I was ******ed and sent my scvs back to mine because I thought he turned around after seeing the bunker : ( I could have held it if I wasnt so greedy and then its basically gg because his cc wasnt even started.
SlayerSBekHo (SlayerSBaekHo??) wrote a semi-short article on how to get better at SC2. It's very basic, tough to read as his english isn't that good, but if you can pick out the small details I think it gives a really cool perspective coming from a Korean progamer. He makes references to Rain, Squirtle, and Cella, and how he, at one time, wanted to quit playing because he was under a lot of stress.
I am writing a 1500 word magazine article on e-sports and specifically Starcraft II. My goal is to give a good introduction into the e-sports world and a look inside of the extremely competitive world of Starcraft II. Is there anything you guys can come up with that would fit into this broad description that you think would be imperative for someone unfamiliar with our world to know about? I may use what you say as a quote, and will give you credit and post the final article here of course.
i would think trying to make comparisons to other sports would be the easiest way.
Tennis/Golf are individual sports in tournaments that may make favorable comparisons.
Along the same line, comparing different golf courses/tennis surfaces to different maps.
Opponent in tennis has a massive serve but weak baseline could translate into people who are good at timing attacks/rushes compared to players who like long rallies being macro players.
If it's just an introduction then I don't think timing attacks fit into, along with all of those comparisons. Plus, I think this is about esports/SC2 rather than SC2/concepts.
I think it would be cool to see how much esports relates to all societies, how integrated it is, and why eSports is becoming what it is. How it evolved, where it came from, where it's going. How big it really is in Korea with the GSL. I think it would need to be a very tight introduction as you're going to want to hit every point without being too generalized that it remains its own little world.
wtf... just joined a ladder game, and instantly the "waiting for player" screen pops up with my name on it.. I can still chat with the guy but for some reason it drops me and I get a loss. Thanks blizz.
As Park Sung Joon wipes a glistening bead of sweat from his brow you start to forget what you are watching. His face is contorted in utmost concentration and his fingers do the talking. It’s almost infeasible how fast he can move his hands in precise rhythmic coordination like that of a surgeon. Around him are hundreds, perhaps thousands of people with thunder sticks, poster boards, and outfits designed specifically for him. Multi colored lights are swiveled around the stage in patterns to excite, and you start to think you are at a rock concert. You notice Joon’s lips turn into a wry smile which can only mean one thing in any language. Joon has defeated his opponent and the crowd is now erupting into a deafening roar. Joon waves to them graciously and at that moment you lose yourself.
