a change to burrow would be nice, as those timings were fun. however it won't really fix anything.

next up: marines are buffed so they can outrange oracles and skilled terran players can use micro to skillfully kill skillfully microed  oracles and skillrays and then colossus get a range buff to deal with marines and then banelings get a radius buff so they have a better chance at getting in close and doing damage and all of a sudden we're at world of warcraft levels of balance

Gah, I definitely could have watched it, but I didn't. VODs are probably out there somewhere I'd think, maybe I'll check them out.

The next MLG is actually relatively close to where I live and I'm in town for once. I'm considering stopping by for a day or so, but I have yet to decide

i'd love to go to one too if it was local. i'm surprised they've never done one in seattle. it would be a good location for korean players.

My only guess of why there hasn't been one in Seattle probably has more to do with the fact that it's close enough to Anaheim (California), doubt MLG at least would host there. Doesn't mean there's isn't plenty of other viable tournament.. groups though.

So apparently now you can no longer be demoted during the ladder season, only during placement matches. Otherwise you can only move up.

I think this is a nice change, it'll encourage players not doing well to keep playing due to a lowered risk, without having removed said risk completely

i could foresee some major problems with this, unless if mmr still works the same way. when i first played sc2, i was put in to platinum, but i actually belonged in silver. it might not be so great if you're stuck in platinum but actually playing silver players.

this makes sense and yeah I see problems with this, last season i was placed in silver but lost like 75% of my games and then was put in bronze this season.

Yeah that is true. At the very least however, you can always leave your league and reset your mmr completely (I don't think the effects your hidden skill ranking, but it should help)

now starter edition people can play at any expansion level and any race. i'm glad they're being proactive about bringing new players in.

there will never be LAN

i honestly would never use it. but they should at least have a "tournament edition" where they use LAN at professional events. it's embarrassing every time the game times out at a live match.
