    League of Legends now #1 Game in Korea



    And in case you missed it, LoL took over one of the Korean television channels that was previously broadcasting Starcraft 2:

    That makes no sense. "We got to #1 in Korea doing what we've been doing since we released there, let's change everything around now." It's not like Starcraft was cute/anime-looking, and it's still in 4th place despite it's age and the fact that nothing has been added to it since Brood War came out. Your cynicism is weak, bro.
    Now, THIS thing? THIS thing is horrible. It's just awful. It was awful at 60 and it was awful at 58. It's awful at 45. If this dropped off a mob in Wailing Caverns when you were level 17 and being run through by a higher level character, you would equip it ONLY because you don't have trinkets at that level, and it would STILL SUCK.

    I believe i read somewhere that there are two. One, if i recall correctly, had commentators picking apart random games to teach people, and the other one was running a tournament.

    In Korea yes GOM have the rights to the GSL, rumour that Blizzards new tournament they are taking to Korea later this year might be on a rival network though.

    I believe there are 2 or so companies broadcasting Brood War.

    Yes it will be very interesting to see if the retiring BW pros will switch to LoL or SC2

    This is activity for internet cafes. I have no idea if certain games get played more at internet cafes than they do at homes, or if its an accurate portrayal of overall demographics, but it should still be considered.

    Also.....I'm fairly certain there were no television channels broadcasting Starcraft 2 so wtf?

    SC2 isn't that popular in Korea, a number of pro's (including some of the best like Flash) haven't even swapped over yet and still play BW. It never took off in Korea and honestly, a number of the SC2 Korean pro's are kind of washed up old BW pro's.
