he made something like 600 dollars from donations from one night of streaming on afreeca

yes but is that sustainable? and even if it is that is not the competitive circuit. it is possible probable even that he could make a living playing star craft still but that is not the same as him competing in tourneys etc.

i never said it would be sustainable, just a little bit of interesting information. savior did try sc2, but he said he couldnt understand it, so i dont know if he would be able to become a sc2 pro and succeed

savior was a zerg player that came around when zerg were under represented and doing poorly. most of the stuff that zergs do today was created by savior, more or less. savior was the guy that played zerg killers on anti-zerg maps and still won. for me, savior is the only true bonjwa

this guy was like the chosen one in the scene, and then he made a huge, huge ****up and alot of koreans are still angry and bitter about it (especially players and coaches.) people loved him and now hated him for what he did. his stream on afreeca is highly controversial, and despite being an actual criminal he still managed to get 600 dollars in donations from people watching.

i dont think he will ever play professionally in korea again. im not sure about the foreign scene, that remains to be seen. me personally, i just cant bring myself to hate the guy. i agree with his punishment, and as a fan of sc im angry that he would **** up not only his own career but the career of others too, as well as endanger the scene. but i loved watching him play at his peak, and i love watching his streams. its just sad that someone that has done so much can ruin it all at the end

Do you see all of us don't have links to our player profiles? That's cus we've either got warnings or have been infract-ed about having external links.
Actually I never really checked. I guess since I post mostly in this thread and every once in a while in some other ones, I was able to make the slip?
*Points at sig*
Lots of link

On a side note, SC2 with a mechanical keyboard is probably the best thing ever
wow, how do you/have had 9 warnings and 4 bans on TL?

hmm, correct me if I'm wrong, but, he was one of the guys responsible for match fixing, correct? Was there something else he did? Sad that he can't play anymore, but, it was his own doing!

Edit: Final game of finals:
Moon vs Huk! What happened to July and bomber? Guessing Huk took out July(mentioned something about it on stream) and Moon got Bomber?

there was 11 or so guys that threw/fixed games, including savior. however, he also helped organise other match fixes. he even went as far as to blackmail some of the fixers to continue with the threat of exposure. really scummy thing to do =/ afaik he got one of the worst punishments, along with a fella by the name of won jongseo (who was the captain of the ogn sparkyz team.) alot of the players were from that team, and sadly they dissolved after losing all their core players.

it is indeed sad that he cant play anymore, but he still streams his first person bw games on afreeca. sadly afreeca is really tough to get access to without a korean ip and is really choppy, but some nice koreans have been restreaming it on daumplayer (which is easy to use and free), as well as some people on teamliquid restreaming that.

id also like to apologise for being a bit of a dick about sc2. id like to take the chance to get into it more after my exams but i cbf buying a pass thingy for the games, so ill probably have to check out the vods on gom

oh, wow, didn't realize he even went as far as blackmailing, but, nothing we can do now. Hopefully, he'll get into SCII and start over, make it up for the fans, possibly compete in the foreign scene, etc.... but, have to wait and see.

@Bolded Don't worry about it, it happens. Whenever you get a chance to play some SCII, the channel is overclock.net. Assuming you played BW, I'm sure you'll be able to move up and get into it fairly quickly since the core/mechanics are still similar for the most part.

As for vods, well, you can watch the first game of each match for GSL for free, but, have to get a pass for the rest. MLG/NASL/IPL/DH, etc.... you can usually watch the stream(check sidebar for TL). You can also get some replays from their respective sites(day9 for DH) and there are also some matches on Youtube

Guys, new maps for season 3! http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/2943356#blog
