After a long hiatus, we're happy to announce that TL Attack is back. Hooray!
Time and Format
We'll be running the show every other week with two hosts and a new guest each time. The show will air every other week starting Wednesday, Oct 03 7:00pm GMT (GMT+00:00). VODs will be made available quickly following the broadcast.
After exhaustive market research we've determined that midday on Wednesdays is the best time for everyone to watch. But seriously it's to accommodate the player and host schedules so we don't conflict with tournaments and other important non-TL Attack things.
Here is a video of TL Horse ATTACKING a city, ESPORTSopolis, set to ominous music.
ATTACKING, Get it??
We got a lot of complaints about our hosts overshadowing our guests the last few episodes of TL Attack so we decided that this time we'll go with two regular hosts that do not have big outspoken personalities: EG.iNcontroL and ROOT.CatZ. We feel they're the perfect duo to stay quiet and let the guests be the center of attention for the show.
First Episode and Guest
The first episode of the new TL Attack will be on Wednesday, Oct 03 7:00pm GMT (GMT+00:00). The first guest will be Liquid`Sheth and we'll be playing the Heart of the Swarm Beta, so get ready for some weird strategies and imbalanced units. It's a pity there's no warhound anymore, was really looking forward to our pro guests losing repeatedly to it. Additionally, we may play some Wings of Liberty, especially for certain (cough Kulas Extreme) custom maps.
Do you want to play?
OK so do you want to play against the special guest on the show, in front of potentially millions of tenths of hundreds of thousands of viewers? Here's your chance: create a cheerful in true TL Attack spirit using this template:
You can put anything you want on it, about any subject (the players, host, show, TL, ESPORTS in general, etc) and we'll even show it on stream before you play your match. Just post your cheerful in this thread with your battle.net ID (character + code) and we'll invite the winners during the show, so make sure to watch. We'll also be selecting potential opponents for Sheth in the normal, random trivia way.
See you guys next Wednesday!
TeamLiquid Attack! is a fun, casual event where a popular professional StarCraft 2 player plays custom 1v1s against community members. Typically, the player attempts creative or non-serious strategies while sharing friendly banter with the hosts. The show is a great way to get to know the personality of the popular player that might not normally be seen in serious ladder games or in tournaments.
Previous episodes of TL Attack can be found on TeamLiquid's YouTube Channel, featuring guests like TLO, ThorZaIN, Naniwa, DongRaeGu, and CatZ.
