Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

I'd be open to any/all of the following + any ideas

Top vs bottom
Terrans vs the field
Each pick 1(or more), LL bet

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

If somehow there's enough interest, maybe..? But lately it's just been hu bets with tj. I'm down for whatever, get a few small sweats going. I'd do any of those vs you both also, just need the same side for the 50/50s

I'll take the other side of your top vs bottom pick for $20 at evens.

To be clear, I'm calling the "top" as Rogue/Solar/Zoun/Dark/sOs/TY/Dream/Armani,

and "bottom" as Bunny/Byun/Trap/Cure/Innovation/Special/Ragnarok/Maru.

Quote:
Terrans vs the field
As for Terrans vs. the field, there are 8 Terrans and 8 non-Terrans, so if every match was a coinflip, fair odds would be even money. However, some Terrans play each other, and as we all know some Terrans are stronger than others. Just for the sheer number of runners I feel the Terran side needs to lay some juice.

If you want to bet on a Terran to win, I'll set the line at -125, so I win your $25 if a non-Terran wins, and you win my $20 if any Terran wins.

Quote:
Each pick 1(or more), LL bet
I'm assuming you want to take Maru here... if you do, I'll take Trap. They both have a fairly easy path until they'd meet in the Ro4, which would be an epic sweat if we got that matchup. We'd also have a sweat if they were to be knocked out earlier.

If they go out in the same round (say they both lose in the Ro8), then call it a push.

So I'll do that for $20 at evens also. Let me know if you want a different last longer.

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

I was undecided on a good line for the terran bet, yes they play each other but that also gtds a ko. I do think they are fairly stronger overall so I'm cool with -125.

I'll book both, yes maru (lfg!!!) And let you pick bracket side if you want. Confirmed top/bottom meaning

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

Sounds good! I'll take the top.

So I have the "top" (Rogue/Solar/Zoun/Dark/sOs/TY/Dream/Armani) to win for $20 at evens,

I win $25 if a Protoss or Zerg wins, and I pay $20 if any Terran wins,

and I have Trap vs Maru for a last longer, push if they go out in the same round, for $20 at evens!

Quote to book, this will make watching these games so much more fun!

(open to gamboneee only at the moment... if anyone else wants in on this action, I have to confirm).

yessir, booked all 3.

obv we'd have to agree, but would you like to pick a second for the LL, their only purpose being tiebreaker? can call it a push if those also exit same time.

if so, ill let you pick first, id take rogue first, ty second. up to you but so far booked

def gonna make it a better sweat, and this is more what im trying to do more often. get some "fun" bets going. im hoping i cant brick them all...

also only booked with tj atm, but open to more or more suggestions (ppg if you want in?)

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

ok since this is starting soon and didnt hear anything, the extra pick is OUT, bets are all good as booked; LL is a push if exit same round

thought it might add a BIT of a sweat to have one layer of breaker but maybe next time.

Re: Starcraft 2 (GAME IS NOW FREE!)

are you guys just rich action junkies.

How the heck do you end up betting on starcraft lol.

I suppose it makes the broadcast more exciting.

Some surprises in the first round gsl.

I'm a maru & TY fan, but its clear to me now Rogue is the king
of sc2 in korea. So I would probably make him the favourite in
every tourny for at least the next few years.

I always use www.sc2links.com, you have to reveal individual matchups and they mask youtube's interface so the length of the match isn't spoiled.

I stay away from youtube itself, because the finals of a tournament I've been watching is usually one of the first things it recommends on my home page

yeah i usually go this route too but i had been watching it on my tv in the living room. go back to turn music on and there is finals front and center. oh well. have not been as in to it as before, but still a good time killer. and my only gamble gamble
