TeamLiquid Interview With StarCraft 2 MLG National Champion Liquid`Jinro, Liquid`TLO, and Liquid`HuK

I've been covering the Starcraft 2 tournament at MLG Dallas this past weekend, as seen in my Saturday report and Sunday wrap-up, and recently I got the opportunity to interview many of the StarCraft 2 fan favorites from TeamLiquid. With TeamLiquid landing 4 players in the top 8, I was lucky enough to sit down for a few minutes with StarCraft 2 National Champion Liquid`Jinro, as well as his teammates HuK, and TLO.

MLG Dallas 2010 National Championships Wrap Up - Sunday Funday Report<

Just arrived home after a whirlwind of a weekend at the Major League Gaming tournament in Dallas. The best word I can use to describe the event is epic. Over the past three weeks, between Blizzcon and MLG, I've spent a lot of time with my fellow gamers. I can't even begin to express how awesome everyone has been. Especially at MLG and SixJax Gaming. With MLG, where the gamers are competing for huge prizes, they are all so humble and appreciative of fans, and congratulate one another whether they win or lose. "GG" is often seen as an insult in gaming nowadays, something along the lines of "pwned n00b, gg." But at MLG, it was always said with respect, sometimes even with a "well played" afterwards too. I love that about professional gaming. So, with that said, here's a recap of all the fun from Championship Sunday at MLG Dallas 2010.

Four of the greatest Super Street Fighter IV players in the world – Justin Wong, Marn, Mike Ross, and GamerBee – will be attending this weekend’s Southern California Regionals tournament in Los Angeles. Luckily for us, these absurdly skilled players were able to step away from their well worn fightsticks for a few minutes to head over to the G4 offices and talk to us about how they broke into the competitive gaming scene, the methodology behind their character preferences, and what they’re expecting from this weekend’s big tournament.
