So.. Let's start with my playing Starcraft.
Over the course of those 5 months, I only played about 100 ladder games. Half with Terran and the other with Zerg.
For the first week after my self ban, I played maybe a dozen games with zerg. I just got bored and decided to quit playing Starcraft on ladders. I played the occasional Play/Obs on Bnet or UMS but nothing too serious. During this time I tried out WC3(zzz...), and picked up D2(quit before my addiction could truly kick in).
That lasted until early/mid April. I started playing with a few different clans but they were not too active. At this moment however, I am very happy with my clan so that keeps me somewhat active. From Mid-April to Mid-May (clanless or with inactive clan) I played about 40 games as a Terran and stayed at the 2900-3200 pt range. Playing Terran became somewhat boring so I picked up Zerg. Getting past the C- range took about 40 games and that is where I stand at the moment, C.
ZvP has been pretty fun to play as Hydras are my all time favorite unit. This 5hatch Hydra is the reason I stayed as zerg after switching over. ZvT at C- is pretty simple and not many at this level play Mech. Some people try to copy Leta and his cute wraith shit but they can't win with it.
So I am still trying for B- but with the extra time summer break brings, I won't be losing much actual gaming time.
Ok, next is school.
I'm heading off to Case Western next year so that should be a lot of fun. Anyone from TL in the Cleveland area? I looked at the User Location thread and I didnt see any Clevelanders but maybe some are lurking around here. Well hopefully every college bound senior is as excited to go off as I am.
First off I would like to say... what the fuck fantasy? That was probably the most depressing moment for me in progaming these past 5 months. Ya I am talking about his loss to Jaedong in the OSL. I wanted Fantasy to win sooooo bad and he losses out on a 2-0 lead. Hmm what else. Bisu has been super exciting to watch and Violet's recent games have been shocking. He is the only Protoss I have ever watched that reminds me of Bisu.
TvZ/ZvT isn't really as interesting as it used to be. Wraith play is awesome but Mech is balls to watch. The only games I watch here have Leta. Baby's play is cute but losing horribly in the mid game after awesome harass is kind of dumb. It seems like Nada is having Baby play outside his current limits. Lastly, oh man Airforce.
And trying to find progaming news without Teamliquid has been horrid. Luckily I can read/understand some Korean so afreeca is usable. Gosugamers is hell to navigate and truly makes me appreciate the live report threads/recommended games thread/tlpd. So basically i could watch games on youtube but was exiled from any news in the scene. Like, I had no idea that Nony returned from Korea long ago. I actually started lurking the tl forums in May but resisted the urge to post until now. I neither made a new account nor clicked the login button before today. So at least one good thing came from my attempt.
Evony sucks. That shit was so time consuming even in the early stages of the game so I quit.
I am no longer excited for Sc2. Maybe once they post an actual release date I will be again.
That mogulus streaming is fucking awesome.
How did Konadora get so many posts?
Damn.. I still haven't bought any starcraft related shirts, not even a TL one.
So ya that is it. There is probably alot of sc thoughts roaming in my head but these came out first.
