+ - T-Mobile is scaring Wall Street for all the right reasons-> 1

Submitted by Reverand Dave
Reverand Dave (1959652) writes "Here’s how you know that T-Mobile is onto something: It’s making Wall Street very nervous for all the right reasons. Reuters recently talked with several financial analysts who all expressed fear that T-Mobile was sparking a pricing war in the wireless industry and that carriers were starting to actually compete with one another for our business. Or as Reuters puts it, “the intensifying competition is a new challenge to a U.S. industry long used to imposing its will on consumers, and analysts fear it could result in the loss of billions of dollars of revenue.”

It appears that Wall Street is having issue with the free market moves made by T-Mobile."

From your post, you didn't watch the last 3 GSL, the last 2 Blizzcups finals also. All of them had multiple "Waiting for server" and "Waiting for player" messages during their live broadcasts due to structure. Also, more recently this weekend, a whole tournament set to happen in Chicago had to be rescheduled, because despite filling the required for sc2 tournaments and arranging with blizzard employees, after half the players started logging in, the IP was blacklisted and all of the players that traveled from far away could not play and all of that was blizzard's fault. Here you can read about the tournament

Gameplay and multiplayer features are on my top list, ever. Followed by re-playability and the existence of modding tools and patches to enhance the experience with the game. The plot and the elements that makes you re-play the game countless times differ from genre to genre, but all of them share at least one thing in common: good gameplay. Baldurs Gate, Diablo, Age of Empires, Starcraft, Warcraft, Half life, Counter-Strike, Quake, Unreal Tournament, Chronno Trigger, Final Fantasy, and the list goes on...
