I originally told myself I wouldn't get LOTV (pretty sure I have a post on reddit saying that to xD). I was disappointed in Blizzard's lack of changes and yet I got it anyway. I tried getting back into hots in march and didn't last long, maybe a week before I quit again. Tried lotv beta, wasn't a fan of zvz (and most players still played hots) so I quit again.
This week I have only been wanting to play LOTV. I am hooked to the game again and I think it's in part because everything is so different in ways. Builds, the new units are cool (except cyclones, what a bleh units) and it seems for the most part turtling is gone (for now anyway). I am not only motivated to play but also to start writing guides again. Doubt I will ever play in many online tournaments, but I might give WCS a shot. Depends on days and times of course, but my goal is to just have fun and improve at the game.
I am enjoying ravagers and lurkers a lot, experimenting with builds, good timings to get lurkers, using them defensively and attacking. It's nice for example that Protosses have to respect the Zerg a little more. For some reason most Protosses I have played only go blink stalker and never transition, so far faced 2 protosses that finally made disruptors. Zvt is fun and god is it satisfying to see lurkers destroy a bio ball. Fuck zvz!
I am still writing my book. I am at a little over 110,000 words. Hoping to finish this draft by December. With all the free time I am going to have, I better do it. I figure this book will get to 130k or so words before I finish the first one. Really looking forward to it, I have been writing this book for a little over a year. Looking at my last blog in January I was at 42,000 words. Been a little slow, but grinding on! After this, revise, revise and somehow get a book cover and editor for hopefully not too much money... This will be something I worry about later of course .
Aye until next time my fellow people, keep a positive attitude and if you hate something try to fix it!
