It looks like MLG changed their minds about releasing the StarCraft 2 replays from the MLG tournament in Anaheim last week. Sundance DiGiovanni writes about it as his Twitter
There will be no replays to the public from the MLG Pro Circuit in Anaheim last weekend. They write:
We realize that this has been a popular feature, but unfortunately replay packs contain data which can be used to DDOS the player- and the event.
But they also say that they will send out the replays that has not been broadcasted to the public to some of the casters around the community to make all games available to everyone out there.
This is amazing news, the GSL final in October will be held at Blizzcon in Anaheim, USA. This will give us TWO StarCraft 2 tournaments at Blizzon.
Mr.Chae from GOMTV writes that he got many requests from the foreign scene about hosting the GSL final outside South Korea so people around the world would have an easier way to watch the finals live. So Mr.Chae decided to look around on where GOMTV could host the finals and they ended up with Blizzcon in Anaheim USA.
I don’t want StarCraft 2 to become an e-sports title like SC BW which was excluded to people inside of Korea.
But this doesn’t mean that Blizzard are shutting down their own tournament at all. They will still host their tournament along with the GSL final. That means that we get twice as much StarCraft 2 action in Anaheim!
Yes, the final for GSL Oct. will be held in Anaheim. You will be able to enjoy both Blizzcon events and GSL final.
