That is still my favorite replay of all time. Just such fucking good play.
There is nothing more to say. He is the man.
On another note, though, I hope that this doesn't lead to a decline or end of interest and growth in progaming. It's a little sad to come in here and see all these people going "Well, I'm going to quit playing/quit following pro games once Boxer is gone." A huge part of what made Boxer the man is how he interacted with his peers - the age old rivalry with Yellow, taking Oov under his wing, helping out all of SKT1, being the opponent that the younger Starleaguers have to go through... Boxer may be leaving, but the people he played with and the game he made is still there.

Makes me thankful, that, despite all the bad things you can say about the US Military, at least it's voluntary.
Yeah, I agree completely.
Man, I'm kinda misty eyed cause of this, I want to watch a match of him live before he retires (but I have faith that he can come back).
Best of luck to him, whatever he does, forever. Thanks for making BW beautiful.
EDIT: Btw, I wasn't even around when boxer was GOD, but the current was still strong when I started playing and I just went along with it, he amazed me many times even when he wasn't the undisputed number 1.
Korn, a famous german player at that time (the one running a poker site now), flew to Korea to attend in some big event (can't remember). He was visiting one of the PC Bangs together with Grrrr..., where Grrrr... played games against an upcoming korean terra player named 'Slayers_Boxer'
Korn was good with words and he described a much better than I could ever do. To put it in a nutshell: Grrrr... had no chance against Boxer (at least on LT) losing 5:1 or even 5:0.
Since then, I cared.
And I still do.
All the best to you, emperor!
