Well, the 18+ rating on SC2 was really a bit stretched to being with, clearly an attempt by the networks to gain a somewhat stronger grip on eSport's broadcasts

It would be really funny if Blizzard gave them back there own medicine, and opted themselves that SC1 (as it contains gore, smoking, swearing, etc) should be rated 18+ in South Korea..

Then KeSPA's grip over it would become even more worthless ^^
