Its has now been confirmed that SaSe and NightEnD have left Fnatic and their Starcraft 2 team.
Im a very big fan of Starcraft 2. Its a real time strategy game that I have been playing since it first came out. On YouTube HDStarcraft is one of the largest channels and commentators. However, I have noticed that he hasnt any content for the past month. HDStarcraft have you retired from Starcraft 2?
League of Legends is a very popular eSport game (I play some Starcraft 2 myself). Over the last year or so eSport has becoming amazingly popular throughout the world (with over 30 million unique visitors heading to Twitch.tv each month). The US immigration service cleared League of Legend as a professional sport just a month ago and now players have already started to apply for visas’. Danny “Shiphtur” Le has become the first pro gamer to receive a visa acknowledging him as an “internationally recognized” athlete.
Danny is from Canada and this visa allows him to come to the United States for training ahead of October’s world championships; $1 million will be up for grabs in the competition.
The decision to allow international eSport players to receive visas’ is a great decision by the US Government. It seems to be a sign that they are finally realising that there are some professions in which the US requires personnel from overseas to become the best.
p.s. I only wish they would realise this for the technology industry and startups in particular.

Stephano is probably the best foreigner Starcraft 2 player of all time. Stephano has won big tournaments like WCS Europe, IPL, and NASL.
He has made $216,000 in his career, winning over $100,000 more than any other foreigner, Mana in second place at $94,000.
Stephano has decided to retire to continue his studies. Stephano was known for not practicing much at all, so I wouldnt be surprised if he still plays some online tournaments and win a little money.
This is another big blow for Team EG, who just last week dropped Idra from their roster. It seems like their house in the USA is getting smaller by the day and their Korean team is getting larger! Will we eventually see a Team EG with only Korean players?
I wish Stephano all the best in his life after Starcraft 2!
Random Starcraft 2 thought: Goswser has been bad mouthing a lot of his opponent of late including Idra, which leads me to the thought process on whether he is trying to basically control his image and become the next Idra.
Now before there is a lot of hate in this thread.. I really think Idra is a talented player who sometimes (especially lately) does hit his potential.
