While I'm sitting at work and have nothing to do I want to use my time to review my season - what happened - what did I learn.
First of all I want to mention that the rank you achive is worth as much as the effort you put in. Huh? You don't get that? Ok - I really saw a lot of people this season dodging or abusing against friends.
I heard lots of excuses. Koreans lag, Koreans only cheese... maybe Koreans are just better because they don't mind losing. Because they are better because they don't bitch after losing to a non-standard build. Maybe Koreans don't waste time with discing.
If anyone who achieved a high rank with abusing is reading this. Are you proud of what you achieved? Are you proud having a cool-looking rank with a good-looking record without putting effort and learning like - nothing - in 3 month? Well, have fun then!
I for myself can't deny I'm a player that looks after stats. Yes - that was before this season. I finally realized that I don't need to have a good record to be a good player. I wanted to learn. I played on the Korean maps as much as possible (when they were MOTW) and played as many Koreans as possible and picked the ones with good stats.
TvP vs Kor-FORCE (55-0 Korean on Medusa aka: InteR.sSam)
TvT vs In_Fighter (39-0 Korean on Medusa / he was an abuser though and got what he deserved - a loss)
And various other games against really good players. I mostly "dodged" foreigners because I just wanted to play against Koreans, but I obviously played foreigners because in the evening Korean players are rare. (Note: Koreans don't lag 90% of the time, 10% are laggy games for me and I will just say "sorry" and leave)
I played about ~300 games with my main account this season: mTw.NarutO achieving at best a B rank. I'm proud. I was stuck at the C+/B- level for like .. 150-180 game? I was frustrated from time to time, but I gained lots of respect. For example ToT)ret( said that he was amazed that I didn't give up. I'm proud of myself, because of that. I don't have a good record, in fact I've a negative one, but who cares.
I was B - with playing lots of Koreans - not giving up. I want to thank all the players who helped me to get better and supported me - in skype - on battle.net and in real life.
and a few more ! If I didn't write you down, don't worry, I haven't forgotten about you ;p!
This is a replay pack from my 6000th post, which means not too old against some really good players. I'm Terran btw!
