Blizzard announced yesterday that patch 1.4 is coming for StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. It includes many changes for the editor, as well as (much needed, if I may add) balance changes.Full changelog here.
Another Major League Gaming (MLG) event, MLG Rayleigh, is on from 26th to the 28th of August (this weekend!)! With 14k$ of prizes, including 5k$ for the first place, MLG promises another weekend of ultimate SC2 action!The commentator team includes frequent faces such as Husky and Day9, but Artosis and Tasteless are coming back as well!Below is a quote from the official MLG website.
The StarCraft 2 pro roster is locked, and we have our Top 20 and Pool lineup for Raleigh. And…well, to put it mildly, this is going to be interesting. MVPDongRaeGu and FnaticRain have decided to return on their own, separate from the four players invited through the League Exchange, and so have been seeded according to their Rank Points. We have STBomber, ZeNex CoCa, STTester, and none other than oGsNada confirmed as our GSL pro players. And Naniwa and Huk are in the same Pool.
The Top 20
Let's take a look at what we have here. The only PvP is in Pool A, where the aforementioned battle between Naniwa and Huk will take place, with InControl as a possible spoiler. Pool B is a ZvT fest, and there is absolutely no ZvP for Idra to worry about. The race spread in Pool C is decently balanced, and LiquidTLO will have another chance to beat DRG, after losing to him in the first match of Anaheim. In Pool D, the received wisdom might be that LiquidRet will slaughter everyone (except Nada), given how he's been playing lately, but all the other players in Pool D are capable of taking him down, if they keep their heads. However it plays out, Pool Play in Raleigh is going to offer some very interesting games indeed.
I believe we will again be able to watch the live stream from TeamLiquid's website. http://www.teamliquid.net/video/streams/MLG_Raleigh_Red. There's a blue stream as well, I will be posting the link soon.
EDIT: You may also watch the streams in Major League Gaming's official website: Red Stream, and the Blue Stream.
