I play dota2 from time to time, but I couldn't ever follow it as spectator, it's to boring to watch for me, games are long. Starcraft tho is miles ahead of any esport for spectating.
In SC2, I really want to win and I like making the right moves. I'm really amateur (top of silver to bottom gold), but I did know a lot of the basics, builds, and matchup situations. When I rewatch my games, I always criticize myself such as "I should have positioned this squad over here" or "I should have expanded at this point". The stress is also from having to keep in mind of so many things such as worker count, scouting, timings, unit counters, etc.

Well, yeah actually there was point in time when all I wanted was to win, but I learned that it's wrong, the game and ladder is build the way that you will lose games no matter what, little by little I've got completely calm about it, just watching replay if after the game if wonder why something happened or if I wanted to check something. Sometimes in my head after the game I do thnk it's unfair that I've lost, but I try to shake that off as fast as I can as I know it's not a good mentality and will not give you anything beneficial.

Rain won WCS Asia last night. Prooooobably the best protoss player right now, as MC hasn't won in a few weeks.

Thorzain just won the Asus ROG GD Invitational. He plays terran so well. I think among foreigner terrans he has the best TvP, and right now is the best overall. Major is inconsistent and doesn't attend enough events. It's a shame TSL ****ed him over.

Slayers disbands...CoCa, Puzzle, and Min have been playing LoL since a few months ago...

The disbanding isn't quite as sad, but that part is. CoCa was probably top 3 zerg in korea just a short time ago. Puzzle is a ro8 level protoss, and Min was performing well in teamleagues, primarily online.

MMA and Alicia both have said they want to go to foreigner teams. Other hot commodities will be Ryung, Genius, Cella (coach), Miya, Yugioh, Dark, KDY, Miso, and Arthur.

Any predictions where most of them land?

Yeah.

MMA is probably torn. Axiom has 2 of his friends and potential/more attention able to be given to him, whereas EG has several of his friends, the potential to play in the GSTL, and more money.

MMA to EG, wow never thought that would be possible.. EG is my fav foreign team so I wouldn't mind haha. Can EG become what Slayers was for terran players and develop a terran mastermind group? PuMa, MMA, Thorzain, Demuslim. Great terran core

Default HotS update



Quote:
While its impact to players may seem subtle, the out-of-game experience in StarCraft II can be just as important as the in-game experience. Our Battle.net statistics show that players spend about a third of their time in StarCraft II using the menus outside of a game. They might be browsing the latest Arcade games, checking out someone’s profile, reviewing the score screen of past games in their match history, or just chatting with some friends. It’s important to us to make this experience as streamlined and usable as possible.

The 1.5 patch we released a couple months ago was a major update that included several changes to the menus and the addition of the new Arcade experience. What you might not know is that many of the changes in 1.5 were actually slated to be a part of the Heart of the Swarm expansion. We felt that several features, including Arcade, would be of immediate benefit to players, and decided to release them earlier in the 1.5 patch. Since we weren’t done with the rest of Heart of the Swarm yet, we had to compromise in some areas of the menus to support these features. We weren’t really happy with how this added additional complexity to the menus.

Since then, we’ve continued to work on Heart of the Swarm, and we’ve made some big changes to improve the overall user experience. With the release of the next major Heart of the Swarm beta patch, we'd like to give you an advance look at those changes. These updates will become available to both Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm players once the expansion is live.

For the Swarm!

Jessica is a ****ing liar and has proved this time and time again. Her PR skills are awful and she has proven to be a total bitch on countless occasions. While I'm sure lots of what she said has truth to it, lots of it is assuredly bullshit. I'm quite sure all of this drama is a huge reason that Boxer left slayers.

He still may go to axiom, you never know. But yeah, that's a decent group of terrans. Puma hasn't been too great this year and demuslim still has never broken out at a live event, but yeah, good core nonetheless. If EG got rid of Lzgamer and machine (i know they'll never get rid of incontrol) and made room for players who actually are skilled i think they could be contending for best team non-korean.

MMA and Crank are speaking to Ethan Ahn, a big name for thisisgame (huge korean esports site) late tonight and apparently will be saying a lot. Really interested to see what goes on there.

This is a complete shitfest and I just hope the dust settles. I want these players to find a new home.

Boxer being named head coach for SKT1 is pretty cool and I wonder if we'll see any of the slayers players pop onto skt1 because as far as i know they can...

REMINDER: LG-IM.MVP and Startale.Life will be facing off at 11:00pm pst 2:00am est in the GSL Finals! Best of seven terran versus zerg.

This matchup has a great storyline behind it. MVP is the seasoned vet, looking for his fifth GSL victory, while Life is the royal roader, looking to win the GSL in his first season in Code S at age fifteen!

Plus, LG-IM has been known for winning everything, while Startale is kind of known as the Kong Team (countless players known for second place finishes, such as Life, Parting, Squirtle, and even July).

If anyone has any suggestions to how I should adjust the op/second post let me know. I changed up the original post a little bit, adding more reigning champions and some youtube channels to watch.

I find this dreamhack to be somewhat uninteresting due to no terrans past ro16 (thestc and rain both lost in the ro16). plus, no good koreans aside from thestc, rain, and sage.

bly is up 1-0 v mana right now. http://www.twitch.tv/dreamhacktv this is the first ro4 game. after this is nerchio v starnan

i think nerchio is going to win this whole thing, and have thought this all along.
