Oh StarCraft, how I’ve missed you. I’m going to be dead honest here: Until last week, I had not touched a single game in the StarCraft II universe. No Wings Of Liberty, no Heart Of The Swarm. None of that, at all. So naturally, I was the right guy to throw into the Legacy Of The Void beta. Naturally. And you know what? The game was easy enough for this noob to pick up on. Here’s a couple of things that I dug the hell out of from the beta.

Some days you get stories that you look at and think "yeah, that's not happening", and other days it isn't so clear cut. Looking at a rumor posted late last night, I was sure that I was reading a lot of misinformation seemingly straight out of Blizzard HQ. But looking at it again, it seems a lot of it could be true. Maybe. Ok, probably not.  That includes a rumor about the final StarCrat II's release date.

Have you ever tried explaining the concept of eSports to a non-gamer? It’s really difficult! Those with an old train of thought just can’t get their head around the fact that some people play games for a living. Even then, they don’t understand how stressful and dedicated someone has to be to be truly great. For that reason, I love all the eSport documentaries that have been coming out, as it gives some insight into the world of competitive gaming. Valve kicked off the trend with Free To Play, and not too long after, Riot Games debuted Road to Worlds. Razer are following their footsteps. They’ve unveiled their very own documentary.

While gaming may be a larger industry than movies, the only overlap has been in the form of (mostly) bad adaptations. Now, Lionsgate is getting in on the eSports theme, but don't worry, it doesn't involve any new trashy movies.

Pro-gamers have a ridiculous amount of mental agility. To make hundreds of accurate clicks per second and all that - it's pretty impressive. Now, SteelSeries is teaming up with Tobii to bring gaze-tracking technology to the equation, and it's seriously futuristic. But it's not just for eSports - you can even use your eyes in Skyrim.

We've seen some impressive prize pools in eSports this year. All in all, it's been a good year to be a pro-athlete in eSports. Usually, the biggest money can be found in the MOBA, but now it looks like better people are looking at Starcraft, and using their weird betting currency.

Over at BlizzCon, the StarCraft 2 championships took place this weekend. As you might expect, the two finalists were Korean, as Kim "sOs" Yoo Jin took on fan favorite Jae Dong for the prize of $100k and the title of World Champion.

Last year in December, Evil Geniuses and Team Liquid joined forces to create a training facility in Seoul, South Korea. Now, less than a year later, the school has closed its doors. What does this say about Western StarCraft II?

Even though most people are using this weekend to celebrate the start of Spring, apparently we will be getting a cold front and it will feel nothing like Spring on Saturday. However, you can bundle up and brave the outside world for two cool events this Saturday.
