For Ayesee being a starcraft 2 caster, he is doing a really good job casting DotA2 ;) my favorite caster after Tobi.
looking forward to all the games, especially coL vs Darer... I hope coL will win, and Darer will be a lesson given! :D

its gonna be a whopper!!
lots of interesting matches in the first round definetely...
aL vs Water...looking to see how Water performs.
Dignitas vs mTw...looking to see how Synd and the "new gang" are doing after a while away from official matches to see if they regained their composure
coL vs Darer...obviously being the most anticipated game, to see if artstyle + 4 will be able to stand up to one of the top teams of the moment and stake a claim to all the spotlight they've been hogging
MOUZ vs CLG ... not a flashy game but still hoping for a very good game MOUZ never lets down the spectators.
NEXT.kz vs EG... personally I always feel like NEXT.kz can surprise even the topdogs every now and then...lets see how EG is doing....they got quantic matchup first...and then this...lets see how they react after a tough beating from Na'Vi

Sadly the Darer team is not in it's best shape, judging by it's last matches (loosing to some no-name teams), so I don't think that they even have a chance against CoL in this particular tournament...

since EG got danish flag with majority of their player from sweden, i think you should do same with mTw (3 from SE)

on topic:

gratz to all who made it! let the best win!
