Korean Competition at a Different Level at the WCL
The World Cyber League finals have finished, and it looks like the Korean players have a leg up. Or, at least a few fingers.
A recent story in Canada.com talked about the disappointment of the Canada team at the World Cyber League finals in Seattle, and the competition they face there is fierce. But apparently there are none quite like the Korean players.
“They get paid very well,” Nick “Testy” Perentesis told Canada.com. “They have sponsored teams; team houses where you can go and just play and don’t pay any rent. You get paid to play. It’s actually a completely different game over there.”
Apparently, they have their fingers insured. That’s how serious they are–their entire livelihood rests on their ability to move their digits, and they pay to make sure of that.
I think Korea is the reason I don’t play Starcraft anymore, actually.
