2006 CJ SuperFight 3
(≃ $33,836 USD)
The 2006-2007 CJ SuperFight was created by CJ Media (the sponsor behind CJ Entus) as a series of show matches. The series were broadcast live over a number of their channels: XTM (action movie channel), Xsports (sports), Mnet (music MTV-style); and internet streams: GOMTV (online streaming broadcasting) and Naver (internet portal broadcasting). CJ Media created elaborate introductions for players and featured lucrative prize pools, among the highest for a one-day event. Each broadcast also included First Person views of each participant and some matches branched into popular games aside from StarCraft.
The SuperFight show matches were held once approximately every month from October 2006 to May 2007. These show matches featured invited progamer with themes, such as New & Old and the Race Wars.
SuperFight 3 was held in a large outdoor soccer stadium after the first two SuperFights were very well received and attended. The opening match focused on gender as the female progamer ToSsGirL played a male progamer of her picking, resulting in her ex-STX SouL teammate JJu. The main event was between the two current Starleague champions (as well as previous SuperFight winners), NaDa, champion of the 2006 Shinhan Bank OSL Season 2 and sAviOr, champion of the 2006 Pringles MSL Season 1 and 2006 Pringles MSL Season 2.
