And then going back to taking poker seriously, which lead me to Vegas, which in turn took me back to, you guessed it, Starcraft and Team Liquid.
Oh baby was I obsessed about this site. Look at my post count. I worshipped the ultimate protoss guide writer, BigBalls. I talked a big game, knew all the strats, joined a romanian clan, 5thF, the fifth force baby and.... never made it past C- or any top leagues. I won a mouse pad in a school league once with my fake 300 APM though, I was a paid pro!
And here I am in Vegas, reaching our to who wants to do a pod, and I contact none other than PuertoRican. I doubt the old schoolers who remember that man are even here, he was too old school even for me! The legend flew under the radar, organising BW leagues, and was the first westerner who went to Korea to produce content. He made Artosis for gosh's sakes!
That took me back, I went on to make an intro of clips that brought a tear to my eye. I am old, very old, just like those people when you look them up now! Ryan Daut even dropped his "BigBalls" nickname, I wonder why.
Well anyway, enjoy the trip to the past as we talk Elky, Nazghul and the True old school times, when the only language you could watch progaming for 98% of the year was Korean.
