I think that's the major reason. Back when I was younger, I would spend a decent part of my summer gaming, usually mostly console games everything from RPGs to platformers, etc.... I used to also play sc1 a lot, on and off whether against the AI with friends/random people or through the SP, because, I loved the different abilities and loved to try different strats such as bugging the AI by mass controlling a ton of their units or just going around with scouts attacking undefended sunken colonies then withdraw before they reinforce them. Had SC2 been released earlier, as in a couple of years earlier, I might have been able to get better much faster due to less responsibilities, but, I feel your pain, lol.

Although, I will say that I've improved my gameplay a lot since I started playing SC2. Back when I started playing as Z, my macro was horrible, wouldn't expand, micro wasn't too great, creep spread was horrible as well and my spawn larvae was rather bad. I also wasn't using most of the Z units focusing mostly on zlings or mutas. I was losing to MMM pretty much every other T game and to zealots+stalker+sentry blob almost every P game. It was rather frustrating as well, but, I can handle MMM easily now and I have less problems with ZSS, so, practice makes perfect. I can also hold my own for a good while against higher ranked player, but, of course, since I'm not at their level yet, I'll lose in the end

I also just realized that I called you cramps in an earlier post, oops, my fault

I must be right at my level or even higher than where I should be because I can't even go close 1:1 right now. Played 16 games today and ended up like 40 points higher than where I started.

I'm getting destroyed @ times. Seems like everyone is 2200-2400 too. I don't get it... I've lose enough to have my MMR go lower yet people seem to be @ the same level. Not only that but I never seen to win much points anymore. Always +2X at most... and I do get paired up with people that I'm "favored" against even though they have way more points than me.

Still have 60 bonus pool but I had much higher expectations.

Well I do get ID'ed from time to time when buying cigarettes or co-workers thinking I'm only 19...so it ain't all that bad LOL.

Same but I do panic and do crazy cheese mid or late game that's why I lose...plus as thiru said I need more macro~

I'm pretty sure that was intentional..................LOL
