Yep, I usually watch the webcasts of this for Starcraft and Warcraft. I don’t know how some of those guys are so damn fast.


#3

I saw some of these guys walking around downtown. They had WCG jackets on, wtf. I am so god damn envious of just how big some these games really are, impressive to say the least.

I want to go just to check it out. Damn all this homework.


#4

god dammit, I know

why the hell did they have to choose DOA4 out of all the fighting games :frowning:

I was watching some professional Quake 4 play the other day, it was wild stuff, I might go check this out


#5

Doa4 :frowning:


#6

$10? eh not that bad maybe I check if out if I have free time.


#7

^-- or free if you do the quiz thing, evidently…


#8

Sorry you are not a winner :shake:


#9

What time are you going Zach? Im thinking about going Saturday and maybe even staying around for Sunday! LOL!


#10

Has anyone gone and checked this out? My money’s on any Korean player in Starcraft. I can’t believe that game is still so popular, considering that I first demoed the preview at the WotC game center on the AVE roughly a decade ago this month. Counterstrike has also proven its longevity. Out of curiosity, anyone else play Supreme Commander?


#11

i watched the 2006 championships in their replay archives for starcraft. But it sucks to watch because there’s so many mid game concessions, and the players concede early. So you watch them get to factory and then all of a sudden neither player is doing anything. Pretty boring to watch. If anyone finds good replays let me know which.


#12

Hella forgot about this :confused: anyone who went wanna share how it went?


#13

vidz nao! :china:
