A day well spent

Phew, what a day! I should remember not to overload my mind with the information I should know and learn about sc2 all at once. I should take my time and work the things I'm about to learn but where is the patience? Well, I think that's ok for now as long I'm having fun.

I started my day by watching some GSL matches from Code A. Great games and got a lot of good ideas from there. Although I miss the Tastosis, the great casting duo of Tasteless and Artosis.

After that it was time to go practise against AI. I beat normal easily, hard almost every time but the very hard gives me hard times. I know, what is the point playing against cheating computer? I should go laddering but I just want to learn a bit more before that. My competetive side is messing with my mind. Luckily I got few tips and found the more realistic AI. This Fyn AI is way better and does things that normal players would do. You really should try beating this if you want good practise. You can find these by searching maps with the word "fyn." Check the Fyn AI topic also on TeamLiquid

I also watched some tutorials how to do cannon rushes, 2 gate rushes and how to stop 6 pool but I have to work on those quite alot more. Time to go grab some sleep so I manage to wake up early to watch Huk fighting in Code S.

Me, myself and AI

I really have to start playing and learn the units, maps, keys and builds. I know that I don't want to just start the 1vs1 league with zero knowledge and experience, so those games are out of the question. I want to know more about the game and know what I'm doing or what I suppose to do in certain situations. Too bad I don't have any friends whose are about to start the SC2 from the scratch. All my friends already have played quite a while and much more experienced in league games than me. I do get a lot of great tips and learn good tricks, but when we tried 1vs1 game I was beaten up so badly I didn't even know what happened.

So, I tried to start the campaign but I hate the fact that I would have to mostly play it with Terrains. Not something im too happy about when I suppose to learn the gameplay of Protoss. Lets forget the campaign and start learning the stuff in 1vs1 games against the AI. There are six levels of AI script difficulty: very easy, easy, medium, hard, very hard and insane. The easiest is good to start with. You have enough time and space to learn the basics. I was surprised how fast I managed to learn the basics and try the Easy AI. I know it's really easy for almoust every one but still - I am total noob in this.
