Starcraft 2 combining regions
Blizzard is planning on combining some of Starcraft 2′s region-specific servers. It’ll result in an improved player experience no matter where you’re playing from. Personally I'm gonna hate the BR's if i have to play with them. Who really wants to hear "HUE HUE HUE Jajajajajajaja, give me money or I report you?"
The wider audience will result in less waiting time for ranked games and more accurate matchmaking, no matter what league you’re in. If you’re a chatty player you could potentially make a bunch of new friends too.
Region management appears to be a contentious issue for e-sports developers. Blizzard combine, but League of Legend’s Riot Games separate.
