in the past year, tons of tournaments have been doing what TSL4 is going to be. all the best players constantly play in tournaments against each other, online and in person.
also, this tournament will be casted from replays most likely so i cant wait to get the results spoiled like always.. as if i could get excited in the first place from replay casts.
oh yeah, not to mention all the lag issues and fluke wins because of it.. making this tournament mean a lot less than a lot of other tournaments..
anyways, im sure itll be great. but i think people should take a step back and realize how very not special this is at all, and how its already been outclassed by several tournaments in the past year before foaming at the mouth with excitement.
The games are some of the most entertaining games I have seen... 18 NA qualifiers, means I get to watch more and more entertaining games.
Just because you don't get it... doesn't mean everyone else in the world doesn't. Enjoy whatever you do, I'll be having fun.
You make no sense. You claim just because you've seen some of the most entertaining games before in TSL's you assume it will continue to provide specially entertaining games?... Every other tournament isn't able to provide special games because they're not called TSL? That's the same logic used when buying a lottery ticket from a "Lucky Gas Station" because you won before when you bought a lotto ticket there... The gas station has no influence on the lottery ticket.
Watching a tournament, I have never again been as hyped, cared so much about each match, read all the player interviews with the same passion, felt such a sense of community, as I did during TSL3. It had everything I wanted. It had the best commentators, the best players, it had an excellent stream. The website for the vods was the best thought out of any I've seen for a tournament, I had full overview over the vods, yet I was never spoiled because of the way they displayed it, and anything I wanted to know was a few clicks away. TSL3 is for me the best tournament I've ever experienced, and I dare only hope TSL4 will trumph it. By best of all I've seen, that includes the GSL, DH, NASL, IPL, ESL and large bunch of smaller ones. Only 3 of those have ever come close to comparing, yet they all lacked in some of the things I described above and never brought in more to make up for it. So this for me is huge and very special, and many others feel the same.
sure i'm pretty hyped since my first SC2 tournament was in fact TSL3, but that was when there were pretty few other major tournaments and SC2 was even younger/fresher... I'm sort of worried TSL4 cannot meet the high expectations of the community... also, to be honest, the teaser was one fucking disappointment... can't believe the same art studio which did this designed those fan-art T-shirts... and, of course, pretty sad BoxeR is undergoing rehab right now and therefore most likey won't be able to participate
Once every now and then, all the true nerds gather to determine who is the best. The other nerds only have seats to watch, but they are amazed by this esports shaping tournament. Players rose, history has been written.
Now it's time to write a new chapter.
You don't choose to play zerg. The zerg choose you.
