BoxeR, the Emperor returns!

For those who don't know BoxeR. He is Lim Yo-Hwan (born 4 September 1980) and is one of the most successful StarCraft (Brood War) players. Dubbed The Emperor by his fans, he is the most popular Starcraft player with a fan club of more than 1,000,000 members! Furthermore, he is one of the highest-paid professional gamers, with annual earnings that exceed $300,000 US Dollars! In 2006, he was included in MTV's The 10 Most Influential Video Gamers Of All Time. That's insane!!

Rumour has it that many top Korean Brood War players having been slowly migrating to StarCraft II, so that's really good news for the StarCraft II community!

Without further ado, here are some vids with commentaries by none other than HuskyStarcraft! These are battles between BoxeR (Red Terran) vs Team Liquid's Jinro (Blue Terran) on Metalopolis!

Game 1

  10. I watch all of these matches already on Husky's youtube channel. They were some great matches, although I think Jinro had one of the games in the bag, but was too timid about attacking and that cost him.
