A Year of Starcraft II

A Quick Update

I spent too much time on reddit post gaming, so I’m not going to do a big write up tonight.

All in all, it was a good night.  I continued to work on spending my minerals, and it’s paying off.  I did a little better in ZvZ too, although apparently I could’ve done better.  I’m still at a point where I don’t know what everything I see means, or what I should do to respond to what I know.  I suppose that just playing and playing will lead to being better at this.

One of the games, a very long one vs. a Terran, was a lot of back and forth and some of the stream watchers wanted to see the replay, so here it is.  I was surprised to see that my APM was 85 at the end of that game.  My hands weren’t though.  I’ve been forgetting to stretch, but won’t anymore after tonight’s apm heavy play.

Also, there was a request for a playlist.  I joined Spotify, thanks to a commenter’s suggestion here, and have found a crapload of dubstep.  One playlist in particular I keep listening to:  TOO Much Dubstep – Updated July 2011  Pretty much everything dubstep you’ve heard on my stream for the past week or two is from this playlist.

Time for some much needed sleep.

Goodnight and GLHR (Goodluck!  Hi Reddit!)

    I wish I could watch your stream, but unfortunately it’s at 3am or something for me :(. Still, it’s great that you’re improving! What league are you in now?

    Also, awesome playlist 😀

    Wow, 85 APM. That’s faster than I play, and I’m a mid-diamond Z. Keep working on scouting and reacting, and make sure your macro actions are crisp and you’ll get far.

    Ha! I found you! I saw a post about you on reddit, though: “can’t be the same guy…..”

    Then I find your blog and see that you posted the replay of our game.

    One the most intense matches I’ve played, can’t wait to play against you again.
