For those not following Starcraft 2 news like I was, Blizzard did a reset of the ladders last week and with it a few people I know like my brother, a coworker and a few friends started playing again. I had not stopped completely playing before the reset but I wasn’t playing much either. You can only get your ass handed to you so often before you figure you’d better take up knitting.
But with the reset and my friends playing again, I’ve rediscovered my love for this game. I even went back to 1v1 and actually had fun loosing some games. I think the reset did a lot of good because I get to play people my own skill level again, something that wasn’t happening too often before. I’m not sure what and if they changed anything with the match making but it’s a lot more fun now.
I’ve decided to go all out terran this time around and actually follow some expert advice by picking a proven build and sticking with it until I master it. I picked something versatile of course just because I like having options but on the whole I want to see if I can improve by following the theorycraft. If it works for WoW, it might as well work for SC2.
If you’re one of the returning players and want to practice or have fun you can add me to your friend list, Lono (code:248).
