A Year of Starcraft II

I don’t always post updates to my blog…

Something…. something…. PLATINUM!


I forgot to screenshot the promotion, but this’ll do.  Feels good. I’m working my way up steadily.  A little over a month in gold, 200+ games played, and I’m still improving.  And of course I’ve been grinning ever since I got the promotion.

A more in-depth update will be posted tomorrow, as it’s my day off from playing, but I wanted to share the promotion.

    Congrats! Still making steady progress and thats awesome! Keep it up and you’ll totally make masters by the end of your year!

    That’s amazing! Keep up the hard work. For posterity, you should go back and cast one of your early replays and then cast the game that got you promoted to Platinum for a comparison. If possible, have it be the same race matchup. That’d be great!

    By next month, you should be diamond 🙂 Masters will be soon after that!

    I think you should start playing in some small scale tourneys.

    Congrats man! Very cool that you are playing zerg too. Quite the fun race and it brings such a fast-paced action to the game. Hope you keep getting better, good luck!

    Great… you’ve been playing for a fraction of the time and you’re already better than me. 😦

    Congrats though! Keep it up! We wanna see you at MLG one of these days 😀

    Good work!!!

    my story: my main is zerg, i have been in gold for a long time, although I have beaten a few platinums. sooo i offraced on my wives account through the placements and got put in platinum. I WAS PISSED!! i NEVER play P or T and yet I beat a gold zerg as terran.. i wanted to cry..hopefully he was drunk or something

    Awesome progression! Congrats!

  22. Nicholas September 27, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    Wow! I added you when you first started and I saw this coming when I noticed that you were #1 in Gold. I’m only in mid-Platinum myself and feeling a bit stuck, and seeing you ascend with regular practice is giving me some motivation to push on. Hope to meet you on the ladder before you rocket by.

  23. UberDrive September 27, 2011 at 2:08 pm
