Hello, Giant Bombers. I have a problem. What is this problem? Well, I suck at a game you might have hear of. The game is called StarCraft 2. Before I jump into this, I'm going to give you some back story.
I never played StarCraft 1. I was aware of it, but I never got it. Around September of last year, I decided to pick up it's sequel, StarCraft 2. I played through the entire campaign, completely ignoring the multiplayer. When I finally finished the awesome campaign, a couple of months after I started, I decided to try and jump into 1v1. I played my placement matches, only winning one of them. I was placed in the bottom of the bronze league. And the bronze league is where I have been ever since. I've played Starcraft 2 off and on since then, getting higher and higher in Bronze. In fact, at one point, I was ranked 10 in bronze and improving. But then tragedy struck. I stopped playing Starcraft. Here I am, several months later, rank 40 in Bronze and sucking again. Well, I am on a quest to get out of bronze league. Not only that, but eventually reach Gold league. Silver is just the temporary goal.
So, that's that. Now forwards to the stuff that happened today. It won't be that exciting right now, since I just started.
Anyways, today I played two games. I know what you're thinking, "Two games! That's crazy, how can you play that much!?" I know, I know, calm down. Two whole games. At this rate I'll be Grandmasters in no time. I won the first one and lost the second one.
Game OneSo , this game was versus Zerg, and I felt like I did very good. He was favored. I play Terran, by the way. Anyways, I started off with a standard build, marine marauder, and attacked his base quickly. By that time I had 4 barrack's and one factory. I started attacking his base, and was successful until a huge army of roaches came from behind me. Seeing this, I start to pump out marauders and siege tanks like crazy, and I held off his attack. Seeing that I had mostly units that couldn't shoot air, he started making mass Mutalisks. With a lucky scan in his base, I spotted them, and then started making as many Thors, Vikings, and Marines as I could. He started harassing me with the mutas, but I had enough to make him retreat. I built a couple of missile turrets, but he still kept harassing me.
Then he disappeared for awhile, and I decided to send my army of thors, marines, marauders, siege tanks, and vikings out. I start attacking his base, and he has quite a few roaches, but I managed to take them out. But just as I started to attack his base, he starts attacking mine. It was a race to see who would destroy who's base first. But, I had enough minerals, so I built more expansions, for the sole reason to survive longer. His army attacking my base was only mutalisks, so my missile turrets destroyed them all, a long with a couple of left behind marines. I destroyed his base, and he GG'd out. Game one was a win.
Game TwoThis one was against another Terran. It was a standard build for both of us. I tried to banshee harass, and killed some of his workers. But then he sent out his huge army. We both had marine marauder, but his army was bigger. I killed quite a few of them with banshees, but it wasn't enough. He overwhelmed my army, and defeated me. This one is short because the game was short.
So...What now?Well, I guess I'm done with my first entry in the series. Sorry if it sucked, next time I will have pictures, more games, and maybe video. I am rank 37 right now I believe.
This isn't a daily thing, or even weekly. It's just every once in awhile, when something important happens.
And to all of the other bronze player out there I believe in you.
