Due to the community backlash on the Pay-Per-View model in eSports, Cyber Sports Network has decided to not charge the $50.00. We had planned on charging for the community to watch 8 Top skilled players battle for a measly $100. We sincerely apologize for our lack of understanding the community and for even suggesting that $50 was a fair amount to pay for such high quality SC2 action.
+ Show Spoiler [Project Statement] +
The Cyber Sports Network (CSN) is proud to bring the SC2 community a fresh look at StarCraft II competition. The "Rundown" is a weekly eight (8) person, single elimination invitational Cup with commentary by Rance "Mouth" Costa and Garrett "Gwin" Perchel. Combining the 'Nerd analysis' of Gwin and the mouthy antics of Rance, along with sweet music beats, viewer call ins and exclusive content, the Rundown adds a needed edge to the SC2 community.
This week's Rundown will now be Free to watch (as were the previous 10 events) and will feature the newest Rundown Champion, TheMista, attempting to hold his title without falling to 'Sleep'. DTGrow is back for more along with some highly skilled newcomers, Drunkenboi, JohnyRecco and Ender. JimRising and moOK round out the 8 invites to play in this week's Rundown. Please tune in and support a competition that believes in supporting skill, not twitter followers, and as always.. is FREE!

Due to CSN not charging $50 to watch, we must warn you that we will be running ads on our stream. We may also need to cap the number of viewers this week to 1000. We hope this is not an inconvenience to the community.
Each week Gwin provides the Nerd Ballers of the StarCraft II community with indepth nerd analysis and a live camera feed to show off his tailored suit jacket.
Garrett "Gwin" Prechel is a relative newcomer to the esports scene. A self proclamed "Nerd" (with a capital N) Garrett brings the RTS knowledge as a skilled player of both Brood War and Starcraft II. Also in E-Sports, Garrett acts as the principle caster for Check Six Gaming's Starcraft II Division. Outside of E-Sports, Garrett works as a freelance voice actor and singer for film and TV.
Team Statistics will be completely automated following this week's Rundown and will be updated ASAP. Due to not being able to charge for viewers, we have been forced to layoff 2 1/2 staff members.
Really cool graphical representation of the Rundown winners. viOLet is the new 'black' don't you all know?
