    Remember that ridiculous archon toilet during an IGM game that gave a basically lost game back to the protoss?
    It was on new lost temple I think.

    I can't remember the players, maybe axslav as toss?
    I definitely remember one of the casters being HD because goodness he was irritating.


    Then another memorable moment was Idra vs that Korean from Boxer's team....I can't remember his name. Short skinny guy (that narrows it down...). T v Z. Idra was losing but then the terran accidentally blew up his own CC and Idra was definitely back in the game, and then he just quit.... leaving the entire arena speechless.

    That was casted by Day9 and DJWheat if I recall and they were speechless...

    @MMMig that was MMA

    I watched Ryung stream some and saw a new tvt build and a unique tvz, also saw GSL was on and got excited but it's just group selections

    which I sometimes watch but it's not what I was hoping for

    So watching SC1 ASL matches, I really wish I understood SC2 better, so I could understand whats going on in the matches. Are there some solid "new to SC2" streams?

    a few of the larger streamers do "learning" segments where they try and talk through exactly what they are doing any why. however i don't know of any that will be very beginning learning the ropes. you may be able to pick things up though. how new are you talking?

    I played a lot of SC1 back in highschool... Mostly I'm having a hard time keeping track of all the new/different units.

    i just played a game against a diamond protoss who did double gas steal into proxy oracle.

    he got 27 worker kills with his first two oracles and was still never ahead on workers at any point in the game

    I'm not very good ya know. barely staying in diamond.

    granted I know almost no one else plays at all so I have an advantage I just don't want anyone thinking I'm good. I'm so much worse than I used to be :(

    The last time I tried to get back into decent playing shape, Vari beat me like a drum for days; I think I didn't win a single game against him

    Sure, I could go for that again

    there seems to be enough interest, I'll make a signup

    Cast your vote for single elimination, double elimination, or round robin.

    We did round robin for the last one way back in 2013, worked well as it means everybody plays the same number of games and everybody plays everybody else.

    it also makes it easier schedule-wise most likely since we can give a couple of days for each matchup or for all the matchups rather than each one feeding directly into the next

    well these days with legacy of the void games don't really take that long

    last time we did a tournament was HotS where every game was going to be 5mins just to get build orders going, nowadays 8-9 mins is a decent midgame match

    Penny Arcade Curvy Star League 2017!

    June 17th @ 8pm EST (the tournament is listed in my timezone, AWST)

    Format, Round Robin, best of 3 unless we get like, fifty signups because then it will be too many games.

    At start of each match take the entire ladder map pool. Opponents alternate map vetoes, coinflip determines first veto.

    Aside from that the whole thing is super simple, we're doing round robin so that everybody gets to play the same number of games and receive the same amount of fun regardless of league or recent experience playing.

    We'll use the Penny Arcade ingame chat channel to organise things.

    @Variable @Yilias @3clipse @Kambing @MMMig @kedinik @WingedWeasel @SorC @Sceptre @tugga @theSquid @Keamien

    and anyone else who you guys know is still around on the Internet even if they haven't played since Wings of Liberty, who cares, neither have the rest of us!

    Here is a nice example of how utterly unable to evaluate game state some people are.

    I'm playing a PvP, and we're both going mass phoenix.

    This guy stays in the game for about 10 more minutes after this image was taken.

    He should have left at this point. There is no catching up in phoenixes, and there is no tech switch that will save you once you've invested this heavily already.

    You won't be the only one signing up at that skill level, and the round robin format means you don't have to worry about getting unlucky and matched up with somebody beyond your level in the first round and only getting to play one game. Everybody in the tournament will get to play everybody else in the tournament once, so it'll be a nice mix of games.

    are we gonna do a playoff for the top few? you can even bump first place ahead a round or make them a finalist or whatever a la SSL or ASL this season (I can't remember all the names, I'm getting old)

    I'll set up a separate single elim bracket for a different day for the top four or top eight depending on how many signups we get total, and we can have someone stream that or something like that.

    Going to try and partake, but I probably won't know until like the night before. Does challonge have an expiration date for sign ups? Never used it before

    Also @CareerKnight and I play coop a lot, not sure if he plays ladder

    And then in the tournament, I will forget all that and play Zerg. :rotate:
