I've been around Teamliquid for the past 6 years, give or take. Excluding a large hiatus in 2006, I've closely followed e-Sports, ranging from SC, CS and WC3, initially working as a reporter and replay uploader for StarcraftGamers (GosuGamers now).
Many old school/veterans would know me as a twelve year old kid who made really awful posts and insights, just about to finish elementary school. Today, I'm eighteen, and I'm in the process of trying to get into university. Despite of this, as cliche as it may sound, my love and work for the community of Teamliquid will never disappear (although unfortunately I see that priorities will change in the future).
I guess I'll do the stereotypical thank you's. Most importantly, my fellow staff workmates, both past and present. Although they sometimes give me crap for what I do at certain times (they know what I'm talking about), they are really hard workers and without them, Teamliquid would not be the massive entity it is today, so cheers to them.
Secondly, I'll thank the KPF Crew (KPopFlash) for being a fun group of people to hang with (funnily enough I came up with the name after looking at the TLPD... guess who's ID I stole). I'd never thought I'd be an avid listener of Korean music, and even then, an avid listener of Korean music who follows Starcraft intensely (I think my transition of music has been... rap -> metal -> k-pop past 6 years). Props to Solinren, Kentor and the rest of the people for being there on those nights where mediocre Korean musicians perform on live television.
And I guess I'll use KPF to transition into my last thanks, streamers. I remember watching really awful 320x240 250kbps streams on toptalent's website. I was super excited watching these, as live reporting and discussing games with other forum members was such a fun experience. Today, we have 640x480, 500kbps streams, even 1mbps streams for those who can access it with their bandwidth. The availability of watching e-Sports events has risen tenfold thanks to the advent of streaming technology, and without the development of this, I don't think we'll be here today.
Enough blabbering. I guess I'll post something worth while now. Korean girlzzzzzzzz
