The WoW Factor held its first bilingual event this week, having been invited to a German realm, Kargath.
Our journey to Kargath was sponsored by Xaders, a local transmog item seller who contacted us back in May, with the intention of bringing the WoW Factor to a new audience. He generously put forward 100,000 gold and two epic weapons as prizes for us to hand out to the finest outfits on his home realm.
Quality was certainly not in short supply on the night, as several participants arrived in outfit combinations unlike any we’ve seen at previous events. It’s great to see something new, especially nineteen events down the line! The venue, Stormwind Cathedral, was approximately half full when we began, but quickly filled out with a huge array of mog sets for us to check out.
So tough was the competition that we had difficulty choosing between two participants when selecting the final ‘top winner’ of the night. That was until Caylo stepped in and offered us a donation of 10,000g, so that we might have four top prizes as opposed to our usual three. With Caylo’s kind contribution on top of Xaders’ original sponsorship, the prize total reached an impressive 110,000 gold! Thanks to both sponsors for their generosity.
The sponsorship offers brought us to Kargath, but the event wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our guest judge for the week, Xandr, who, despite the similarity in name, was not connected to our sponsor. Xandr is a friend and guildmate of Noelani’s, and a knowledgeable transmogrification enthusiast. He also happens to be German, which enabled us to judge and present the event in both English and the local language of Kargath’s playerbase.
You can follow along with the judging process in both languages, and check out pictures of some of the participants, via the following links.
We very much enjoyed our first bilingual WoW Factor event and greatly appreciate the support that participants and viewers showed as we did our best to cater to our mixed audience. A special thanks goes to Xandr and Xaders for making it possible.
Which language will be next to join the WoW Factor club?
Our event at Kargath followed the same two-round structure which we have used at many previous WoW Factors. The first round was the so-called ‘Random Round’, where we awarded multiple prizes of various sizes. In the second round, we shortlisted six characters, then narrowed those six down to four overall winners with two runners-up.
