The last Starcraft II premier / major tournament of the year came to a close last weekend, with some amazing action! Here's a quick recap of last week, including a special announcement from the Dank Templars ;)

MEME OF THE WEEK

Lord, I have failed Thee, yet again.

RAGE RANT OF THE WEEK

Maybe it's the Christmas spirit calming everyone down, but we haven't received any rage rants from our readers last week! We hope this means you are pwning on ladder and have solved all of your Starcraft II problems, including how to deal with Ravengers. We're not gonna lie, the Ravenger, not our favorite unit. We usually don't have a problem dealing with them, but we made this (not exactly accurate) realization when watching Dark (Z) play in the TSL 6 last week: Ravengers are basically siege tanks that are both unsieged and sieged at the same time (as they can bile and attack normally without sieging).

Ravengers should be called Schrodinger's tank.

Ok, we're gonna stop here, before we turn this lack of rage rant into a proper rage rant.
