    i don't disagree i was merely saying the exercise would be all the more fruitful via FA.

    I think Sorian would back me there.

    FA isn't a multimillion dollar esport.

    Not that SC2 will be one for much longer either.

    More players = More data to research on.
    Also more available pro players. As in real pros that spend every waking minutes practicing their play to make money in tournaments. Useful for comparision to the very best human capability.
    Also support from Blizzard in developing the whole API and stuff.
    So many reasons. Easy decision really.

    we have those.
    even if they don't fight for the same sums you can bet your *** they're spending every waking hour practicing.

    but i digress
