TV to make a Nerd Happy

So I was totally geeking out last weekend. I had hooked my laptop up to the TV and was watching TSL live (or as live as it was). Nerd heaven!

The games were reasonably good and will probably only get better as the tournament goes on. And I like the commentators, even if I don’t quite agree on everything they say.

I may suck at the game, but it is absolutely not true that the level shown here is anywhere near the level in Korea. It may be more unpredictable due to less uniformity in strategy and nerves of people not used to playing in tournaments, but you rarely see Koreans completely screw up like we sometimes see among foreigners.

All in all the entertainment was still great. I only wish I some of my friends appreciated Starcraft enough for me to invite them over for Starcraft-on-TV and a beer. Alas Starcraft is still a minor thing here.

  6. I suck at it too... I thought I was good at it, then went online and had my behind handed to me by some Korean kids... it was sobering and it felt like crap...

  7. Hmm, those two last comments seem so real, but I fear they are just link-spam reaching a new level? How do I figure out what it really is?

  9. Well I saw a game on saturday around midnight. The zerg player sucked hard, and it was over in about 10-15 minutes. Should have been over in 5 since the terran player just stood outside of the empty zerg base looking... Meh..
