Blizzard eSports AMA - July 3 @ 11 am PDT

General Discussion
We will be hosting a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) with members of the Blizzard eSports team on r/StarCraft Wednesday, July 3 at 11:00 am PDT. Senior eSports Manager Kim Phan and Community Manager Kevin "Cloaken" Johnson will be on hand to answer questions for approximately two hours. Because the AMA will be hosted on r/StarCraft , we wanted to give you advance notice to ensure you’re able to plan accordingly and prepare your questions.

We look forward to answering any of the lingering questions anyone may have about the World Championship series. If you can't make it, leave your question here and someone may ask it on your behalf!
I hope someone asks about mech as I can't be there :(
Oh good, so Bunny did get a job at Blizzard after all =) Shoutouts to her and Cloaken.
Out of curiosity, why are these things always on Reddit?
Here's my question: what's blizzard's attitude towards basetrades? Specifically, when a zerg gets mutas vs protoss, the tactically correct play is usually to do a basetrade rather than fight the protoss army. Is this something you guys view as a problem?
InB4 Blizz says something about Balance that makes these forums a cesspool of QQ for another month. I really wish blizz would stop talking balance with the community.

+1. I hope this question gets asked, as well as Blizzards stance on making every unit viable... I hate "casual" units, balance ALL the units. More viable strategies = better.

Also - is Blizzard still thinking no new units for LotV, or can we agree this is a bad idea?

EDIT: Automated Tournaments: will we see this before LotV...or even see it at all?
I'm noticing that most of you are mentioning design/balance questions. Please be aware that Dustin and Dayvie won't be present for this AMA as it dedicated entirely to eSports related questions. Perhaps sometime in the future we'll have another AMA or an "Ask the Devs" style blog, but this one features Kim Phan who is focused entirely on eSports and WCS.
The Reddit AMA is now live.
Not sure if it's still going on but I am curious:

Last WCS I actually watched (a few months ago) what I saw was add time slots in the NA/SA region being taken by adds that were spoken in Korean, a non-native language to this region.

Is the average E-Sports event outside of Korea able to turn a profit?
Why is it that no one saw this?
Why cant we downvote Blizzard posts?

Any reason this link isn't edited in to the first post? And is there a copy of all the Blizzard responses somewhere else so that I don't have to use the god awful Reddit interface?
