If you are a Brood war gamer then you probably have seen the big finals between SlayerS_BoxeR and [NC]Yellow! Now you will have the chance to see them fight again but this time in StarCraft 2.
Yellow announced his retirement just a few weeks ago but we will see hem sooner then we think! The 5th of August is the date for the new fight! He will face SlayerS_BoxeR in a show match. Jungwon Chae wrote about this on his Twitter today. mprs over at Teamliquid wrote that the game will probably played at 18:00 KST and also that it might be streamed at GOMTV since Jungwon Chae announced about this.
This will in fact be live on GOMTV.net!
GOMTV.net just announced that they launched their new mobile site. This will make it possible to watch GSL live in your iPad and iPhone!
GOMTV.net just released their new mobile site; m.gomtv.net this will make it possible to watch the live broadcasts in your iPad or iPhone if you are not able to use your computer! This is some great news and I think this will be a great success for GOMTV. It’s an easy way to reach out to even more people around the world. You will of course need the premium season ticket account but I don’t think that it’s to much to ask. Go and support the community!

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.
