First and foremost, 20th official blog post! Woooo!
Secondly, hope you liked that ISTL Wrap-Up video. Expect the next one after the other semi-final match next week, so hang tight for that.
And now, the post itself.
So, I had my first couple of Platinum league ladder matches when I finally had an opportunity to play and it was a quick reminder of why I don’t belong in Platinum.
Putting this out there for a second time to see if anyone who follows me on Tumblr or Twitter is interested in asking me anything. Don’t really need much in the way of proof, it’s my freakin’ blog.
I’m the “Starcraft Noob” and the founder of the GKick Network at gkick.net as well as Observer Casting. I cast StarCraft II, I’m a Platinum league Terran (tho you wouldn’t think it!) and I also operate GKickTV on Twitch.
Ask me anything!
When my little “Adventures of a StarCraft 2 Noob” blog started, I was a lowly bottom-tier Bronze level player. My plan was to document how I climbed the ladder in SC2, what I learned, and how it put it into practice.
As the blog evolved, I started to share some of the “beginner tips” I thought would be useful, as well as just my thoughts on certain things in the community. I branched out into video casts and ultimately a brief webshow, the Noob Nightly. It all slowed down up until a few weeks ago when I was able to launch Observer Casting, my eSports community site.
So, I need to get some practice in, sorely.
Oh, not practice playing. Practice CASTING.
So tonight, I’ve got a list of some games featuring LiquidHerO, KawaiiRice, LiquidHayprO, my buddy ViPER, and the legend himself Flash.
I should start casting at around 6:30pm EST on http://twitch.tv/gkick
Don’t miss it! It’s gonna be great times!
Oh, and do me a favor. Go check out ViPER’s awesome Zerg blog, Zergology. It’s a great resource for Zerg players!
