Then you, sir, are totally oblivious, or better ignorant, of the great things these people have achieved in the past.
Of course he isn't. It's a different game. They aren't super good in SC2. Not even close actually.
No one said they are "super good in SC2." The hype is due to the fact that they are the best BW players in the world at the moment, and most of them are among the best to ever play the game. And now the switch to SC2 is beginning, and they will be at a FOREIGN event, which is a big deal whether you guys realize it or not.
It would be hype-worthy if they were playing SC BW.
With the recent PL matches in mind, I'm a little torn on this. Sure it will probably be hype as fuck but I really hope they step up their game. Flash and Jaedong did not impress me whatsoever, it's a shame KeSPA pushed SC2 so hard on the players, the result was just "well this kinda sucks". IMO people have been hyping these players too much (myself included) and I fear this will be a disappointment if none of them can show code-S level play or something equally impressive.
