      Feel free to add me though I have not played multiplayer yet and I have not been placed yet. I will play my placement matches after my college studies (almost done).

      It is interesting to note that there are a massive amount of Zerg players qualifying. Might be too early to tell, but I am predicting another Zerg ROFLstomp for a three peat championship.

      interesting tidbit cazaril was talking about, i will ask him to post the exact numbers though:

      > On the Korean server, zerg has the highest win ratio
      > On the NA server, protoss has the highest win ratio
      > On the EU server, terran has the highest win ratio

      Maybe SEA has the highest random >.< lol, but i wonder why this trend is? And does this trend reflect the play of those in the GSL as well, however i just find it interesting that each race is finding its own victory in each region. Shows how balanced the game is that a simple region change simply tips the races advantages and disadvantages.
      The mind is both willing and able, the hands are too busy reaching for the beer bottle..... Add me on the SEA and NA servers: Flamga #377

      GMT +10.5!

      Damn, I was hoping Huk would make it in this time.

      Regarding Flamga's note, I wonder if Zerg may simply benefit more from higher APM than the other races. Which is not to say that they are more powerful so much as Korean pros rocking the ~300-400APM levels may simply be able to take advantage of the Zerg strengths a bit better? I'm uncertain, but it sometimes feels like the race has that sort of tendency when I'm playing.

      Someone on Team Liquid did a simulation where he assumed that a 200/200 food battle was going on while your were also macroing perfectly and he found the race that needed the most APM to do both micro and macro 100% spot on was actually Terran. Most likely because almost every one of there units has an ability, plus the need to kite/spread and all of their macro needs are on different buildings. The same guy, however, simulated how much is needed for the average player to macro as all races and the Zerg won in that case. So it seems in terms of pure APM Zerg have a high baseline but it levels off much quicker, Protoss are pretty even throughout, and Terran have a low baseline that jumps very sharply.

      Redux, do you know what non-koreans are playing in GSL season 3?

      I'm curious to see what kind of representation we're getting outside of the Korean stronghold of gaming.
