Blizzard takes control of its eSports fate by simplifying and pushing StarCraft 2 competition
It can get complicated trying to follow eSports, and Blizzard is working to make StarCraft 2 competition easier to understand. I'm not going to repeat the new structure of these competitions, as Rod "Slasher" Breslau does a great job of breaking it down in this story, but the good news is that the whole thing is relatively easy to understand.
Pay attention to the number of entities, players, and regions that are involved with this sort of push. The logistics have to be intimidating, even for a company as large as Blizzard, but the rewards in terms of game sales, viewership, and mindshare among gamers is more than worth the effort. This is going to be fun to watch.
