Starcraft 2 news » SC20 Anniversary Stream
On March 31, 1998, StarCraft was released to the world. Hardly anyone at the time realized the impact it would have on the world, but now, twenty years later, it's effects have rippled throughout the industry and the world.
Chances are, if you're reading this blog, StarCraft has had some kind of an impact on your life too! The same is true for countless people around the world, and so for two days, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of StarCraft, we invite you to join us for celebratory stream unlike any other!
Led by hosts Sean 'Day Plott, Geoff 'iNcontroL' Robinson, Nick 'Tasteless' Plott, and Dan 'Artosis' Stemkoski, the SC20 Anniversary Stream will take us on a storied journey encompassing tales of the past, laughs and competitions of the present, and hopes for the future. A massive variety of games will be played to celebrate the truly diverse ways that people have enjoyed StarCraft throughout the years, including team games, free-for-alls, 1v1, and of course... 2v2v2v2!
What would an anniversary celebration be were it not accompanied by the very people who helped shape StarCraft's history? We are thrilled to reveal that this celebratory broadcast will include a wealth of historic community figures such as Idra, HuK, Livibee, Ret, TLO, Nony, Lzgamer, PiG, White-Ra, and UpaTreeZelda!
The show begins on Friday, March 30th at 19:00 CEST on Twitch.tv/StarCraft with a "competitive" free-for-all to get things started. From there, we'll proceed with the celebration for the rest of the day until 03:00 CEST. The following day, the show will resume at the same time (19:00 CEST) and once again run throughout the day before coming to a close.
It's been a truly remarkable twenty years, and we're truly honored to be able to host this celebration for the game and it's community. We hope that you'll take some time to tune in, recollect, and join us in thanking the game and it's players for twenty years of wonderful stories and memories.
