FireBatHero’s StarCraft Victory Ceremonies

Thursday, April 30th, 2009


Posted by Tony Huynh.
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.

Top 5 Greatest Moments in Competitive Gaming (eSports)

Monday, January 5th, 2009



Here are the top 5 greatest moments in tournament gaming. To qualify these moments had to occur in a tournament witnessed by others and of course it had to be recorded. Enjoy!

5. Condition Zero: 3D Dave “Moto” Geffon versus 4 SK-Gaming at WCG 2004 Finals



4. Quake III: Fatal1ty is down 0-8 in this match against AIM at QuakeCon 2002
What will he do? Pay attention to the ridiculous rail shot at 1:36.



3. Halo: Combat Evolved: Saiyan takes down the The Dream Team (TDT) at AGP 4
Pay attention to the top-left quarter of the 4-way split screen. “Oh my god! Someone stop him!”



2. StarCraft: SlayerS_’BoxeR’ SCV Rush
The most famous rush in StarCraft history occurred when Boxer brings his Space Construction Vehicles in an all or nothing early rush against [NC] Yellow in this Korean tournament finals match.



1. Street Fighter III 3rd Strike: Daigo Umehara versus Justin Wong at EVO 2004
This is a famous video, but damn is it still amazing and the crowd reaction is the best.
