Disease & Addiction
You need to have a addictive personality to be good at E-Sports because the sport demands a serious work ethic. I literally play 24/7 all three hundred and sixty five days a year. I’m non-stop playing. As you can see by the lovely layout of this blog I’m not keen on keeping it pretty. I’m rather keen on keeping the content effective.
With that being said you need to addicted the process of becoming the best player in the world. Literally, the addiction needs to be so strong that you can’t stop and think about anything else in the world except for gaming. Starcraft 2 is one of my favorite things to do in the world. Heck, real life takes a backseat.
No matter what I’m doing I’m thinking about how I can perfectly time out a zerg rush or how I can micro my first drone to piss off the terran opponent even more while building my base up perfecting timed. The level of play in the higher master leagues is insane. If you don’t have your build down to the second you’ll get smashed when it comes down to mid-game. One zealot off, one roach off or one upgrade off… that’s all it takes to lose/win a game in the masters league.
To be one of the best players in the world you need to be up on all the latest information. I follow Day9 and his videos about starcraft because he’s a very progressive player.
Here’s one of his videos about micro. I’ll get into micro a little more in later blog posts.
