Each Rundown will feature a couple of exclusive features that are not currently seen in the SC2 Community. Viewers of the stream will have an opportunity to call into the commentators and leave a voice mail with whatever rant they choose. Callers can leave messages about the commentators, the game, players or the tournament itself without having to leave their real name or engage in a live conversation.
Cyber Sports Network has secured exclusive rights to show 'FRAG The Movie' each night following the championship. 'FRAG' is an independently produced movie by Judd Saul and covers the last 30 years of the 'esports'. FRAG will open many eyes to the beginnings of eSports and to many of the issues facing the industry.
