Though I'll be honest I didn't know if I should write because noone would care.
However, I read GoShox's blog with his slightly more impressive feat and thought fuck it let's go.
Another reason is that I hadn't been feeling so great lately, which after playing some bad games against some koreans and some other players resulted in a dislocated shoulder
so I was particularly happy about this upswing.
So here's the story, I had been losing some games,as described in my first blog, until I decided not to play during korean hours anymore.
And when I realised that season 9 was about to end I set my goal to get to C- for the first time ever and I decided to get there the easy way.
So I opened up some games "D/D+ Destination, you P", as ZvP is my best matchup.
And boy, the skill difference between koreans and non-koreans is bigger than I remembered it to be, I played 4 games, and 3/4 were so one-sided and easy it was ridiculous. In the one game that wasn't - which coincidentally was against the only player who was D instead of D+, I got really lucky:
I had controlled the whole early game and it was looking good but I got a little lazy and let my macro slip so at one point he suddenly was in my natural with a huge army while only had little parts of my army to defend, he destroyed my nat, walked up to my main ---- bam, he lost connection to the internet. I get lucky, I win.
So everything was going right, I got two more wins against TL's own decafchicken and one more against some D player who seemed to be playing for the first time.
So here I am with 3038 points after a 7game winning streak right before the season ends.
Sure I didn't beat even a single C- player to get there so I'm not a real C- player, sure I got there by just playing my best mu, sure I would have gotten there much earlier if I didn't play such damn few games, but I don't care I'm just happy for now.
Also I just saw Inglorious Basterds, pretty fun movie :p
My goal for the next season is to get my ZvT on the lvl that my ZvP is, I've already beaten C- Ts with it, but I'm incredibly inconsistent at it and I still lose to D players as well.
So yeah I hope it'll be a fun season with me playing a whole lot more games than this one, and I hope I like the new pro league maps (tbh I'm not nearly as excited as I was when I first saw outsider and heartbreak ridge etc.)
