IM CASTING CHILL VS COMBAT-EX EGO bo5 STARCRAFT MATCH AT 4PM PST. STAY TUNED FOR STREAM LINK.
SERIES OVER -- MORE WILL OCCUR IN THE FUTURE
why does anyone give a fuck?
allow me to explain the backstory.
Once upon a time there was a wee canadian lad by the name of Combat-EX (whom I shall refer to as combat for the remainder of this story). Our good friend Combat began doing a unique wonderful thing for the starcraft community: he posted on youtube hundreds of starcraft VODs of himself playing with voiceover commentary. Traditionally, there has been an wealth of advice to bring players from the D level to the C level (ie bring weaker players to the intermediate level), but not so much anything to bring a TOTAL newbie to the understandings of starcraft basics. I saw Combat's rise in popularity and thought to myself "he's doing an excellent job of creating a doorway through starcraft's vicious barrier to entry."
Until "THE SCREENSHOT" was posted
After the release of this image, many other similar images were posted, all with Combat ex begging for the win and/or OFFERING TO WINTRADE? Immediately, the starcraft community trounced combat with vicious flames and his accounts were banned from iccup.
Much of the community demanded an apology video, which Combat ex provided. Unfortunately, it was one of the least genuine sounding apology videos of all time, so teamliquid raged still.
AND THEN COMES EPIC MOTHERFUCKING LEGENDARY EGO MATCH.
Chill, the strategy forum moderator for teamliquid, challenged COMBAT TO A BEST OF 5. This best of 5 will be cast in about ~1 hour (4pm) by Day aka MOI aka yours truly.
FUCK i can't wait. maybe this should be moved from my blog section to the general section so that further hundreds of people can check out the livestream (link will be up soon). FUCK YEAH BABY!
so i'm a very methodical calculating individual. i have not locked myself out of anything in 5 years. tonight, however, i get home and my neighbor is having a party. i say "sure i'll stop by, just lemme drop off my laptop." I drop it off and apparently leave my keys on the desk.
i call a fucking locksmith and he says its 35$ to come and 15$ to let me in. i say FUCK and say ok fine come over. he then proceeds to charge me 120 FUCKING DOLLARS JWKLFJAKLGJSA. i say WHAT THE FUCK NO YOU SAID 35+15 = 50. he says "no i said 15 and up." that fucking lying weasel. i obviously have no proof other than my word which is OBVIOUSLY FUCKING CORRECT since i have such an unrealistically good memory ESPECIALLY WITH NUMBERS.
i mean FUCK i don't program ANY PHONE NUMBERS INTO MY PHONE I REMEMBER ALL OF THEM BECAUSE I REMEMBER NUMBERS SO FUCKING WELL and this FUCKING SHITHEAD FAGGOT seems to think i would just let it slip by.
so now i lose 120$ that i cannot afford because of this fucking faggot
on august 13th, my br was 200$ and i owed 1.4k (to my bffs thundza and [vital]myth
yesterday my br was at 4.3k and i only owe [vital]myth 400!!!
last night i spewed a bunch (purely through my own bad play i feel) and am dropping back to .5/1 for discipline purposes, but all in all i'm very very satisfied with my play. with school in high gear, i'm doubly happy that i haven't played nearly as much as i could have and still had pleasing results.
