Hate to see you go, love to watch you leave

The final round of the 2010 GSL Open Season 1 is this weekend.  Saturday, I think.  It’s a shame because I love watching these tournaments and I’m not so crazy about just watching commentated videos on YouTube, although that ain’t so bad, I guess.

I imagine this is what most football fans feel during the Superbowl.

The Perfect Game

I suck at Starcraft 2. I suck so completely hard.  It’s truly earth-shattering how poor I am at this game.

But I love to watch it. Yes, it’s the biggest SC2 competition in history, offering the largest cash prize in history, and the first in South Korea that’s actually sponsored by Blizzard. And having every game commented by Artosis and Tasteless makes it even better.

I’d also like to send out a message to the other SC2 fans who won’t read this because my blog never gets any hits:  Pay for the season pass.  Do it.  Sure, you can get the second and third matches of every round by using a JavaScript command in your title bar, but part of what makes subscribing to GomTV so critical is that it shows potential American companies that these events can make a lot of money for their sponsors.

Basically: if you like StarCraft and StarCraft 2, buy a season pass. It’s only $20.  And if you don’t like SC2, why are you watching these streams in the first place?
