Nice, she can actually play. Most people that post themselves playing covers of songs have mediocre skill at best; bad ears, bad tone quality, etc. She actually has good technique, phrases lines nicely, and plays in a way that tries to imitate the actual instrumentation.

Huge news for the esport scene with that HD version!

afaik, there are some popular priv server clusters in korea which have improved features that bnet dont provide. Maybe this will kill it all.

here's to hoping this just consolidates the player pool instead of these small random fragmented servers we currently have

They are actually making Fish (the korean server you are thinking of) into an official Bnet server.

Hm.. Off-suite socks..

ability to rebind keys? this might change the field, just by a little though.
15 years of elite muscle memory vs millenial convience
This might give the BW scene a little boost as I've noticed a ton of old timers wanting to pick up the game again, hopefully some ex and bored sc2 players want to test themselves

I'll be tuning in for SC Remastered this summer. If any of you want to join in on some Race Wars, lemme know.

If you forgot what Race Wars is:

- create an 8-player map like The Hunters or BGH
- everyone scouts each base and allies with the same race
- it ends up being a 3v3v2

It's a super fun game with friends.

Fuck, I'm SO pumped for BW HD. I wanna be 16 all over again. If Fish server becomes an offical Bnet server like like Jinro says, gg for me. Spending 16 hours a day grinding to get good again.
