just get a place in North Van it's cheap here and the North Shore is very nice
I also live on the North Shore. I would never live downtown, it's not my lifestyle at all.
I've lived in a furnished apartment with a view3 of the city and the water for the last 3 years, paying 1750 a month. Soon moving to a 2bdr with the gf, will be only 1500 a month combined so I'll have a bunch of extra money each month to spend on fun. I'm only 15 minute drive from the city, but I never go because the city isn't my thing.
BC is great, and if you're coming here for online play and aren't a big city social type, there are hundreds of smaller towns you can live in, enjoy the outdoor life when not playing, smoke great bud, etc.
I don't care about the live games because I play live about twice a year. Online is where it's at get 50x more hands while wearing my underwear and doing other things on my other monitor and able to take breaks to play with the dog or make some food whenever.
