Some of you may have heard of the TLCMAT which is composed of many of the great minds and contributors to the site. The intentions of the contest are to determine who is the most awesome and to provoke trash talk among its contestants. As you will see, I aim no lower than the top, expect no less than utter greatness, and hope to embed a legend pertaining to myself into the website in the coming years.
Currently, one of the greatest matches, TheBB vs The_Templar, is happening right now.
Let me introduce, without any bias at all, the two opposing players.
The_Templar is one of the coolest and most helpful and awesome people in the entire world, and a TaeJa fan, meaning the citizens of TL have to understand his thought processes in order to understand his cool demeanor and exceptional talents which he is willing to share. He not only refers to himself in third person when praising himself, but also contributes in every field he can in order to expand the knowledge of the human race and save ESPORTS itself. Recently, while saving oceanic life by clearing up litter and mediating under a tree at one the sandy beaches of the United States of America's east coast, The_Templar understood the difficulty and importance of live reporting and took it upon himself to describe his passion for StarCraft while giving new hope to the people who could not find the time to watch amazing players like Liquid`TaeJa in WCS America and WCS Europe. His live reporting is always supremely amazing and occasionally borders on godlike. Recently, The_Templar said "Hi" in the blizzcon thread and got several responses from very awesome fans that were excited to see that he would be live reporting. People he doesn't know greet him cheerfully in the hallways of both real life and TL. And he is thankful for your kindness.
Now, pay attention to TheBB. Interestingly, his knowledge of KESPA players is rock solid because of Aligulac and he re-gamed a lot (this is equivalent to re-attempting his aligulac project back in 2012). Excellent knowledge of brood war combined with a willingness to re-game means he would be more accurately described TheBB A re, which is an anagram of bet rehab, or gambling rehabilitation. TheBB dabbled in liquibets, which is basically gambling because it has "bet" in its name. He encourages people to use his system to bet and then, upon becoming addicted, join rehab, which is very expensive. TheBB uses the profits from running the rehab centers for evil purposes such as funding his website which he legally advertises on TL so more people use it- a vicious circle. There is more to it, I'm sure, but ESPORTS waits for no man, so I must continue onwards.
There is a good side of aligulac. TheBB's team as a whole- Grovbolle, Conti, KristofferAG, Otolia, etc. is by itself responsible for the good side of aligulac, not just him. Am I, a mere representative of Team TaeJa, facing against an entire team? Absolutely not.
If you don't like reading paragraphs of text here are cool aesthetics to satisfy your need for Templar awesomeness.
I balance the randomness of SC2 and save ESPORTS. On my chin. David kim who?
