I don't make many blog posts but I felt that this was a good time to make one, recently I have become extremely bored with SC2, and found myself going back to Brood War to find that old nostalgic feeling, and I got that feeling and some, I actually now enjoy playing BW even more than I did before I stopped playing about 6 - 7 months ago because of SC2 Beta.
SC2 Is a fun game for me but I'm beginning to think that that is all it has to offer me, and even that doesn't offer me much, because I always find myself getting bored and not really having anymore fun on SC2 after a few games, I'm sure this is because I mass gamed so much since the beta, I've played over 6K games since beta I know that much.
My problem with SC2 is I guess the staleness of the maps, the dynamics of the game, it all just seems way to easy, or maybe a better way to put it is way to ' simple ' . That doesn't mean that you will win every game though, it's just the meta game , unit counters and everything is so simple, and then the whole giant armies colliding at once and whole armies just destroyed in a few seconds rather than the ' fillers ' ( I guess you could say ) in between battles in BroodWar, like for instance a Tank push across the map , inch by inch, battling your way with precise siege and unsiege to get to the desired checkpoint, I mean that can happen in SC2 as well but not to the same extent, it's just mostly giant armies colliding and just bassically simple massing of units.
I played Zerg in SC2 , this is probably one of the reasons why I get so bored of SC2 after losing so many times because of what I feel is small stupid mistakes , it becomes really frustrating and discouraging when you lose games all the time as zerg that you don't feel like you should have lost, after that happens a few times I bassically just lose interest and then find myself half ass playing and losing more which just causes me to get so bored and frustrated I just return to a game that I actually enjoy regardless of whether I win or lose , probably because of the difficulty, and the reward I am presented if I am victorious in battle.
I'm not sure if this will be the end of my SC2 gaming , I actually know it isn't , I guess I will just take a much needed break from SC2 until ( crossing fingers ) they release the new maps, which I hope will be soon.
I was thinking the today about BroodWar and SC2 and I thought... In my mind the majority of all the foreigners in the scene went to SC2 because of a few reasons, money, And because also they want something new, or maybe they want something easier and cannot take the pains from carpal tunnel anymore..Would I play a game that I might be a lot better at because of the simplistic way of the game but not enjoy it as much, or rather play a game that I love and enjoy but am not as good at?...The point is that this has been bothering me so much bassically since I started playing SC2 and I have finally come to grips with my true thoughts, I enjoy playing BW a lot more than SC2, even if it is a harder game to play (especially after I've been on SC2 for 6-7 months X_X )
I've been streaming BW almost every day now and I plan on streaming it every day because I check the streamer list a lot of the time and sometimes I really see 0 ZERO bw streamers, and i'm like wow...a little piece of me dies inside.. but it's time to revive myself, the spark and revival for my love of the game has already happened, so I am very happy right now. I just wanted to share.
There has been a lot of BW streamers though so I am happy for that, I'm glad we have BW streamers like hirosue, sayle, spacemarine, fedOr ( my personal favorite for the 1a2a3a restream OMG so funny ) , ect ect.
I want to figure a way help the BW community here on TLnet, while iccup is down this weekend I was thinking about having a bot in op TL-west , get games going, play / obs, maybe host a tournament and help get people some games vs some good korean players on west.
P.S. - The one thing that I feel I benefited from playing SC2 is that I mass gamed as Zerg, and now I think I am going to come back to BW as Zerg, that kinda sparked my love for the game again, a race I've never really played, it is so much fun too. My highest rank was B- before I started SC2, but I'm sure it will take me a long time to get back to that level. Thank you Teamliquid.
