Meeting IMMvp @ ASRock’s M8 Sydney Showdown

16th September 2013

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday along with cBsM, I attended the ‘ASRock’s M8 Sydney Showdown’ a free StarCraft 2 event held at the UNSW Roundhouse organised by Oceanic eSports. It was my first SC2 event and I was super excited for the day since my Terran hero IMMvp, a 4 time GSL Code S Champion will be there for the day :D :D Yaaaayy

The event was supposed to start at 12.15pm, but due to technical difficulties, we end up sitting in the audience seat for about 2 hours waiting for something to happen. Mvp was probably getting restless, as he started queuing up ladder games and playing placement matches XD (He end up in Silver league)

Let’s talk Starcraft 2

24th May 2012

Dear Chibi,

As some of you may know, I love Starcraft 2, a military science fiction real-time strategy video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment. I’ve previously posted several blog entries related to my experiences on the ladder. I don’t consider myself a “gamer”, as I don’t play video games all that much. However, Starcraft 2 is a bit of an exception. I know, that sounds weird considering it’s one of the most difficult and competitive video games out there. Many players feel frustrated and their fear of losing deters them from the game entirely. If you lose, you have no one to blame but yourself. It can make you feel pretty bad, and why play a stressful game that makes you feel horrible when games are supposed to be fun? The match-making system also pits you against other players of similar skill level, so you will lose about 50% of the games. It is inevitable.
