    Yup, South Koreans are pretty much obsessed with Starcraft. I wonder how much copies SCII will sell on day one...

    LOL, that's actually pretty awesome though. Love those suits they have, haha. Jeez, what is this world coming too. Mental agility, more than physical condition eh? Wonder when more countries will start doing this. :lol:

    They have plenty of professional gamers here in the United States, and hundreds of competitions are held yearly for every game, specifically Starcraft, Warcraft and World of Warcraft. Speaking of which, the best 3v3 team in the world is currently undefeated against every major competitor from a foreign nation, including Korea, Europe, and Taiwan and also from within the US when it comes to professional games, and not just everyday games on the battlegroup (where they claim competition is more fierce rather than in any tournament they have been in).

    But yeah... professional gaming would be a dream for me unfortunately. I have competed with Team Pandemic, as my 2v2 and 3v3 are on the same battlegroup (the Orc Warlock in my signature for any WoW players), and I can say they are definitely on a completely different level of gaming than any gamer I have ever personally met (and yes, we have beaten them a couple of times out of the multiple tens of times we have faced them). They could pick up a level 70 character of any class and play it better than nearly anyone without having any personal hands on experience with the class.
