MLG Spring Arena 2 airing NOW!

Did you happen to catch Spring Arena the first? DongRaeGu took home first place and a check for $5,000 for his excellent Zerg play. Spring Arena 2 kicks off today and, just as before, you'll need to own either a Spring Season Pass for $30 or a Spring Arena 2 PPV pass for $20 in order to watch.

The interesting thing about this tournament is that the top 15 seeds get to choose their opponent from the remaining players. In other words, the #1 seed DongRaeGu got to pick his victim opponent first, followed by the #2 seed picking and so on. The full, complete bracket can be viewed here.

I'll also take this time to introduce Idra to those of you who don't follow the scene, since he's competing in this tournament. I can't say I know a ton about each big name on the SCII scene, but I sure do know about Idra. He is very headstrong and rarely says "gg" (good game) after losing, which has earned him a certain negative reputation. It is said that his keyboard looks just like this. He's still a great Zerg player, but he gets plenty of negative feedback because of his personality. And now you know!
