Now that I’ve got a brief break in my ridiculous schedule I’ve been following season 3 of GomTV.net’s Starcraft tournament. I watched a replay of Korean player FireBatHero and the announcers Tasteless and Super Daniel Man mentioned that after FireBatHero’s victories he will often taunt his opponents in elaborate celebrations. This is very uncharacteristic of the usually very respectful Korean players. Of course after hearing this I went straight to YouTube to look up FireBatHero and I was not disappointed.
FireBatHero runs a full circle around Savior after he beats him.

In a way this celebration reminds me of MMA and K1 fighter Genki Sudo’s opening ceremonies with just how premeditated it was. While unsportsmanlike these celebrations really bring some drama to the game of StarCraft and I think that adds to the whole experience.
