SC2 Pro Tournament Discussion

Surely you mean State of the Game, or is this thread following the Slayers players' lead and defecting to LoL too?

State of the Game returns! Let us rejoice!

Oh wow, my 2 hours of sleep last night must really be getting to me. I most definitely meant State of the Game.

Also, GSL Finals today!

*Avoid twitter like the plague if you don't want GSL finals spoilers. I managed to click away after only seeing "This has been an amazing final so far"

*Also, still have some nice white-hot burning hate for MLG for using own3d.tv for MvP. It's still unfrickin watchable for me about 75% of the time at any resolution.

my biggest beef with mlg is I half the time don't have a clue what I'm paying for. I bought their yearly thing that gets me access to the big mlg events (so I think) then these arenas pop up and I cant figure out why I can watch them, then I figure out its not covered so buy that.... they this new ppv content comes out and I try to log in and it tell me you need a premium access code... I look at my mlg account and look there is one! I put it in and it doesn't work, so I use there nifty tech support and he nor I can figure it out. Eventually I realized they want me to pay again! I don't mind paying, just charge me once a year to watch all your stuff and I'll be happy, none on this nickel and diming crap.

MLG Dallas should be starting momentarily. Runs all weekend as usual!

+ Free HD for the night as a compensation for the delay.

Apparently it's starting on tape delay. Day9 spoiled the first results on his twitter. Avoid it if you want to stay surprised.

Own3D has already taken a sh*t twice in twenty minutes for me.

Thankfully... the twitch.tv streams are up.

It is? I thought he was trolling

He was. He just tweeted again with a bit about winking.

Works fine now. Probably the sudden "Free HD for all" and LoL crushing the streams. They also hid the viewer counts for streams TT.

Doh, he got me. Seemed out of character for him, and he deleted the tweet.

Rough start to the event. It's been a dull 2 hours.

I dunno, they announced the delay almost 45 minutes in advance. I got up and made myself some dinner.

And while the Flash/Grubby match has failed to start twice now for different reasons, San/Vibe is on the SC2 Blue stream and they're already in game 2.

Wow. Flash's play looks solid as hell.

Scarlett completely controlled game 1 against Bomber but then accidentally unhotkeyed her lings and just thought they were dead. Cost her the game. Oops.

Axslav's casting has improved so much so fast, it's quite impressive. I already loved his idra-like dry analytical casting but now he's sounding like a more masculine Husky with 10x the game knowledge.

Agreed.

Also: Scarlett showing Bomber what's up when she doesn't forget half her units exist

*And again in game 3. Scarlett looking great in that series.

So technically she's 3-0 in a bo3 against Bomber. Not bad xD

Hrm. So is there no VOD during the event for premium people any more?

Sheth didn't quite pull it off, but he made Rain look human, beatable even.

That burrow micro.... I dont think Ive ever seen anything like that.

That might be back with Twitch.tv streams.

Glad Twitch is back up; hopefully they and everyone else recover quickly from Sandy.

Twitch is horrible all in all...but for now liking it for the content at least
Glad to see some normal broadcasters again. Watched some other streams
with Rotterdam...and as much as I like him for being Dutch like me, I just can't
listen to him.

Just when I'm about to venture into the big open world outside, Flash is playing next....

Rumors abound that a photographer somehow interfered with the Idra/STC match. Watching TL to see what hilarity ensues.

*They're kicking team owners and miscellaneous event staff out of the player areas now. Sounds like a possible reaction to the photographer complaint. Still haven't seen that anywhere but on twitter though.

Network lag has delayed all matches. If only there were some kind of technology that could bypass that problem.

*Flash vs STC finally ends. Up Next... More Flash! Against Naniwa this time. More interesting match I think.

Wasn't there a rumour that Blizz has a LAN client but that tournaments don't want to use it because they're required to have 24/7 armed guard for it or something?

Never heard that before no. And Blizzard has said outright there there won't be a LAN client.

Also, they just showed Flash's POV camera. Not as crazy as I thought it might be, but still a lot of stuff flickering across the bottom with him jumping between things. I would prefer to see it when things are actually happening.

*Naniwa playing really well so far against Flash.

Didn't seem like Flash knew how to handle that really heavy Zealot/Archon composition.

I'm supposed to be seeing a play in 45 minutes. I need a 10-15 minute but exciting back and forth here. Anything longer and I have to miss the end of it

*Naniwa hears my psychic plea and sets up for super cheesy cheese.
