I really love watching some Pro Starcraft but its so hard to keep up with it, they have so many matches every week so I have no idea who to look out for.

Still looking forward to the finals!

I discovered a nice sim racing channel recently, so that has kind of been my eSports fix, though I do watch different things from time to time on Twitch.

The live streams these guys do are just like watching a real televised race. Shame it is mainly oval racing though. Below is a live stream I watched last week. Starts about 1min in.

I'm finally catching up on my fighting game tournaments, just gotto watch the Street Fight 4 tournament from Defend the North, Mortal Kombat is the game I play so its usually what I try to watch live on catch a replay as soon as I can... all depends on the day/time it airs in the states.

MKX ESL proleague is also going on at the moment so I'll probably watch that this weekend when I get a chance.

The World of Tanks Pacific Rumble is on right now in Tokyo - best of the North American league vs the best of the Asian leagues! Should be a good afternoon!

I usually just check out the 'previous broadcasts' section of these twitch channels and watch whatever interests me:
http://www.twitch.tv/starcraft/profile
http://www.twitch.tv/esl_sc2/profile

Usually I just watch the IEM tournaments and sometimes the qualifiers because you see some more interesting strats and some really awesome wins. Usually a bit more interesting than the standard games and cheeses of the RO16 and above.
The tournaments however have exciting atmosphere about them so they're usually better to watch, and they're great for getting a gauge on who is 'hot right now' and finding the players with good personality to follow.

God I hope SOS doesn't win the $100,000 again this year, especially if he cheeses to get it. Just lame.
Edit: goddammit he's in the final now with Life. And the matchup doesn't look to be in Life's favour considering how they both ended up there.

I get excited about pretty much any foreigners playing, but my favorite players are: TLO, scarlett, snute and MC.
As you can see, I like watching zerg matches, and MC was just a great player to watch and was always funny whenever he got on the camera.

I'm a zerg guy as well, feels like Blizzard could have planned out the finals a bit better, I know they have a limited amount of time they had but having Starcraft and Heroes of the storm on at the same time meant people had to choose which grand final to watch, I went with Starcraft and planned to watch Heroes tonight, but then I saw spoilers for who one... annoying.
