Four players vie for a spot at the Battlegrounds championship in New York City. The episode also covers the all-important actions per minute (APM), which is what separates top players from the casuals.Finally, Episode 14 introduces Battlegrounds, which took place recently in New York City. The lore of the Starcraft universe also gets some screen time.For more on This is eSports, check out our past coverage:
Our TakeI've learned a lot watching This is eSports, and I hope that Red Bull does a follow up series that is a bit more technical. I'd love to see a few matches broken down and explained. This would help me enjoy Starcraft II more, and it might also get me invested in watching events.
