[Official] Starcraft 2 Strategy & Discussion Thread - Page 1973

post #19721 of 25319
Does anyone have any problems with SC2 running as a non-steam game? I believe 1.5 may have broken it, since I've had no trouble beforehand. I know it uses a launcher, but now, once it closes, it thinks SC2 is closed for good, even though the actual game is now booting.

CNN posted an article a couple of days ago talking about pro gaming and gaming addiction in South Korea. They followed MarineKing at WCG2011 and looked at his path to becoming a pro.

http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2012/08/tech/gaming.series/korea.html

Some people were upset that they highlighted the "dark side of gaming" and they posted a follow-up yesterday:

http://www.cnn.com/2012/08/05/tech/gaming-gadgets/esport-athletes-gaming-south-korea/index.html

There's also a video with MVP:

Kinda interesting to see this stuff on CNN, though I don't know if all publicity is good publicity.

So I decided to play some on one of my platinum accounts. I went 6-2 for the most part I did ok.

My first game was against a diamond toss. Cheese off the bat!

My last game was against a Terran.

So guys tell me if you notice something blatant I need to work on.

I do pretty well vs terrans. The only game I lost was the first when I played GREEDY. Had 3 nexus before I had gas at my second and instead of making gates I made robo and 2 forge and twilight (yeah my own fault) Coudln't make enough units to stop his push mad.gif

It's like the "blame the devil's music" all over again in my opinion.

I bet more people have been negatively impacted or died from sports addiction throughout the time games have been around for, than as a result of gaming (adrenaline junkies who go to higher and higher extremes to satisfy their needs for a rush is just one example).

The key like it has been said a ton is moderation - almost anything in excess can be harmful. I'm not sure if the article conveniently left it out, correct me if i'm wrong, but I heard many members of professional starcraft teams take regular breaks to exercise.
