Koreans vs the rest of us

Right now in Paris, at the Blizzard World Wide Invitational, there is a Starcraft tournament being played. The participants consists of Korean pros and some non-Koreas as well. It is half and half. The Koreans are not even currently the very best, althoug sAviOr, Sea)Shield or Stork are exactly bad either. The fourth Korean player is Siz)Kal, and I really don't know anything about him.

After the first round was played only Koreans went on to second round. All non-Koreans were sent to the losers bracket! I think that it is very telling of the difference in level in Korea and outside. Players like Dreiven and ToT)Mondragon( have a reasonable reputation in the western community and they lost!

In the losers bracket IdrA has advanced to second round, but he plays for eSTRO, so he could perhaps be considered half a Korean.

And in other news from WWI: Blizzard announced Diablo III was in development. Yawn!

    Well, nothing to see. This is not the game we are looking for.
