00:00 - 00:05TL just announced the biggest foreign bw tournament in years
00:05 - 00:07and all of us got super excited
00:07 - 00:10Then the admins said something about Scan playing
00:11 - 00:16one of the top semi-pro koreans of the past several years
00:17 - 00:21we all thought this must be some kind of a joke
00:21 - 00:24Scan..
00:29 - 00:31in a foreign tournament
00:31 - 00:34One time i tried so hard to proxy gate him i forgot to make probes
00:38 - 00:40Scan..
00:41 - 00:47Sziky got so mad he stopped using google translator for his posts
00:47 - 00:50and now there is a heated debate in the forum whether Scan should play or not
00:50 - 00:56And on top of that the TL staff plans on hosting small 100$ tournaments every week
00:58 - 00:59with Scan playing
00:59 - 01:01in all of them
01:04 - 01:06and they will go on for 6 months
01:06 - 01:08until the TLS championship
01:13 - 01:14poor Scan
01:14 - 01:16it will take a keyboard and a mouse
01:16 - 01:20to wipe the floor with all the inactive foreigners
01:21 - 01:27And in the rules it's stated that korean and chinese players are not allowed
01:35 - 01:36but Scan is an "edge case"
01:36 - 01:39because he speaks better english than Sziky
01:41 - 01:44But let us get serious for a moment
01:44 - 01:47the TL staff is ready to revise the decision
01:47 - 01:49if any lag issues occur with him
01:50 - 01:53That might be the only reason to ban him
01:54 - 01:56if he lags on extra high lat
01:56 - 01:58to think of all the foreign zergs
01:58 - 02:02that need to play laggy zvt on low with him
02:05 - 02:07Mutalisk micro..
02:10 - 02:11micro..
02:11 - 02:13mutalisks..
02:15 - 02:17vs a guy who practices with progamers
02:17 - 02:20and against his best match-up
02:21 - 02:28And all of the top foreign players that might have a chance vs him play Zerg as their main
02:29 - 02:30And the admins know this?
02:30 - 02:32Yeah they even update the foreign rankings
02:36 - 02:39but they consider Scan a foreigner too
02:40 - 02:42because he has a TL account
02:50 - 02:55And they said that he contributed to the foreign bw community
02:56 - 02:58How is that so?
02:58 - 03:04Well he opened one thread in the forums and reviewed a translation from korean
03:04 - 03:09and also he translates some posts from korean
03:09 - 03:11That makes him a foreigner..
03:16 - 03:20but he is still south korean
03:23 - 03:26TechnicS and Eon got so mad
03:31 - 03:36that they started agreeing with each other on every post
