Earlier this year Blizzard celebrated the 20 year anniversary of StarCraft. An iconic game that we've all come to know and love. However, the original game had its issues and it wasn't until the release of the expansion StarCraft: Brood War, on the 30th of November 1998, that the game truely became competitive.
Since then we've been blessed to be able to follow the careers of players such as BoxeR, NaDa, iloveoov, sAviOr, Flash, Bisu, and Jaedong (and Yellow, Fantasy, Stork, etc. etc.). These players kept re-inventing the game until their retirements. They supplied us with countless hours of entertainment and have solidified their place in StarCraft, and esports, history. Not to mention our hearts.
The game is also responsible for building TLnet, a community like no other. All around the world people woke up at ungodly hours to hang out in IRC and discuss the games of the day. The hype levels were off the charts on QuakeNet, and the LR threads, when the MSL, OSL, or ProLeague finals were played. While Brood War never reached the popularity of SC2, the community was one of a kind and just as rabid.
So with the game now turning 20, which is insane, we want to hear from you, the community. What was your favorite moment? Your favorite game? Help us remember what made, and still makes, Brood War such a great game.
Now let's celebrate like FBH!
