And they're STILL terrible.” The executive went on to say, “all the foreign fans were anxious for HuK and IdrA to play each other in the second round of Code A last season. Neither even got that far, because they lost to Terious and Avenge. I run this league. I made those brackets. I don’t even remember seeing those two names before. Ever.”

Our casters, Pull and Senex, are the pioneers of casting in the FRB ("Fewer Resources per Base") scene! They might not be the most well known but they are 150% passionate about this variant of SC2 and I wouldn't even think about replacing them. We've talked about potentially bringing in a guest caster for one or two broadcasts (Orb said he would; we're not sure about it) but I'm quite content even if we don't get any.

Aside from that, our $150 prize pool doesn't exactly get any "top level" casters panties moist, even though we have a talented lineup (that's going to get more talented ).

I'm switching to Terran in an attempt to reignite some life into the game. I just was not having fun laddering as Zerg in my league, thought dropping to bronze would make it better but still was not having fun.

I think learning a new race will do me some good.

Okay, fine. One 'AAA' player.

Still, this can only bring positive attention to FRB.

Last night on Inside the Game, the FRB concept was brought up by DJWheat... Wheat had read the thread (the Breadth of Gameplay thread) whereas Painuser, Idra and Incontrol just skimmed it.

Painuser: Mules would be OP

Idra: There would have to be some balance tweaks but if this became the standard it would significantly increase the skillcap of the game.

Incontrol: Prefaces by saying that he's always resistant to change. Says that it can never happen ever, and that pro players won't waste their time on it.

DJWheat: The concept itself recognizes that there would need to be balance tweaking. He cites that in other games, some of the most popular and influential versions of competitive gaming have been done on "pro mods", and

IncontroL: NO ITS IMPOSSIBLE.


And then they moved on.

So I tried to get on "Live on Three" tonight to plug the tournament since the concept was brought up but they didn't bring up (and probably don't know about) the tournament. Unfortunately they didn't have time for calls, or else I would have gotten on according to one of the mods. Bummer.
