The chances of you ever meeting someone who is paid to play is minuscule even if you were topping out your diamond league. In fact they even have their own league/ladder for these people its called the master league the chances of you playing against one of these guys is about as high as your Sunday league team making it to the world cup.

Don't talk rubbish about a game you clearly know nothing about.

You didn't like sc2 for whatever reason that's fine, but to try and spread a whole lot of BS about how supcom is more strategic or how the pro players mean you cant play sc2 is just petty and frankly completely inaccurate.

This thread is funny.

Starcraft 2 is awesome and has a very strong community. If you like RTS games then check it out for sure. Forget all the fanboy idiocy in this thread. Just pick it up, settle into the game at your own pace, and have fun.

Secondly, the reason why Starcraft 2 is so popular is because of Starcraft 1. And also because Korea has take video games way out of proportion. I will get to this later.

SupCom2 does have regular tournaments with prizes up to a few Grand - not much compared to Starcraft, but no-one plays this game proffesionally so its an unfair comparison.


Unfortunately in Korea, Starcraft has created a a 'virtual' sports which is not only very detrimental for Korea's youth, but has created this hyped-up competition in video games. Video games were created as a way to relax, and will always remain a-way to relax.
i dont think this is very fair. what does it matter what the game was created for? videogames have evolved into a potential sport with real competition and real enjoyability for spectators. i love watching starcraft, i love it more than watching footieball.

sure, you can use the argument that it could have an effect on their physical health because they practise so much. but alot of players these days also do other things, including exercise, as well as their jobs. likewise, you could make the argument that no starcraft player has ever suffered a torn achilles tendon or crucial ligament injury whereas its very common in competitive sports.

you might make the argument that their social lives suffer. speaking from the perspective of sc1, they all live in team house dorms. they live together, eat together, practise together, sweat together, win and lose together. there isnt many transfers in starcraft; in 95% of cases, you stick to the team that you were a rookie in until you retire. alot of these guys develop genuine bonds and genuine friendships. some of them may be dorks but alot of them probably could function perfectly well outside of gaming.

you might say after they retire, they wont have anything to do. this is a pretty fair point, there arent alot of job prospects for someone who finishes highschool and goes straight into progaming. you could become a coach, or a commentator, sure. you could use your salary (if you were an a-team player) you saved up to pay for your university course (and be several years behind.) but this isnt really much different to any other sport

alot of these guys are far more mature and pleasant than people like professional rugby league players anyway. alot of sportsmen (im thinking footballers in particular) live really lavish and wasteful lives compared to what these starcraft players do. hell, the best sc1 player atm doesnt even have his money, it goes straight to his parents for safekeeping and he gets a little allowance.

bobba ive rolled on too much. what am i trying to say? i dont see any problem with competitive esports taking off. i think its a great initiative and its sad that, despite games being fairly prevalent, its still relatively obscure and small.

can you imagine seeing a proleague with 20 teams in it and a secondary division below it, with teams all trying to get into the top league? thousands of players involved? id LOVE it, but right now im happy with what ive got

I don't even like rts games normally but the Single Player campaign is the most fun I've had with a single player game in a loooonnnnnnngggggg time. It's so cool, such high production values and cool story, so much variation in missions. Best single player rts campaign EVER.

As for multiplayer, I'm not any good, but there's all sorts of custom maps and alternate type of games that I like. Like ship battles and stuff.

There is a ton of fun to be had without becoming a starcraft hardcore player man, check it out!
