The Trial of the Xel'Naga begins at 6PM PT! This is a 2v2 StarCraft II tournament that pairs pro players with regular schmoes from the audience against each other with weird and wacky special events that can take place like the one in the embedded video above. Tonight's map is the fire map and features White-Ra, Illusion, NonY, and Machine playing to advance. NonY and White-Ra are quite possibly my two favorite players ever, so needless to say I am pumped!
The tournament will continue through Saturday, when the winners of today and tomorrow will compete in the final matches. You can tune in to the stream here.
