Cool to see this becoming a real thing.
Crap, I missed it.
I watched most of the SC2 tourney and I've gotta say it was fantastic. All the legendary Brood War players are starting their transition to SC2 as well, and they held a mini-tourney for them which was really fun to watch.
I only caught some of the last day but it was great. Pretty much every MLG event this year's been a lot of fun to watch.
I gotta get in on this
I would love for this to get a lot bigger than it already is!
I wish it was still on TV.
I missed it but I watch the League of Legends matches on YouTube... Just watching these games makes me better... whether its Halo, League, or CoD. If you guys don't play League, you should. Prolly the best free to play game EVAR!! =D
Not really a fan of watching but I suppose its a good thing to see.
Minority sports FTW!
