Last night boxer played in the round of 64 beating his opponent (T) 2:0. GomTV estimates that close to 800,000 viewers logged onto their site to stream the matches. In both games, just when Boxer’s opponents would counter to Boxer’s base, the GomTV website would die due to the explosion of viewership. Numerous other sc websites and media sites also crashed due to Boxer’s matches. While popular user streams jumped to hold 12,000 viewers, tripling their previous records. The GomTV website downtime angered Koreans so much that “Zoo Gallery, Dusan Bears (Korean Baseball Team) Gallery, other Korean Baseball team galleries, and other sites with gallery’s that had anything to do with bears (Korean word for bear is Gom) were bombarded with insults and profanities.”
Oh and the games were pretty amazing too, looks like Boxer was holding back his real skills in previous replays as I suspected.
