail. Every eSports institution/ clan can send us a 1500-words-long story about them. Feel free to contact us if you are not sure about how to write/ present your story. You are also free to choose pictures for your pages in the book. The book will be published internationally online, it is a print version, it will also be available via amazon. That is why this book (with its many different faces, pictures and stories), if you participate, can be eye-opening to many people, including the press.

Make sure you write your article in English. We reply to all questions immediately:
