[QUOTE=zzlawlzz;34102891]I just played the first one the map was great, but I expected something longer... Great map![/QUOTE] Play map its about 1 hour longer and 2x harder.
I just saw the best thing ever. Turn's 4 SCVs chase down a defiler of Hydra on move command all across Ground Zero, slowly killing it.

[QUOTE=Jacko245;34109211][url]http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=296839[/url] Anyone heading there today?[/QUOTE] Man, that would be awesome and I would go if I still lived there, Newcastle is the best and everyone knows it.

[QUOTE=Jacko245;34109524]Im thinking about going; yet i don't play starcraft. I just watch pretty much ALL of the streams... Will i still be welcome there?[/QUOTE] Yes, of course.
Went on a huge win streak today, got to rank 24 from slightly over 50. Feels so good. [img]http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/4673/sc2c.png[/img] On a side note, I bought a new screen recently. It's great, finally have widescreen.
I went to the Barcraft, and TotalBiscuit was there; everyone started clapping and cheering when he came in the room :v:

[QUOTE=Dominicus;34113016]I've always wondered why. Because he's very average at Starcraft. And any other game at that.[/QUOTE] Because he's a personality, and a figurehead of British e-sports. He also does mountains of work on his youtube channel for free, mostly giving exposure to indie games. Husky isn't that good at Starcraft either compared to the pros, but he is still the most subbed caster on youtube.

He has already stated several times that if he did not he wouldn't have been able to pump out 25% of what he's doing now. Husky's the most subbed caster (haven't checked if that still stands true, but I'll take your word for it now) because he's goofy as fuck. If Day[9] had a Youtube channel from the start he would have loads more, I reckon. [QUOTE=markg06;34113225] -Snip- The fuck is this shit?

Of course he gets ad revenue, that's probably his major income source, but it's from youtube. I'm not a fanboy or anything, I think what he does is good but most of his popularity is because of his accent. Husky has over 600k subscribers, HD has almost 400k and Day9 has 250k, although his dailies on blip.tv get loads of views and his streams get around 10k viewers. He is much more of a driving force in the community than Husky.

[QUOTE=markg06;34113555]Fuck knows why TB's accent is annoying as shit.[/QUOTE] He puts it on over his [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSHHbfY6MVc"]Geordie accent[/URL], which would undoubtedly be less appealing to foreigners.
[QUOTE=markg06;34113555]I got cannon rushed of course I'm going to have less resources and structures than the other guy that's common sense, I've won games with my overview being half of the other guys.[/QUOTE] I know, but the system could very well have decided, going by the overview, that you should have lost the game.

He gives me the impression that he thinks quite high of himself. Not sure how.

[QUOTE=markg06;34113947]What a fucking cunt.[/QUOTE] Report him.
[QUOTE=iSnubWaitWhat;34114033]Report him.[/QUOTE] Just have done.
Last year: Every non-Code S-protoss does 2 base colossus/vray turtle. Now, Dimaga does this turtle style one game and every protoss is crying on Team Liquid. Bloody hypocrits. Context: Dimaga turtled up to 15 infestors and 25 blords with like 30 spines since he would lose in a direct engagement because of mothership.
Last time I checked TB was Gold and Husky was Plat/Diamond. I believe HD was masters but he's not that great a caster. Day9 is GM with all races and Tastosis are both masters in korea. Ladder rank doesn't really matter with casting, its just game knowledge and casting ability. If you're like TB and you have 0 game knowledge you're going to be play-by-play casting, in other words stating the obvious for the visually impaired. Not that I don't like TB, I love the things he does, he's just not a very good caster imho, if he wasn't British or efamous he would still be casting WoW Arena.

When Day[9]'s casting Dreamhack or Blizzcon is still kinda play-by-play but with some insight for those of us who are more experienced in the game.

I really don't care much for TB, however last year at i43 there was discussion about casters for the next iseries, and about 80% of people only recognised TB and said they wouldn't even be interested in watching without him, even in England.
