If you guys don't want a Liquid Flag at IPL in San Francisco I totally understand, but I would also be completely willing to make you one and send it your way. I have the capabilities if you guys could give me a high high high high resolution logo to use.

Can you expand a bit on the question not sure what you're looking for from me.
Maybe a better question is, how do you think people view Koreans on Foreign teams? When DRG was all-killing every team imaginable in the GSTL he was the scariest player on the planet. I remember when Nony heard he was coming to MLG his reaction on SotG was "No, anyone but him!" (I'm paraphrasing). However, when Taeja does the same thing in a smaller league, and has been winning literally everything besides that, there isn't that same fear surrounding him. What I'm asking is do you think Taeja would be getting more respect if he was still on SlayerS?

That's really puzzling to me too. I mean, it's not like Taeja was some no-name Korean player when he left SlayerS. He had already had incredible success in online tournaments, placed #1 in ELO on multiple occasions, had multiple all kills in the GSTL (in fact, he was the first player to have multiple GSTL all kills). It seems like unless you were only following Code S, you had to be aware that he was one of the best players in the world already at that point. That really makes me wonder what kind of scouting, or the lack thereof, goes into a lot of the foreign team signings of Korean players.
