3 April 2013 marks an important date for Starcraft II, and perhaps only the release of Wings of Liberty is greater than this. A new integrated individual league format had been announced today in South Korea.
This is not exactly ‘new news’. Two weeks ago, the partnership of Major League Gaming (MLG), Electronic Sports League (ESL) and Dreamhack (DH) was announced. It was well received by the community overall. There is a consensus that this will help eSports development and the Starcraft 2 community will benefit from it. However, there are always tradeoffs when something as big as this happens.
