@ the video: At least it's not CoD 50 Super Hyper Mega Shooting Edition, or League of Losers. Both of those games are stupidly overhyped and overshadowed by Valve's titles in those genres (CS and DotA2, respectively; I don't really like either all that much, but at least DotA2 doesn't put heroes behind a paywall, and CS hasn't had yearly releases [Source to GO took like 10 years, and 1.6 to source took at least 5; yearly this ain't]).

Sucks that TBS games are effectively ignored by the esports community, though. Hell, if they wanted to, they could make their own fork of Battle for Wesnoth designed specifically for ultra competitive balance and speedy matches; there's no excuse for the TBS genre being ignored by the esports community given that there's a #%$@ing open source TBS they can tweak to fit their needs out there :/
