Some pretty good IEM games.

Also, FYI, ASL starts end of March, sweet.

At least now we're getting Scan and Nyoken casting it. NGL I like BW, but not enough to watch the Korean stream so any English stream is welcome, and Scan/Nyoken is better than I hoped for.

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

Not sure what I'll watch. If it's only on Afreeca I may go for the Korean cast anyway.

Surprised Scan actually made it in to ASL

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

I haven't had any luck using the afreeca app, so I may just have to stick to the Korean cast as well.

Didn't watch it live (first day with the time zone shift here so really didn't want to get up early for it), but watched the VOD:

https://vod.afreecatv.com/PLAYER/STATION/70458608

Didn't miss much. First game (effort/ss1nz) was decent if only because one of the players pulled out a strat that I've not seen before

Spoiler:


which nearly worked. Rest of the games were just one sided or not interesting. Would recommend at least giving Scan/Nyoken a go, the VOD works just fine on browser

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

not to be a doomer but GSL is now only 16 instead of 28 players and the prize pool has gone down by like 20k?

i was excited when i went onto liquipedia and saw code a was running and then realized that code a is basically...the first round of GSL now?

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

Nothing worth watching in ASL group B. Maybe the Shine/Royal game, if only because the player that gets a massive lead goes for interesting tech, but they could have done pretty much anything at that stage

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

gsl ro16

And yes, code A was disappointing and we are not of a good start.
It's just downhill from here.

Btw, anyone think there is room/will ever be a starcraft 3?
Aoe2 has massive viewers and is extremely popular at the moment, so rts seems to have a place?

I'm ok with the new format... the first round of GSL had as many bops as it had good matchups, and all the best games came from Ro16 onwards anyway

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

i thought code a games were pretty good overall, idk if the bo5 vs groups had something to do with it, but it was entertaining. only a single round of groups will def be a little strange now, but i dont think overall its too bad of a change. i also wonder if covid and no fans has something to do with the cutbacks.

those groups look pretty good too, nothing too crazy and fairly even
