Watch StarCraft II Pros Now

As you probably know, both StarCraft and its successor StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty are national pastimes in South Korea. GomTv broadcasts StarCraft tournaments live in elaborate arena sets to adoring audiences, and professional gamers get sponsored by corporations, worshipped by fans, and forced to train ten hours a day. If you too think StarCraft II is a spectator sport, want to improve your ladder rating by watching pros, or simply think that watching aliens build civilizations and then destroy each other in interstellar combat is awesome, then check out these StarCraft II links listed below. Included are Live Streams from the player’s point of view, professional games with commentary, and more. Go watch some StarCraft II!
