    I don't expect too much excitement over this considering the general participation in this thread but I gotta mention...

    Artosis and iNcontroL are doing a talk show called The Pylon Show. they stream on twitch but *** they're also releasing it as a podcast ***. I'm glad to have something like this period but the fact that I can subscribe to it and listen through my podcast app while I drive adds a whole lot for me so I wanted to make sure everyone knows.

    definitely going to check this out. the recent trend of "podcasts" that are video content has been incredibly unfortunate.

    I'm actually not sure what Artosis looks like, so I don't know how much I'm going to miss out on not having a camera.

    Made me think of this:

    it's funny reading co-op patch notes. virtually everything is always a buff. not to say that's bad but it is just kinda bizarre after playing the competitive side of things for years

    re: pylon show

    i like this podcast. production quality issues aside (artosis' mic still cutting out) it is entertaining. although i personally don't have much of an opinion on most topics they discuss since either 1) i didn't see/experience the thing they are discussing so i have no frame of reference 2) i am just trusting their authority on the subject

    i do envy their relationship with blizzard. every time i hear incontrol say "oh yeah i talked to the team at blizzard" i just think wow wtf. in reality i understand that's a result of cultivating a multiyear relationship and being a major icon of the scene. but still that's fucking cool

    edit: didn't know that catz got into the casting game. he is doing WCS challenger right now

    Nationwars concluded this weekend. At this point, they should just call it Innovation vs the World as he has rekt that past few seasons of it. It was still a great finals though. Would suggest watching the VODs if you haven't seen it.

    First time I've seen a packed audience for StarCraft 2 in awhile.

    "Wait" he says... do I look like a waiter?

    i sincerely hope when warcraft 4 happens that they make competitive co-op as the multiplayer go to. i love the hero system but i think the co-op model opens up so many fun things. nightmare to balance but it would be awesome. i can already see stukov's stuff working for the lich king/the forsaken/the ebon blade/whatever just make the graveyard or whatever they want to call it the town hall. any of the otherwordly factions (ala the burning legion...assuming they still exist) can utilize something like nova's calldown system. just lots of potential. i love co-op

    I like the new co-op map I think but holy shit any mutators there will be catastrophic. There is just so much shit to go through. But it kinda "fixes" that new protoss rogue AI map since instead of an NPC you get another unit

    haha, I didn't see most of the day but I did catch that interaction

    wanna post a really great GSL group since this thread is somewhat bumped. I mean, they're all great but there's a reason I'm not sharing the group with Maru or the group with Innovation (my favorite Terrans, both of whom successfully reached the ro16) but rather the group with a 16 year old Italian zerg player... I'll let you all guess why it is.

    happy 8th anniversary! if you log in there's some fun stuff going on (new bases set off fireworks. not sure what else as of yet, that may be it)

    but you get an achievement so I felt maybe that warranted a post

    while I'm here, GSL vs. The World soon which is all but designed to have some foreigners get far. extra nice to have it at the same time as a foreigner reaches ro16 in GSL. we may get Maru (winner of the first 2 GSLs of 2018) vs Serral (winner of virtually every tournament outside of Korea this year) in the finals (I believe the bracket is set up that if they fight that's where it will be)

    It's a small thing but the title screen no longer cycles through different backgrounds and characters. When I first installed it, the title screen was randomly chosen. Halfway into the Terran campaign, if always defaults to Jim Renar's bar. How do I set it to Random again?

    @WingedWeasel I thought I had you on btag but I don't. We should play some co-op. I've got a week until the WoW expansion, and I'm bored of just grinding non-mutators, and I don't want to do mutators without voice comms or at least someone who will follow a plan.

    I'm keen to play sometime roughly ~10-11hrs from the time of this post.

    they really ought to change Hard coop to be the same game speed as Brutal. Sometimes I don't feel like trying a Brutal Mutator and just want something a bit cruisier, but I just can't stand playing on the slower game speed.

    so zerggirl has been doing co-op teaching/training with a variety of pros. i tuned in when she was playing with rotterdam and then catz. there were a few people in chat who were wondering if this was the first time catz ever played starcraft since he seemed so confused. it was pretty entertaining.

    i dunno if she does co-op a lot or not, this may have been some sort of promotional event? i know zombiegrub does co-op occasionally. i think zerggirl mentioned that she would be doing more co-op today, below is the video i was watching yesterday

    Despite wishing for not-polarity and not-propagators naturally those are the fucking mutators I got on try 1 this week. Even worse we almost had it! But a stray prop snowballed into a billion. I don't get why banelings can be converted but apparently they can. I tried slamming a ton of them into the horde but alas didn't work.

    That was the closest I've come because...well let's say it just hasn't gone well
