No DreamHack last week. So instead of watching Starcraft II 12 hours a day, nerds across the world had the chance to actually be productive - by playing Starcraft II 12 hours a day (without increasing their MMR). Anyway, here are the Starcraft II highlights of last week!

Also notice how the Protoss player tries to block his ally's gas with two pylons - this is the type of silent rage and creativity the Dank Templars feast upon.
