"Some people are cofusing about the word "Anaheim"
Actually the subject is " GSL Oct. Finals will go Blizzcon Anaheim "
And GSL Finals is one of events of Blizzcon , so this is additional events!
I am Mr.Chae from GOMTV.
First I am very happy to announcement!
It’s been 3 weeks since GSL and GSTL started with new format.
When planning the new format, I had to go through lot of consideration and I had lot of worries whether it would work out fine, but now I am happy to see everyone enjoying new GSL.
While watching other tournaments recently, I’ve noticed many people discussing how it would be if GSL held its final outside Korea.
Lot of people have made requests about it through Twitter and the time I went to MLG Columbus, I gained faith that holding GSL final outside Korea would be meaningful.
I hope GSL to become a festival for all e-sports fans around the globe.
I don’t want an e-sports title like SC BW, which was isolated to Korea.
Korean gamers are competing with Korean gamers and despite frequent foreign tournaments, they are willing to fly over to compete. They are also very impressed and enjoying the support from foreign fans.
For these reasons I have decided to hold GSL final outside Korea and have prepared for it.
The decision was not easy to make. It is first time and therefore a great challenge for us to send staff and produce and transmit from oversea. But it is a worthy challenge for GSL and something that must be done at some point.
As many of you know Blizzcon is held every year at Ahaheim and it is a biggest event for all those who love Blizzard’s games.
Yes, final for GSL Oct. will be held in Anaheim. You will be able to enjoy both Blizzcon events and GSL final.
I give thanks to our partner, Blizzard Entertainment for providing us help to hold GSL’s first oversea final. Blizzard has given great help towards GSL.. Blizzard is GOM’s best partner and will continue to bring great news to you.
I believe many of you are ready to enjoy the event.
I’m taking all of feedbacks concerning GSL, so feel free to contact me if you have any ideas. I will do my best to fulfill them.
Also, I saw a post with discussion concerning my interview with TIG(ThisIsGame, Korean gaming media)in which I talked about “possibility of oversea GSL final”. I’ve read every single reply in the thread and TArujo made correct prediction about final at Blizzcon. As a reward, I’ll be giving him GSL Aug. Season ticket. If you let me know of your GOMTV.NET account via PM, I’ll present it to you.
