Forums - Gaming Discussion - Dreamhack starcraft 2 on swedish state television

I like this ..e sport on television, and I like starcraft alot. i know south Korea it is much better than in europe and US.but still hope to see more of it even if its only Korean planers :).



Around the Network

Starcraft viewership has come down a lot since the pre-HOTS peak ($100k GSLs etc.)

Shouldn't it be LoL or Dota or CSGO that get the coverage, if anything?

Well i am old school :).



I think the reason starcraft 2 isnt the biggest game , is because its only korean players who got the skill, and american and european player cant compete with skill. So european and american player choose easier games ie dumb down shooter.

Heh yes we poor dunces in the western world cannot compete with the unrivalled skill and intellect of our South Korean brethren. :p

It's a cultural thing more than anything else... if such esports were as big in the west as they are in South Korea you'd see a lot more competitors getting involved from those regions.

That said, I enjoy watching Starcraft I & II a lot more than those mobas and shooters; it's rather remarkable what they're capable of doing, and the multitasking on both the macro and micro levels is just remarkable.
