Watching as we speak.
I believe HuK will win, but I guess we'll see. There've been some great games so far and the casters (Day9 and JP) are a lot better than those in the European invitational (MrBitter and Rotterdam) were.

By the way, isn't it about time Hive gets a Sc2 e-sport forum?

If you have to make such forum and include every esports event, then you would have a lot of work to do, as that would be every week. Furthermore, if you will do that kind of news, it will require a lot of time to follow players' transfers between teams or basically anything that happens. Good luck with that, THW is a mapmaking forum, last I checked. If you decide to include such news frm time to time and only some big events, then a whole forum may not be needed.

Sheth reminds me of the kid from Two and a half man.
