To answer that question I'll first begin with a recap of our relationship. When we had first met we got along pretty well and I slowly learned more about him: he'd taken years off of playing StarCraft and had only just begun playing again for fun, he majored in business and was still in university or college at the time.
I label him a frenemy because he was a friend at first. I still remember one of his most touching comment he had about me. The conversation went something similar to this:
Mr.Dbizzle: I never planned on playing StarCraft but now I want to stay since I just met the most kindest person I've ever met.
Ty2: Who's that?
I'm not exaggerating by the way. For the most part most of his wording is intact and just how impactful his words were from that day is why I remember it so well.
However, even though I felt like I knew what he was like I overlooked one part of his personality I learned far too late: he hates cheese with a burning passion. I for one am a cheesy player and often am cheesy when unmotivated to move my hands around for a macro game-an unfortunate pair of players indeed doomed for disaster.
One of the main reasons I cheesed so much against him was because cheese was effective against mr.dbizzle in winning games in our ZvP matchups since he never would adapt to my cheese plays ever. He'd just assume I was going 12 hatch every single game so where I found holes, I exploited them no matter how simple they may be.
It wasn't frequent cheesing though that caused our relationship to plummet downhill-it was a combination of an already sour mr.dbizzle and the frustration added on by a 5 pool. The day started off with mr.dbizzle telling me his mother had thrown away a whole weeks worth of work he had done for his university into the garbage, and some part of me thought "I really shouldn't 5 pool to make him even more mad." Unfortunately, I did win with my 5 pool, but at what cost for the chemical reaction had resulted in a steamed mr.dbizzle of monstrous proportions.
He started name calling, swearing, and refused to acknowledge defeat by cheese. Defeat overall became so sour to him he started manipulating the meaning of cheese to his own benefit labeling any sort of play style or build a person does as cheese just so it had less impact on his ego.
He grew cocky and acted like he was good, which I hate to admit, he actually did get good from a D+ ranking to C+ on iccup. Just imagine 1998 Brood War newb turned into a bm 2005 pro except improving 10 times faster. He relearned the game pretty fast and surpassed me by a longshot with me being only D+. During this time we had completely stopped playing 1v1 games.
Our last two games we ever played forever cemented my confidence over Mr.Dbizzle. They took place after almost a month of not having played a single 1v1 game. I decided to play him just once in a play/obs ZvP game.
In short, it started off as a grudge match when he put proxy cannoned at the top of my ramp on Fighting Spirit followed by a snarky comment: "now you know how I feel" referencing the numerous times I've cheesed him followed by an even snarkier observer who typed "so ironic." I ended up winning the game and felt amazing. Mr.Dbizzle only lay in silence stupefied by how his cheese backfired on him. The following game was a ZvZ which I also won using speedlings. I discuss the game I played with him in greater detail and my resentment towards him in a previous blog post of mine shown below.
Anyway, months passed, and like the coward I am refused to play him anymore. It got to the point where he said it was okay to cheese him if I so wanted to. Request after request denied holding onto my 2 wins and slowly the existence of mr.dbizzle had faded silently never to be heard of from again....or so I thought.
Just today and for the prior 2 days before I had played MuJuk[emg] who said his aka was pokbal_zerg. He so eagerly asked me to ZvZ him after telling me how he'd taken a break from SC for 1 month and now getting back into the game sucked monkey balls at ZvZ. I played maybe around 20 games of ZvZ with him.
Just today he asked to ZvZ me again, to which I told him I wanted to TvZ him instead, and if he beat me TvZ I'd ZvZ him, and whenever I beat him ZvZ we'd TvZ. Our first game since I really didn't want to ZvZ the 2nd game I used the classic Barracks Barracks Supply build defeating his 12 hatch build.
After exiting from the game into the op emg channel I typed to him that my cheese wasn't meant to bm him. He replied typing "I know i'm just saying i'm sensitive to cheese."
"Just like mr.dbizzle," i typed back
I was speechless at first, then relieved thinking he was lying after kh64[emg]. another member who was obsing our 1v1's typed "I thought your aka was pokbal_zerg, which indeed was the alternate account MuJuk said was his 3 months prior to today. I checked the pokbal_zerg stats. They came up as 0-0-0.
1 minute into the 2nd game he kept on talking about how he really was mr.dbizzle reminiscing how he hated when I cheesed back then and how I'm still cheesing him to this day. He then proceeded to type "I will kill you" followed shortly by a :D emoticon which makes the previous comment completely hilarious and socially acceptable.
He 9 pooled, I 2 raxed and held off his 6 lings, and then charged with 8+ marines and a bunch of scvs to his late expansion hatchery sealing in the 2nd game for my victory.
I was still not completely convinced MuJuk was mr.dbizzle, and when he switched to the dbizzle account I was speechless, shaking! According to kh64[emg] "everyone knew" that MuJuk was mr.dbizzle's smurf.
I refused to play another game and just left. I feel so duped. I still can't believe I played so many games with Mujuk not realizing his AKA. Looking back in hindsight I didn't see any of mr.dbizzle's arrogance in MuJuk, to which mr.dbizzle replied that's because "he doesn't care about SC anymore." Also MuJuk would always go 12 Hatch and this 1 time I did a 9 pool speedling build and won MuJuk just told me to tell him ahead of time if I'm going to 9 pool because he's always going to 12 Hatch no matter what so he can leave early. When the next game started I told him I was gonna 9 pool and he left. 20seconds into the game.
He'd get defensive too and talk about how bad my cheese was. I did cheese him one time 2-3 months ago in our one and only game against mr.dbizzle on his MuJuk account when I wasn't aware of his AKA. He just typed "I can tell you're a very cheesy player" when he knew full well I cheese a lot. I can tell he was trying to hide his real identity.
It seems so hilarious looking back at what just happened. Mr.Dbizzle was right under my nose all this time.
