If you've been enjoying our content, you know that a lot of work goes into our stories and although it may be a work of passion, writers gotta eat.

If you contribute 5 DOLLARS a month, we invite you to join our Discord and hang with the team. We wouldn't bother you like this if we didn't need your help and you can feel good knowing that 100% of your donation goes to the writers. We'd really appreciate your support.

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

For those who don’t know, NASL was an early SC2 league that ran in 2011. It ended in a lan┬átournament that had a huge amount of LAN issues, most notably the sound and downtime. The thing is, it ended up being a success because the finals was one of the great early finals of SC2’s history. The reason is because as time goes on, casual fans can only remember their last impression of an event, which is why TI4 was so derided, despite having some good games through most of the tournament.

In the same sense, ESL PL has had numerous technical issues with the internet in Brazil, but it won’t matter to the majority of the public if they land on a good set of games in the semifinals or final.
