I will update this thread every Saturday after we record matches, every Monday night to include a new poll, and every Thursday to name our new competitor. -------- LATEST UPDATE 5/23/10: VODs are up for the qxc (T) vs. HuK (P) match in glorious HD below!
That'll do it for us here at the Showcase Series guys. It has been a pleasure to bring you these matches throughout the weeks. I hope you guys enjoyed it and thanks for letting me be a part of the community.
Till next time! We're not done with SC2 quite yet. -------- What is the KotBH Showmatch Series? GotFrag and Major League Gaming are pleased to host and broadcast a Starcraft II, King of the Beta Hill exhibition tournament. In a winner takes all, last man standing format, the winner advances each week and the loser sits out a week. The action will be intense and the matches should give everyone, whether or not you have the beta, a chance to see what the game looks like being played by pro players. Every match broadcast with expert commentary and insight by our veteran Starcraft broadcast crew.
One match, streamed live, and one winner each week. The winner each week advances to next week's match to face a new player voted on by community. A group of players will be selected each week by MLG and a a poll created. The poll winner each week will earn the spot in the next week's match against the previous week's winner. Once a player loses, they must sit out a week before being eligible for another poll vote. Matches are best-of-five. Final winner is determined the last week of beta, last man standing takes all.
Map Rotation This rotation will not change throughout the series.
Lost Temple > Steppes of War > Desert Oasis > Kulas Ravine > Scrap Station > Steppes of War > Lost Temple
Feel free to ask any questions in this thread and I'll try my best to respond to them. We're trying to be as transparent as possible with the community so the cast is the best out there. If you have any criticisms, concerns, or feel like just flatout flaming us because of how horrible we are, feel free! Criticism helps us make the show better for you guys.
How do I get added to the poll? Simply preform well on the ladder. I'll be playing close attention to replays and talk of replays. Innovative players will earn a spot in the list most of the time. One big thing to note is that Blizzard employees cannot participate in the showmatches. This means that KHB, CGM, Dayvie, etc, will never be in a match (unless they request to be thrown into the poll).

I know a lot of people wanted to see CowGoMoo play, any reason he wasn't included in the poll?
Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crown and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness.

Personally, I would like to see if people can counter (particularly a terran player) Oversky's ZvT, and he's a very solid player - so voted for him. I also would like to see if CGM can get inspired to play for one of these, though I would understand if he didn't (especially considering the blizzard cap )
