I really, REALLY hate how the prizes are so top heavy - why not make first place $50k and spread the other $30k out among the others?
The term monthly is not wrong, read the entire thing
1. GSL (Ran in January, March, April, July and September) - Main League. 32 Code S players tournament and 64 Code A players tournament. 2. World Championship (Ran in June and October) - 4 representative from each region in a 16 man tournament. 3. Ladder Tournament (Ran in February, August and November) - Tournament to decide best of Battle.Net ladder. Top 200 from each region are invited to participate in a preliminary for a 16 man double elimination tournament. 4. Blizzard Cup (Ran in December) - Top 8 (of GSL ranking I'm guessing?) will be invited to decide the best player of the year in a Bo5 Playoff format tournament.
by 2011 they will have a tournament every month, be it the GSL, the World Championship, the Ladder Tournament, or Blizzard Cup. Every single month there will be SC2 tournaments.
They are quite confident to commit that much money until 2011, even without knowing how successful SC II will be in Korea. Though, perhaps the tournament itself is something they hope will improve the game's sales.
Hey HP can you redo everything youve ever done because i have a small complaint?

Someone had to make a bold move, there's a void to fill right now.
