Even if downvoted, on Team Liquid HotBid's request: [spoiler] :P [/spoiler] JK of course, the coverage was really good. I only miss the interviews with IM_Nestea and IM_MVP, probably my 2 favourite players. Otherwise, it's good to see GS trying to get involved more in e-sports. IGN has already big lead with their IPL. Either way, thanks for the coverage and good luck in your new job! ;)

Trying to beat Koreans in Starcraft is like trying to beat Kenyans in a 100 meter dash.

Huk is awesome, and still in the tournament. I'm hoping he can pull out a win here. It would be huge.
