To the guys who are adding top news to the blog... this is a kind note!

The sentence, "The winner of the last Rliga tournament on 1000 0pt become [NMA]^Joker^, who beat in the final [CEKTA]^FantaZy^.", involves always the same mistake ever since the blog has been created. The sentence is gramatically wrong and it hurts to read it over and over.
I waited around 2 years until someone else takes notice and says something, but it hasn't occured yet.

"become" is the standard version of the word and makes not much sense in this context.

So, here are some correct versions that you can use:


1.
The winner of the last Rliga tournament on 1000 0pt is [NMA]^Joker^, who beat [CEKTA]^FantaZy^ in the final.

2.
[NMA]^Joker^ defeated [CEKTA]^FantaZy^ in the 1000 0pt Rliga tournament finale. He won his [X]th gold medal.


The 2nd version sounds the most natural! 1 sounds like a robot speaking.
It's your choice. Thx for reading.
