Starcraft 2: Live From the GSL Season 2 Finals

Are you a Starcraft 2 fan? Well the Giantbomb team recently took a trip to the heart of competitive SC2. They took a trip to Seoul, Korea to cover the Global Starcraft 2 League (GSL) finals between BoxeR and NesTea. You’ll notice a lot of differences between the US and Seoul, mainly that in Seoul, competitive video gamers are the equivalent of superstar athletes here in the US. This is why many professional gamers (especially Starcraft 2 gamers) believe that if you want to be the best, you have to train in Seoul with the Korean gaming scene.

The three Americans you see towards they end of the video, Nick “Tasteless” Plott, Dan “Artosis” Stemkoski and Greg “IdrA” Fields are prime examples of players who pick up their lives and move to Seoul to play with and cover the top SC2 players in the world.
