Any idea what league they are?
You should definitely check out some of his other videos where he "dual-casts" as alter egos. It's so good. Yeah, be sure to send in some 1's that you thought were good.

Finally got promoted to Platinum for 1's. Gold was such a joke, lol. Had over 600 points before I was promoted. Already in the top 8 for Platinum xP. Hopefully, I'll be in Diamond before the season is over. Might be able to pull off Masters for 2's, 3's, and 4's before the season is over too. Top Diamond for 2's and 3's right now and already Masters for 4's!

Nice, hope you're able to get to masters soon. Season ends beginning of September, so you still got another month =]

Btw, Patch 1.5 came out today, and seems like it broke a lot of the game, lol. A bunch of unit characteristics are off (cost/upgrades) amongst other things. For the most part it's alright though. Blizz completely redesigned the main menu UI, which is pretty nice imo.

Now we are cosmic friends forever, ok?

If you play through the single player first though then you really will understand the StarCraft 2 universe as the campaign is very long and offers so much.
Yep, totally agree. SC2 is awesome =]
Want to add me in game? I can coach you a bit and help you get out of bronze if you want xP

The Arcade has really made quite a few custom games very popular. Really glad to see macromicro games filling up in under a minute now. It used to be impossible finding a game that had anyone. So far, I've really only played monobattle, peep mode, and macromicro, since they're pretty much deviations of normal gameplay. Might check out some of the interesting custom games when I get a chance though. So many of them out there.

Season 8 ends tomorrow. Played a total of 470 games this season. Played 661 last season..was way too addicted to the game during those first two months. Still am. Definitely the best RTS I've ever played. Hope I can finish in top diamond for 1's next season! Getting better and better xP.

Season 8:

1's-top plat
2's-top diamond
3's-middle diamond
4's-low master

Whoa, congrats ^
Btw, how good are the people you face in team games (top diamonds/low masters ones)? Like in my 2v2 diamond league, my friend and I were usually facing people that were 1v1 golds, lol.
