You should have heard of the news of AlphaGo defeating Lee Sedol by now, and Starcraft may be the next game that DeepMind (AlphaGo) want to challenge. This is a great news for Starcraft.
As we know, the Starcraft community on forum has a reputation of being negative toward the game, even though that seems to have improved recently (hope I don’t jinx it). I realise this phenomenon is actually consistent with the recent academic findings.
The 2013/14 is coming to an end after Proleague has concluded and with WCS Season 3 moving on to the knockout stage. There are signs of expansion in the competitive scene for the next season. However, there are still a few important questions remain.
