As you guys know, everyone celebrates once they get to a certain number. Today, that certain number, is post number 1000. I've been on TL for one year and 5 months now (i joined Feb 11 2010, so close enough to 5 months) and I can't remember being this happy on a website in my entire life. Teamliquid has been there for me, whether I need help in Starcraft, just want to talk to people, or watch streams.
Before I knew about TL, I was this little Fastest player noob on USEast. Whenever I would play a real game, I would get completely wrecked if my opponent was at least decent, or it would be a complete hilarious affair if both of us were noobs. I was shown to Teamliquid but none other than the dreaded CombaT-EX himself. This was during his "apology video" (lmao) and he talked about TL on there. I came here, thinking this was just a retarded website, as I was drooling over combat and a "fanboy" of his. However, after about 1 month just looking into TL, I found out, hey, this isn't a bad place. This is amazing! And thus, on Feb 11 2010, FlaShFTW was born. Obviously, my name shows my obsessiveness with God Young Ho, so that's why that is my name.
After getting this account, I was a complete noob. I even had trouble just getting to the lastest OSL/MSL. I was even scared that I was going to be banned, hence the reason I had about 20 posts at my first ban in DECEMBER (9 months, 20 posts). However, I SLOWLY (emphasis on the slowly) learned to get better, with two more temp bans following the December one. However, I have gotten much better with the posting and hope to never get temp-banned, much less perm banned, again. TL is a happy place for me, and I want to enjoy it with everyone else here.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Teamliquid.net.
Stats on TL:
Temp-bans: 3 (2 two-day bans, 1 one-week ban)
I can also proudly say that I do not have another account on TL to get past any bans. I was thinking of doing that, but reasoned that it was not worth it. Just learn to post better stuff.
Since journeying into TL, I also managed to pick up a D+ rank with mix usage of Protoss and Terran. Thanks Liquipedia
