    Starcraft II weekend of play / tutoring

    Hello everyone! I'll be back from Asia NOW. After a long three months of no-gaming. As promised I'd really like to organise some Starcraft II matches and playing, and what better time to get it kicked off than this weekend!

    We can play as teams together, do versus against each other or do training or tutoring together.

    We'll be on the "RockPaperShotgun" battlenet channel and I'll keep this post updated with player IDs (please submit below).

    I plan to spend as much of the weekend online as possible if I can manage to keep my relatives away from me. I'll be more than up for helping out any beginners, although I will be very rusty. I'd appreciate tutoring myself if any plat/diamond players were willing to hand it out.

    People playing this weekend:

    HexagonalB / 596 (< that's me!) - Protoss, sometimes Zerg
    Sassenach / 492 - Zerg
    Dragosani / 245 - Protoss
    Krans / 960 - Protoss
    Bogart / 352
    FeralFerret / 886 - Protoss
    CreepingDeth/870

    Other RPS SC2 players:

    StormTec/605
    Malous/691

    Count me in (Protoss, Bronze)! I'm particularly keen to get some coaching/practice vs. Zerg. ;-)

    Also, you should all definitely participate in this survey!

    Gold Protoss here, who is happy to be added by RPSers and messaged if you fancy a friendly game. Name is FeralFerret, but can't remember my number at the moment. I'll add it to the thread later tonight.

    I believe I've added a few of you before, but don't believe I've played too many games with anyone (can actually only recall one!) I do have a real world Starcraft bud I normally play with, but I do occasionally go on for some 1v1 sessions. I'll remember to log in to the chat channel when I grow bored of laddering (also known as losing.)

    Argh, I'd love to join, but I'm on the NA server. I'm a platinum Toss, although recently I've been off-racing as Zerg.

    Name of Sassenach, code 429. I know Hexagonal and Vandelay already, would be pleased to get involved in some crafting of stars.

    Excellent stuff! I'm back now so I'll get online and edit everyone's names in to the first post.

    Remember to go in the "RockPaperShotgun" battlenet channel!

    I'm on as 'HexagonalB' and my code is 596. I have no idea what my skill level will be because I've been away and haven't been able to play in so long, I'd guess at somewhere around the gold level.

    Yep, we're having lots of fun. :D

    Had some great fun 4v4 with Krans, Sassenach and Vandelay, ultimately our bumbling, messing around and dreadful resource management got the better of us and we were placed in the silver league which is pretty hilarious considering our individual rankings. There are plenty of other people on the channel as well so come and join in if you're reading! I'm taking a recovery break for a couple hours (2 hours of sleep... in three days...) but then I will be back on with a passion this evening and the rest of the weekend.

    I felt like I was playing particularly badly, so apologies to all involved. I definitely shouldn't have strayed from my usual Protoss.

    Vandelay you were great! My economy was hilarious... We played some more matches later and I've warmed up much more now, more tomorrow?

    Just a heads up, I changed my name to CreepingDeth because atleast that way it reads correctly... character limits, my achilles heel!

    Still Protoss, still bronze, still kinda suck :)

    Despite my terrible, terrible micro, hexagonalbolts and I managed to win 3/5 placement matches and get placed in gold 2v2, woo. I've learnt a lot this weekend, and hopefully I'll be able to get out of Bronze 1v1 soon... :)
