Last weekend, while in Korea, I attended a Starcraft 2 team match with a friend at Gom TV, where they broadcast the matches to TV/internet/etc.  It so happened that Blizzard's (the game's maker) President also decided to visit that day and sat directly in front of us.  Thus, we were all over TV and the internet, since we were right behind him in every shot of him, lol.  In a classy move, a couple of hours into the 4-hour match, he ordered pizza for the entire audience and swiped his credit card from his seat, haha.  He's a cool guy, willing to chat and take photos.  Here's a video clip (I'm in the gray sweatshirt):

How's the view in one of those spectator seats?  Can you see the action clearly?

Also, nice job on making it on Korean TV. :D

Never went to GOMTV but given the layout, I would say that heads will block the screen if you sit in the back, but I think they have few televisions for people sitting in the back (kinda how MBCGame was setup)

Moai. Start of the end. Explore the fate of Mars through Juliet, then realize, through Bermuda[TRIANGLE], that it is happening to us. With Human Dream, our society is corrupted, challenging God's conspiracy and supporting only the wealthy. Eventually, battle breaks out between the ones who conceal and ones who reveal. T'ik T'ak. Time goes by. Now, we are in a state of Coma, just recovering from recent events. We still wonder, however, if we will see each other again, through the Morning Eye.

Ah, sorry valius.....never saw your reply.  The seating is pretty small (maybe 6-8 rows of chairs deep?), so it's not bad to see, especially with the big screen display.

Should've tried MBCGame before it got shut down. Was very hard to see main stage if you sat in the back.

fortunately, I put my name on the waitlist since morning to get a 2nd row seat every single time. Got myself on camera few times too.

That was just Michael Morheime being himself (given that I spelled his name right). Then again, he didn't do that at BW Proleague the day before. Wonder why.... hrm....

(In the end, everything worked out between two parties, but yea. Pizza shows which game he wants to see succeed, or the fact that he had to buy much less for the ppl watching GSL)
