We don’t know much about the hardcore online gaming world so we invited Nathan into Hurdle Hut to school us on the phenomenon. He’s a Starcraft nerd and, according to him, it’s not just a bunch of coloured blobs running into each other (as seen above). I’m not completely convinced.
But he did point us towards Day 9 Daily and the world of videogame competition commentators. Once my mind reassembled itself from BEING BLOWN by the idea this exists, I tried to understand what’s going on in that game. Still, all I get out of it is coloured blobs bashing into each other.
