3-hour game becomes the highlight of Europe Challenger
Facing each other in the winner's match of Group G, MaNa and FireCake conducted the longest recorded game in professional StarCraft history, spanning upwards of three hours.
Akilon Wastes was the battlefield that beheld the epic battle between the Polish Zerg and the French Protoss. Known for being a host to colossus deathballs versus viper/swarm host/infestor face-offs, Akilon did not disappoint this time either and watched as the two players waged a 2,5-hour-long cold war before finally putting an end to the ridiculous match. The clock stopped at exactly 3:04:54, ending the cries of the fans in the Twitch channel who demanded that Mana and Firecake to "༼ ᕤºل͟º ༽ᕤ END THIS".
Naturally, a game like this could not go without additional comment from the people involved. In a pair of tweets, Mana explained that he did it for fans entertainment and addressed Blizzard in the process.

Losing the game itself sent MaNa to the decider match of the group where the Pole would eventually lose to BlinG, finishing third overall. The penultimate group of Europe's challenger league is scheduled for today at 18:00 CET, featuring Thorzain, Dimaga, NightEnd and uThermal.
