It's a peculiar afternoon indeed when the daily news round-ups include mention of how respectable Starcraft II teams will be partaking in a best-of-seven showmatch. Peculiar, perhaps, but also deeply awesome. For those unfamiliar with Dogecoin, the online-only crytocurrency is like Bitcoin except more playful -- it uses the Shiba Inu from the Doge Internet meme, for example, as a mascot. But while far less valuable than Bitcoins, it still carries actual monetary value.

Moving on, the upcoming showmatch is being organized by SC2CTL and will feature in-house casters wingnutsc and gallagation. The event will take place on January 7th 2014 at 20:00 EST on SC2CTL's twitch channel. Be there or be a rectangular thing. More information can be found here.
