A Year of Starcraft II
The stream is working! Bam! Just like that! Thanks derpaling for the suggestion, Xsplit was easy as hell! (Okay, done with the exclamation points.)
I’m le_temps on justin.tv. I will start streaming the placement matches Friday June 24th at 9pm Central US time. Bronze League here I come! (I kid, but, yeah, probably.)
I am hoping to go through all the placement matches tomorrow night, but there will be breaks every once and while (my dog has the world’s smallest bladder). For these games I won’t be talking. I had said I would try talking to those who left comments asking for it, but right now I think I would do even worse than I will just focusing on the game. When I’m more comfortable, I will start talking about what I’m doing and thinking.
I almost didn’t even get on the computer tonight. Just one of those days. After a backbreaking day at work, I could barely keep my eyes open when I got home. But I still wanted to play. It just took a bit longer to get myself worked up for it. It is crazy how much I like playing this game. And now I can finally start on the ladder.
Tonight, I played about 5 games vs the AI, not really worrying about anything but getting my timings down. I was doing well, hitting almost everything and keeping myself good for supply and my minerals right where they should be. If the game went long, I had a plan and kept building. I don’t think my minerals went up over five or six hundred for any of the games. Now I’ll just have to see how I hold up in the placement matches.
I’m going to be playing as Zerg. And unless I end up with like 50 straight losses, I’ll stick with it. I’ve got two builds I’ve been practicing with, and will probably alternate between the two. Scouting and keeping my minerals low are my priorities at this point. I’m sure all of it will go out the window once I start playing though. I have a tendency to lose focus when I get into the thick of a battle. But at least after tomorrow night I can just practice, practice and practice on the ladder.
Goodnight and GLHF.
