Did anyone watch this tourney over the weekend?
Overall, I felt the tourney was well-organized, and there were a lot of good tourney plays out there. However, the IPL casters - those employed by IGN - were absolutely horrible. Obnoxious commentary, didn't know their stuff, and I had to put my headphones down a few times when they said things that were completely wrong.
Otherwise, I did watch the CLG vs TSM match Round 1 Bo3 (Championship Round) and Round 2 Bo3 (Extended Championship Round). In the first round Bo3 CLG won 2-0 to keep themselves alive and send the championship into the Extended Championship Round. However, the second round Bo3 was where CLG got outplayed in so many ways. IIRC, saintvicious - as the jungler - had 3-4 instances where he was caught while attempting to steal enemy buffs at the beginning of the game and fed TSM first blood.
Anyways, congrats to TSM on their 2-0 victory in the Extended Championship Round and winning IPL4! And in commemoration of their victory, SoloMid is going to sell Dyrus pillows in their online store (lol). (For the record, Dyrus was carrying a large Barbie pillow throughout IPL4. If you don't know why he was carrying a large Barbie pillow in the first place, the Barbie pillow is a reference to him half-awkwardly singing "Barbie Girl" after filming a SotL episode some time ago)
The award ceremony was a bit awkward; even Cristina Vee (Riven voice actor) was feeling awkward when she was presenting the awards. You got 15 nerdy guys up there not knowing how to present themselves properly on stage, lol.
