So the convergence point of
A) My parents wanting me to make some money over the summer
B) Me wanting to say bye to TF2 for good
C) my friend James selling his TF2 backpack for £15
made me look into how much I could get for mine - which according to http://backpack.tf/id/premasiri is $370 or about £230
So the convergence point of
So I’m madly jel of an acquaintance of mine from COGS - the Computer Gaming society for Bristol University. Not only has he been asked to apply for a copy-writing job at JaGeX (the company that made RuneScape, AKA 5,000+ hours of my childhood), but he gets to do all kinds of cool shit around esports and tech (he casts GO4SC2 on Sundays with ESL too :O). Anywho, he’s done an interview for team Acer of Nerchio, in which the European zerg talks about his DreamHack top 8 finish from the group stages to the quarterfinals and beyond.
The interview can be found here: http://www.aceresport.com/uk/content/131.htm
Really pumped for this weekend’s UK Nationals WCS finals - players like Demuslim and Bling are going to be there, not to mention TASTOSIS. It’ll be my first live event, and even though I can’t make the finals Sunday, looking forward to it and will make a post about it after the event :>
Tickets are no longer available but if you’re feeling lucky and live in the area - here are the details http://www.esl.eu/uk/blizzardsc2nationals/news/191444/
Catching up on last night’s NASL Playoffs, so sad Demuslim lost to ret 3:2 D: I’m not gay, but Ben’s one dapper looking chap. And my god his TvZ scares me when he ladders
Never gets un-inspirational <3 MORE GG MORE SKILL
(sickest nerd chills :D)
Bahahaha, so 2GD (runs the GD studio, all round trollmaster, and from near where I live [https://twitter.com/#!/follow2GD]) Made dApollo an overlay… it’s beautiful <3
I had Jamesbro (Demsale) round today, and smurfing on a mutual friend of ours’ silver account… Man but looking back those were fun days. It almost feels bad A-moving your 150 supply army into their 50 some supply base, with an adorable, just established natural. Almost.
In other news, I should really stop smurfing and actually go get that Master’s rank, so I can get… dun dun dun….
the handsome nerd T-Shirt that I so desire ._.
So I watched Liquid Rising - as should you all - the brand new documentary about Team Liquid (http://www.teamliquid.net/)
The interviews were pretty great and gave a deep insight into both the player’s thoughts, and those of the community surrounding them, but I didn’t really get a sense of… the direction of the documentary?
Still well worth a watch if you have an hour and a half, and though it’s free, optional donations of $5 and up come with free TL posters etc
Also Her0’s KorEnglish is adorable
So I never really got this whole blogging thing off to a start with SCHOOL and whatnot, but now that my exams are over and such maybe it’s time for another shot.
In other news, a game of SC2 I played against my good friend James got casted by the fine duo at LAGTV, and even though I lost the game they chose to cast (though I won the best of 9 5:3 :D) there’s a delightful ego trip in having 20k views and only a pixel of red on the likes/dislikes.
I’M BACK, BABY.
