It’s no secret that I like hard games. Not those that are hard because of bugs or poor gameplay but those that are designed to be challenging. With my Resident Evil marathon over which included a few hard games I find myself looking for a new challenge.
I thought about doing a Final Fantasy marathon but quite honestly I don’t think I could survive it. Not only is there a lot of games but the time each need would probably drive me nuts before the end. Maybe someday I will but the Final Fantasy marathon won’t be happening soon. Besides the Final Fantasy games are not that hard to begin with.
The solution presented itself to me last week and it doesn’t seem to be going away so I think I’m going to go ahead with it.
My challenge for 2013 is to be better at Starcraft 2. Simple as that.
Long time readers know that it’s not first attempt at this and that I stopped the previous times after getting real discouraged. It is my hope however that I learned from my previous mistakes and that I will do better this time.
First order of business is defining that goal further because being better at Starcraft 2 is such a vague thing and can change depending on the person. I’ve thought long and hard about this and there’s really two things I want to achieve.
First and most important I want to be able to play a ladder game without being stressed out. I tend to get super stressed out when I play ladder and that needs to go away. It might not seem directly related to improving but I know that playing stressed out is not helping my game and that if I improve some it will help be less stressed.
Second I want to get to Platinum league. I need a concrete goal to achieve and I think that is a reasonable one. Back when the game launched I got to gold with protoss but since then the skill level has increased tremendously and getting to platinum would be a way to tell I improved.
So that’s my game challenge for 2013. Instead of beating a computer I’ll try to be better at defeating other human players. I’ll be doing updates from time to time here to let you guys know how it’s going.
