FYI, GSL stars again tomorrow in less than 24 hours from this post that is. gomtv.net for all your needs

Idra dropped out due to returning back to NA. Rumor is there will be a north american gsl league, which will be huge if true.

Huk, Ret and Jinro and one other person i can't remember are the foreigners to cheer for.

HuK, Ret, Jinro, Haypro, and Moonglade are all foreigners that got in.

And the big announcement from Incontrol is likely at nasl.tv. The assumption is that it stands for North American Star-League. There's nothing on the site right now but a countdown timer that ends sometime this afternoon.

http://nasl.tv/

so some days late, but since no one else posted(or probably cares) I'll post it up just in case.

50 players, 400k in cash prize, 100k, 100k, 200k for the first 3 tournaments. It's no wonder idra left, this is a shit ton of money that he has a very good chance to win. I'm not a huge fan of incontrol's casting, but he is quite hilarious. The other co caster is greotorp, or whatever the spelling is. They are going to try to get quest casters like djwheat and day9. Unfortanely it seems that shows will be prerecorded then played streaming later on. Unlike the gsl which is live. Probably won't be a big deal in the end.

Even if you don't play starcraft(hell, i haven't touched MP in months) they are pretty exciting to watch. So hopefully some people check this out come April. If you're in the area for the finals I highly suggest you try to go live. Watching matches live is totally different and such an awesome experience.

This is incorrect. The Idra/Jinro showmatch was pre-recorded only because it was taking place in Korea and there was no way to stream it live without the casters causing lag for the players.

NASL matches will be shown live, confirmed by Incontrol on Team Liquid.

There will be rebroadcasts of the recorded stream later, but that's to allow Europeans a good time to view the matches.

Got a link? All of the people actually involved with creating the league have said live games.

***Ok, They had Russel Pfister on State of the Game and they cleared up all the details on this.

The commentating/casting will be done "live" in that they will actually be in the games in observer mode, but it will in fact be recorded one day and aired the next.

So.. we're both right, although you more than me. The show we watch will not involve live games, but it also isn't being cast from replays so they'll avoid the synch issues they had with the Jinro/Idra showmatch. That last part is by far the most important part to me. I could care less if the game itself is live as long as we don't have to worry about the funky thing where the commentary isn't in sync with the game we're watching. That was a mess.

meh, ign is an awful site. I don't know see anyone(at least on gaf) even considering IGN outside major matches. Between GSL and NASL, not to mention mlg(lol yeah right, they suck) there's too much SC2 already. I seriously have barely enough time to watch GSL. It's great that these games are finally taking off in the west, but...yeah ign lol.

it's pretty standard of idra. he doesn't play out when he feels he's behind, which he thought he was. still pretty funny on both players part. pretty funny that MMA played GSL last night with probably like no sleep and just dominated ganzi.

Tech Giants Amazon, Dropbox, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter, Yelp and Zynga, enlisted for upcoming gaming battle.

Los Angeles, CA – July 5, 2011 – Taking their battles off the technology platform, the most prestigious high tech companies in the world have been recruited to compete in the ultimate gamer showdown, the After Hours Gaming League.

The After Hours Gaming League will feature top tech talent duking it out on the virtual battlefields of the real time strategy game, StarCraft 2. The event, which starts on Thursday June 30th and runs for 9 consecutive weeks, is predicted to attract hundreds of thousands of viewers globally.

Each week, the corporate teams will present their named employees to battle against the contending technology firms. The tournament will culminate in an exciting final playoff round to be broadcast live on August 19 from the Facebook campus in Palo Alto, CA.

Organized and hosted by Sean “Day[9]” Plott, co-founder of Day9.TV, popular internet television host and PC Gamer’s “2010 Gamer of the Year,” this event is part of a push to introduce “eSports” or competitive gaming into mainstream culture.

World of Starcraft is now Starcraft Universe

Quote
    * A wide variety of monsters, bosses, and character classes. SCU classes include: Infantry, Special-Ops, Demolition, and many others.
    * A game save system. These maps will allows players to create, save, and load existing characters (a unique function uncommon to custom StarCraft maps).
    * Hundreds of customizable weapons, runes, and equipment to choose from. They can be acquired as loot or bought in shops.
    * Multiplayer experience. These maps allow (and encourage) up to twelve players in one match.
