Hellboy, I started the season in Bronze so I needed that many matches to both improve and get my MMR up...yes, I know I still suck in comparison to most of the people on this board, but I'm still happy.

Garmeth did you play SC1?

my parade = fucking rained on

considering all the campaign players left the multiplayer game by the time u started playing its a pretty good accomplishment smile.gif

i get to watch a korean SlayerS team member who is temporarily staying in TOronto.... so i'm confident i'll never make the Masters level though because i've seen what you have to do.... i'm too slow.

i think if no one played my account i'd be in the top 30 of a diamond league smile.gif
Instead i get to beat up top platinum players on a regular basis because my pals keep screwing around with my account.

if u wanna play me .. just add me ... JimRaynor.902

anybody in masters league doesn't have impressive mechanics, and you do know that when slayers first came out the cutoff would probably be the equivalent of like 1100 masters ATM, boxer was literally looking for mid to high masters randomly to build in to a solid team.

I wouldn't be impressed

SC2Gears tells me that my APM is around 112, which I think is pretty good considering my last RTS was Dawn of War II, where you simply need a pulse to have a fairly high Elo.

You have a right to be happy, just not here apparently. It took me about four months from Bronze to Diamond I think.

If you apply yourself and are not braindead you can get at least Masters. I'd like to think I just didn't apply myself.

I don't think you understand tongue.gif, the old slayers had a low requirement to join, it was more of like a community clan back in the gsl open seasons and I remember reading a thread when you only needed to be around like rank 1000 in points back then to join, that's not to say that the main slayers players aren't excellent but there is a group of people that are just part of the community like bekho. You won't find him on their GSTL roster or him living in the competitive slayers team house ( to my knowledge anyway).


But my main concern is why do you sell yourself short? You say you'll never be masters and you idolize people who are mildly successful, a rank 8 platinum got rank 1 masters by doing the same marine scv all-in every single game. I just think you separate the pros from the mediocre players too much like there is some profound difference in the genetics of say Major to a random gold league joe. Everyone sucked at RTS orginally, you just seem to hate on people that don't have outstanding success in RTS atm that criticize players that are professional, like how you hate me, darkstorm when he bashes on huk, etc etc etc. Except in this case I'm actually on the same or above the level of bekho so ohmy.gif. We've met on ladder before a lot and he's just a normal master league T trying to win some games, don't praise the guy like a god and say you'll never be able to play as fast as a normal master league joe.
