MLG Columbus, thoughts so far

It wasn't going to be hard for MLG to outdo Dallas, but Columbus has been incredible so far. Firstly we've had these two ballers running for 8 hours a day. This gave us two streams, one by the traditional DJ Wheat and Day9 (<3) and the other by Artosis and Tasteless. This allowed us to view more games which was the one of the bigger general complaints of the format, because they have to play four groups of pool play into a further four brackets, complemented by a open sign up Open Backet, which eventually turns into an elimination bracket for the championship. By having the two streams we have enjoyed a far greater pool of games.

And oh those games oh were they awesome. First we had Idra vs MC, an amazing high level game. Idra played an absolutely incredibly brilliant game, utilizing Hydra drops in the first game and neural parasited immortals in the second game he gave us the first of many victory over the Koreans. Followed by Naniwa vs Moon, seeing 5 base Protoss vs 5 base zerg generated an absolutely incredible game, Naniwa utilized fast tech switches, from Colossus, to Immortal to High Templar to take out Moons Roach Baneling style it two straight games. Ret vs MC finally saw MC back into form, taking the his first win from the group.

Over on the blue stream we saw some awesome games from MMA and Kiwikaki, MMA Boxer's apprentice has been performing incredibly well this weekend, and seems to continue to pull back incredible come from behind victories. With Thorzain, July, Major and Fenix who have advanced through from the open bracket, the next two days will be nothing less than top level Starcraft.

Head on over to MLG to check it out!

  11. I don't really understand the whole watching other people play video games and listening to commentary.

    But I also dont't really like Starcraft much either.
