It's just so frustrating to have a strong passion for a game like this, where there are tournaments in which many thousands of dollars can be won and not have anyone I know share that passion. I've tried to show my friends videos of the amazing crowds at MLG and the GSL but they just won't be won over. In their mind this is a game for needs and they'll go back to their ub3r l33t 360 no scopes thanks.
Who wouldn't be won over by that?
I wish I knew the means to boost esports in the UK because I sure as hell have the will. I think this song sums up my feelings the best:
Now I've had that little rant onto the main subject of this post. Recently I came back from a 5 month break from Starcraft 2, because I was a bit burnt out from it. On coming back, I decided to change to Zerg because I wanted a change of scene, having played Terran for over a year and only managing to get plat. That and I couldn't remember any of my build orders.
From what I've played of Zerg, I'm really enjoying it, though there are so many things in my game I need to improve. At a rough estimate, from around 3 days of playing I'm probably at mid gold level, which is ok but nowhere near where I want to be, which is masters of course (start playing this song now).
I feel I have a lot more potential with Zerg because everything just feels a lot more natural. So when I feel confident to start laddering I have decided to start one of those "Road to Masters" blogs, where I'll just analyse my play and maybe get advice from you guys. I know this was a bit of a ramble, but I've been meaning to make a blog like this for a while.
