    The whole thing can be found here (http://www.twitch.tv/pvplive/b/511099051), as far as I know they are breaking it up into smaller VODs atm but there isnt an ETA.


    I really enjoyed day 1 and apart from the disconnects and audio issues I think it went really well. Really looking forward to day 2. The support Blizzard is giving this tournament plus the tweets between MLG and Blizzard has given me really high hopes for the future of arena.

    I'm going to watch some of day two. I might have to end up watching it taped because I have to actually sleep this afternoon.

    Oh and one thing I noticed hahaha. There's a certain mindless tunnel bot class that isn't even represented in this tournament. Can anyone guess which class it is?

    That Wizard cleave vs Wizard cleave was the most boring shit ever.

    I know people are going to hate on him but watching swifty lose his shit is pretty funny, glad they brought him on board for that match.

    And damn that venruki venruki'd totally caught me off guard.

    Edit: Another boring wizcleave game, went and cooked dinner, eat it, come back still same match lol.

    are there any WW monks in this tournament?

    - - - Updated - - -

    both these teams have crazy damage, i'd hate being a healer in high rated pvp, seems way too much work compared to being dps!

    Finished early - obviously they can't predict how long each series is gonna last so I think the 2am was just a 'worst case' scenario if every game went into dampening.

    So what are people's thoughts for tomorrow? Personally guessing a skill-capped vs three amigos rematch in the finals. Can't see Skill-Capped losing to Thugonomic's team, so that puts them in the finals, and then in the lower bracket Three Amigos will probably beat Juice, but their match with BHE could be close, suspect they'll still pull it out though.

    Have to say I like the odds for Skill-Capped, they just seem so dominant right now.

    B.H.E. is my favorite so far, they just seem the funnest to watch. Though I wish pretty standard could have played. I can not say I am enjoying the format that well, Bleached Bones was my favorite, as you could see comps you generally would never see and it could stop the spell cleaves.

    Blacksmith Hammers Equip has the potential to beat Skillcapped. Destro LSD definitely has the potential to beat Affliction LSD and Novoz's playstyle is far more aggressive than Talbadars. They didnt face each other at Blizzcon so it'll be the first time that they will fight in a tournament setting and I see the games going either way.

    Three Amigos vs Juice.. I hope that Juice can win because I love seeing Godcomp play. Godcomp vs MLS is a so-so matchup, I think Godcomp has the advantage but Cdew/Ven/Snutz have more tournament/pressure experience. We'll see.

    All 4 teams have the potential to win this, pretty exciting.
