Two months ago, US Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel produced her wishlist of changes to US law. One item in particular caught our interest—the suggestion that the online streaming of copyrighted content be bumped up to a full-scale felony. Late last week, Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and John Cornyn (R-TX) introduced just such a bill.
THIS B.!TCH wants to make streaming ILLEGAL w/o a license from whatever companies' game you're using!

WHAT THE F*CK

Wanted: A Starcraft 2 tutor or noob buddy to practice with.

Pay: I'm not paying you in anything but star stickers, but only if you pay for them.

When: When I'm not at work.

Where: USA servers. Gotta love the lack of cross server things.

Why: I suck at Starcraft 2, what else!?

PM for more info? I don't know...

Playing (and winning) against Hard and Very Hard AI got me out of Bronze. I got out of bronze about 2 weeks ago . Have you tried doing the same?

I don't know if you will perform better. Macroing with T and P is a little different but a lot of the times your problem has nothing to do with droning or making units, in fact exactly the opposite, and doing nothing at all. Let's just say when I watch you play am often times confused as to what you are even looking at. I've seen larva sitting at your base @ both hatches doing nothing with 2000/600 in the bank ( and no mutas on the way ). That's exactly the same as having a bunch of barracks or gateways just sitting there doing nothing. I don't think it would be wise for you to play either of those races until you can grasp the fundamentals of the game not just Zerg. Though if you feel those races are better suited for you for other reasons go for it. Chances are if you play P or T you will be so much worse than you are with Zerg, and honestly that won't help either of us get better.

I think the one thing that kind of bugs me about your attitude, while for the most part awesome and positive.. is that you always seem to make up an excuse for the problem without just acknowledging issues better players give you as advice. I'm confident every good player would tell you to work on your spending and building more than learning what units and upgrades can do what, because as I've said its by far the biggest whole to your game. My perfect example is that game that you went roach, and very late muta vs yks... you said you shoulda got muta faster. Well guess what? That's completely false and has nothign to do with that match what so ever. You could have won with roach just fine if you spent... so why even mention something like muta. That's like, I could have won with a dark templar , but you have 10k in the bank and you lucked out because your opponent wasn't prepared for it. So, I know that you are going to give me 10 reasons justifying your reasoning behind it, and I honestly think you are putting far too much thought into something that isn't your problem at all.

But of course I'm willing to practice.
*claps* I was searching the older posts and this one caught my attention. I bolded the part a lot of players have a problem with. (2nd paragraph)

(This isn't directed at anyone. Just people that have this stubborn personality)

A lot of us that played Brood War dealt with this same issue. Less experienced players would always make excuses when their macro was the clear reason for their loss. You could have insane micro and still lose if your macro is bad. Also if people that are in Master's league are trying to give you advice and you just make up excuses it just makes you look even more ignorant. If you want to truly get better at SC2, you have to listen to when more experienced players are giving you advice. It's ok to have your own ideas, but you can't just blow off their ideas and make excuses for why "such and such" didn't work.

Too many times I've seen people say "Oh I lost because of this... or that" Then you watch the replay and it's obvious things like bad build order, too much queue of units, mass stockpile of resources, supply blocked, and etc.

Gosucoaching or whatever else place that offers coaching to players will be a waste of money if you just argue with them all day about why you think your gold/platinum level strategies are better than his Master/GrandMaster theories.

I remember when I had a couple of the Teamliquid mods, coach me in some BW games back in the day. It was tempting to argue with them, but the advice they gave was right. I learned to listen to what they told me and try to apply it in my own games. I admit I also wanted to give up some times during the practice because their skill level was overwhelming and they were playing with me in some games, but you can't give up. Just keep practicing and try to learn from your mistakes. Please don't make excuses though it will only hurt yourself in the long run.

I like to give advice to people that I'm playing against even during the middle of the game. I would hope they would do the same to me during/or after the game if it would make me a better player.

This is why I only mine minerals and only produce marines. So much less to manage without all that pesky gas getting in the way. Just plain old pylons and probes. And marines. Lots of marines.

Sad part is some people actually post like that in the lower leagues.

I was reading teamliquid yesterday and a guy told one of the more experienced players that he doesn't use a certain unit because it's too annoying to control.

It's cool though that places like Teamliquid are getting more strict on what people post in the strategy forums. Like for example "I didn't watch your replay, but if you would of did blue flame hellions you would of won." That got the poster an immediate warning because clearly in the video the zerg opponent had spine crawlers and roaches everywhere.
