Watch the Public Get Starcraft II Casters Smashed

What's more humanizing than watching famous people make a fool of themselves?

News by Cassandra Khaw, .

As the week winds down to a close, how better to start the weekend than by watching a Starcraft II casters play the game in a state of extreme intoxication?

Nick "Axslav" Ranish and Alex "Axeltoss" Rodriguez both serve under Major League Gaming's rather expansive banner. While Axeltoss is probably best known for his copious fondness for mustard, Axslav is also known for his prowess in the competitive scene. However, all that is completely irrelevant. What is important to know is that the dynamic duo is perfectly okay with the idea of imbibing massive amounts of alcohol on channel. Why? I don't know. Because, I suppose. Because.

Today, Axslav is taking challengers from the general public. Should a community member succeed in trouncing him, he takes a shot of whiskey. At first blush, many would think this an impossible challenge but Axslav has, at the time of writing, quaffed nine servings already. Many more, it seems, are due to follow. (Interestingly, the original idea involved only Axslav swigging whiskey but it looks like both parties have decided to share the libations. I can only assume it is because Axeltoss isn't willing to let a friend suffer alone. Ahem.)

It's an absolutely titillating watch. Both Axslav and Axeltoss are making no attempts to conceal the fact that it's all getting to their head; water and alcohol is getting confused a fair bit. And the best part about all this? There's something called the Handicap coming up after this session.

Curious about how it'd all end? The Twitch.TV stream is waiting for you right here.Alternatively, you can always join Channel MLG to help encourage the madness.

P.S: If you arrive on this post late, don't fret. The Punishment and the Handicap will apparently take place again next week.

    Now see Cassandra, this is a useful article! It's not useless editorial that added nothing to the conversation on the issue. New information and a subject that is worth discussing is the topic, unlike gender-equality in Call of Duty. And this is also interesting! Wins all around. Keep it up.

    EDIT: I know this post is going to come off as sexist drivel, but if you do that you're limiting yourself from learning anything. Pretending Call of Duty is an important game for gender equality is such a dumb topic it's not worth discussing. Call of Duty is so far behind other games in that space that the editorial on it is useless. The editorial was either woefully out of touch and out of date by seven years or the fact that it is Call of Duty means you might have known the editorial was pointless but posted anyway because you were fishing for hits to your articles, which is shameless to say the least.Edited 2 times.

    1: Hiding under the pretense that this was a comment about the article in hand.

    2: Admitting that what you were about to say would come off as "sexist drivel" and then resort to defend it with cheap (and largely irrational) motives; That there's nothing to learn here if people were to disagree with you. you believe in that yourself?

    3: Trying to call off the gender discussion in CoD by calling it a dumb topic not worth discussing. Since when did ignoring quandaries teach us anything?

    4: And while we're calling it a dumb topic not worth discussing, you didn't stop yourself from wasting any breath on it.

    5: You say CoD is behind on many things. Wait, wait, wait. Isn't that reason enough to discuss what could be improved then? Another thing you fail to remember is that they release new CoD's more often than not. If I'm not clear enough, that means it's perfectly topical everytime there's a new game.

    6: While we're at it, hmm, let's add some empty insults to show just how much I want this person to go away!Edited August 2013 by poipoichen55
