Forum Showcase Matches

General Discussion
1 2 3 23 Next
Many of us on the forums have never played against other forum members, or even seen many of them play. I know I've played very few people I've met on the forums, and only watched a couple of higher league players by joining their games to learn a thing or two.

Anyways, who here would like to partake in some friendly showcase matches, a Bo3, and have the games casted by Boisterous? (see thread: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/6246945825?page=8#157)

I mentioned it would be a cool idea to have some forum members play each other and he cast the games and he seemed to like the idea.

So what I propose is this, if you'd like to play some friendly matches and have your games casted, as well as watch the games of other forum members, then state rather or not you're interested, as well as your league/race so we can get similarly skilled players together. We can then individually meet up with each other - or at a specific time if we can to have spectators, and play some games and send them to Boisterous.

MLG Antiga Shipyard
GSL Entombed Valley
GSL Abyssal City - WinparkPrime
GSL Whirlwind - WinparkPrime

EDIT: Join chat "forum posters" in game, there may be players who want to spectate your games if they're on.

Once you guys have paired up and played your Bo3, email replays to Boisterous: BoisterousSC2@gmail.com and/or post them on here.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'll post links to the Youtube casts of the series here that are finished (let's all try to not post any spoilers, if you've spectated, there are some good games to be seen :D), once Boisterous has them uploaded.

Also, if you have an idea on how you'd like to see the next Forum Showmatch, be it tournament style by leagues, forcing it to happen at a specific time so we can observe, or whatever. Post the ideas and if you'd be interested in doing something like this again in the future. Maybe it can be better organized and not so improptu next time. :D

EDIT: A big thanks to Boisterous (and Cadoink!) for casting our fellow forum members. Go check out the Anesthetic vs ViN games as well as Jazzman vs Dirtypeasant if you haven't done so already.
LETS DO THIS....well when I get home and kids are asleep but YEAH!

Bo3 sounds fun, I play random silver.

perhaps get a listing of who wants to do this and set up a ladder?
I want to observe. Not casting though.
Sign me up.

diamond protoss, but I also play Terran and some random

OP updated.

EDIT: Once we get a more complete list of who wants to play, we can pair everyone up.
Might be kind of fun. :)

I'm listed as bronze (since I only laddered back in season-1 for a couple games, when I was first learning), but I'd probably guess I'm around gold/plat skill-wise, at least with terran/protoss. Maybe silver/low gold with zerg (oddly enough, it's the race I started out playing, but am the worst at ultimately).

If you wanna put me in the bronze category I'm all for that, though I figured I'd mention that I might be a bit of a ringer at that league level. ;)

I've got a few trial accounts I play with, when I was idly finding out how people reacted to various names (male, female, gender-neutral). I didn't ladder after season-1, though, instead spending all my time playing custom matches. Less stressful than laddering. Plus a lot of times people were more open to kind of sitting around chatting when we both knew the game was over, and we'd discuss tactics and stuff.

What do you want to be listed as, Gold? What level do you think you play at with Terran/Toss?

Hm. Go ahead and list me as gold. I'll have better odds of winning then! :D

This man MUST play.
ProdofVoid, Want to play a Bo3 sometime?
I'd love to play. Diamond Random / (low) Masters Terran

Added. I think we have quite a few matchups if everyone wants to agree to play a Bo3. We could do this on our own schedule or try to coordinate to have some spectators, either way.

We could have few matchups like:

Silver:
Protostitute vs ProdofVoid

Diamond:
Dirtypeasant vs SwansGoMoo

Masters:
Anesthetic vs ViN

OK, not sure if I'll be up at that time...that's midnight on East Coast, but I'll play if I am.

Sounds fun. High Diamond Protoss, at your service. I can give you a good show vs Masters players as well, provided I get some practice in beforehand.
Add me too :D

I will try to get my terran up in time >:l Wish me luck :D
