NESL's Iron Lady SC2 section is launching! Hopefully that means more female players in the big tournaments. They are also looking for other people to help out in ways other than competing, so if you're interested in doing your part for ESPORTS (lol) check out the links in that post. (Also ignore the haters in the thread...while TL for the most part is well moderated there are ALWAYS idiots who like to criticize the female-only tournaments.)


Would anyone be interested in participating in weekly/monthly community king of the hill nights? Please let me know by filling out this poll!


Also, I made a chat channel a while back. It is empty most of the time, but maybe you lovely people can make it more awesome! Join iheartstarcraft on the NA server if you want to hang out!

ETA: Yes, I voted in my own poll. ._.

How do you get started watching? When does the next "season" start? Does anyone care to explain it to someone who's really interested in watching and following the tournaments, but has no idea how to get started?

._. This is probably the friendliest place to ask all this stuff.

The ever-so-adorable and awesome Liquid`TLO is currently on his 14th hour of a 24-hour streaming marathon in which he is raising money for the organization Doctors Without Borders!

All the money he earns from ad revenue on his stream today is going towards this great charity, so if you tune in make sure you've turned off Ad Block on that page.

More information here: TLO's Streaming Marathon

Link to the stream: TLO TV

TLO fighting!

Just wanted to share a relatively new weekly comic that someone just showed me. There are 12 comics so far, and most of them are pretty good.

Woot, It has begun! :D

Molecart and Doa are kinda like Tastosis, version PG. Or something.

It's going to be on Sunday, April 24! Here is the official site with all information on how to participate: ESL Female Cup #5 Notable players include kellyMILKIES and Eleine Sun.

Looks like they need more people to sign up! For a list of participants, click here.

Guys, it's something of a fancy of mine to have esports, particularly SC2, become popular with women gamers! If you decide to participate, let us know here! And promote this tournament wherever you can. :)

Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend so far! Be sure to check in with the GSL World Championship Finals, which are going on HERE.

Hey everyone! As you may know, this weekend is MLG Dallas! Yesterday there were problems with the stream...

Today seems to be a little better, however! Here's a link to the official MLG stream:


If you're having trouble getting the stream to load on Firefox, try using Chrome - that's what fixed it for me. :)

If you missed the action yesterday, here's a recap for you:

SPOILERS: Standings from Day 1Collapse )

Who are you cheering for? Of course, I will always be rooting for Team Liquid (especially HuK!) but I would love to see former WC3 hero Grubby do well too.

HEY EVERYONE! GSL finals was last night! I missed it and need to watch the VODs, but feel free to discuss it here since I was inadvertently spoiled by my Twitter feed anyway. /facepalm

Warning for those who don't want to be spoiled: the comments will probably have spoilers.

Also, TSL is going on RIGHT NOW! It's being cast by Day[9] and Chill. Right now, it's the legendary SlayerS_Boxer versus former WC3 player Prae.NightEnD.


Hope you guys are having a great weekend!

Sorry for the lack of content...I am a bit groggy at the moment.

This is my favorite game so far this season:

(omg Secret girls stfu)

EDIT: Here is the whole match. LOL @ me for thinking the whole thing actually lasted 14 minutes. But I'm leaving the youtube one up for the nice scoreboard shot :D


I hope that one works better.

I felt this was rather relevant to post here considering Kelly is essentially the first english female caster on the GSL. Currently there's a lot of controversy surrounding her and a lot of the flak she's been getting seems unfair to me.

I honestly don't think she's that bad, she's obviously very rough around the edges and has a lot of room for improvement, but she does fine. Her accent doesn't bother me at all, but it could be because I'm asian and therefore I can understand her better. I've noticed that she's making an effort on her pronunciation too. Code A ro32 day 1, she was pronouncing zealot as ZEE-lot, now she's saying zel-lot, which is a lot better than Artosis' zel-LOT *snerk*

I just think people aren't giving her a chance, Tastosis were pretty rough when they started off in season 1+2 and they improved a lot. It took them three seasons to figure out that vehicle to e-sports speech after all. I do think Tasteless isn't a good partner for Kelly, maybe Artosis would be better. In fact if there's one thing I don't like about Kelly is that she goes along with Tasteless whenever he goes off on rants about how badly a player did in a match. You know, his "I just can't UNDERSTAND..." schpiels.
