Classic switches from Terran to Protoss: wins a GSL, SSL, and IEM
Neeb switches from Terran to Protoss: wins a Korean tournament in Korea
TLO switches from Terran to Zerg: never does anything worthwhile
Regardless of the situation, we will still action upon "dead game" comments, so please adhere to normal posting standards. As this is a sensitive issue for SC2 fans, please do not come into this thread and talk about SC2 players switching over to BW. This thread is also not about bashing Blizzard, David Kim, or the WCS system. Basically, please think very carefully before you post.
I just played my first games of LotV yesterday as well and I pre-ordered the thing. I managed to beat a platinum protoss in my first game back. This brief session did not inspire me to play regularly again tbh and it seems Kespa thought that was the final straw.
Probably a dead game in Korea unless they flatten out the individual league payouts immediately, with no salary nobody's going to play for the $3.50 you get for going out in the group stages and will retire/go back to BW/switch to overwatch or some other team game
Well i say BW, only player in the last GSL who was ever any good is Stats
In what will probably be the last time any of us give a **** about SC2, Blizzcon starts tomorrow. There's conflicting info on TL but two sources say it starts at 8:30am Pacific/11:30am Eastern/5:30pm CET and one source says it starts an hour later.
Schedule seems super weird too according to Liquipedia...
- Oct 27: groups A & B first three matches (GSL group format)
- Oct 28: groups C & D first three matches
- Oct 29: all 4 losers' matches
- Oct 30: all 4 elimination matches
- Nov 4: quarterfinals (bo5)
- Nov 5: semis (bo5) and finals (bo7)
Dark vs. PtitDrogo
Stats vs. Snute
Neeb vs. Patience
Zest vs. True
Showtime vs. Dear
Byun vs. Violet
Solar vs. Elazer
TY vs. Nerchio
First place is a whopping $200k. Fun fact: of all these players, Snute is the leader career $$ won at $279k, but winning would still leave him short of MC's $495k. Zest ($262k) and Nerchio ($232k) would also get close.
I didn't watch live and figured I could catch up from vods, but this vod of the full broadcast cuts off before game 2 of Zest vs. True. There's a full vod of their match but I don't think there's any vod of the two losers' matches that they played after that. Great job, Blizzard!
