This year has gone full circle with our zerg hero, Nestea.
During Season 1 of the GSL, nestea was awful at the game (as with most people playing at the time) and was quickly defeated early in the tournament...
Then something happened in season 2 onward..
At a time where ZvT and ZvP were hugely in favor of any race that wasn't zerg, Nestea spearheaded the potential of the Zerg with 3 GSL championships. He quickly became a household name and was someone all zerg players looked up to. He had amazing holds, inventive strategies, excellent decision making. Nestea could see the world of starcraft through his Nestea-vision and somehow would dominate through pure ingenuity.
But something has happened to Nestea lately.
From AOL to Blizzcon to GSL November...
Nestea v IMMVP: 20 broodlords no support
Nestea v Huk: 2394827847520 banelings into archons, AFK muta
Nestea v BboonBboong: creepless hydra attack, failed bling rush, fly muta into hydras
Nestea has displayed some really questionable plays. It should be noted that in most games, he was ahead of his opponents, but somehow just threw away his lead by doing ridiculous strategies/mistakes that nobody pass gold-league would do.
BlizzCup was absolutely devastating to watch for me as a Nestea fan
Nestea vs MMA: Making ultra/lings attacked into marine/tank
Nestea vs Polt: Run all mutalisk/banelings into corner to die
Nestea vs Leenock: Run drones into banelings
How much hurt can a fan endure?
I quickly find myself angry at Nestea more than feel sorry for him.
He wasn't outplayed by the opponent, his macro was spot on.
He was just **********! [mod edit]
There I said it!
Nestea has become *******. [mod edit]
His mindless plays are shitting all over fans.
Watching BlizzCon to BlizzCup has made me realize that Nestea is his own greatest opponent.
I can only hope that he gets over what ever the hell is driving him crazy these last few months over the winter break. But I'm not holding my breath any longer. This fan is jumping ship.
