This will be my last blog post here.
I just kind of wanna get this first bit out of the way. The members of the Aspire program that left are not off crying in a corner, about how their division got cut. The Aspire division left vVv, to start our own program, and potentially join another. We're not just holding a little pity party. Just wanted to get that out of the way.
As many of you know, the SC2 division for vVv gaming is no more. I have been extremely vocal in the actual thread her
I tilted for the frist time in almost 2 months. I've been kind of sticking to the "Train smart, not harder" mentality for the last few weeks, playing around 15 games a day, as well as breaking them up (playing 4-7 games, breaking, a few more games, breaking, etc etc) and it's been working pretty well thus far. Earlier today I had a session where I went 2-2, but I felt ok cause I won a really long TvP, which has been giving me trouble, so I was feel good. Then I started playing ag
Last week was kind of a trouble some week. I had a bunch of stuff to do at my Mom's house (getting the laundry done, making sure that the pipes wouldn't freeze, etc etc). I also wasn't feeling to well, and just felt kind of dumpy. I wasn't depressed or anything, just didn't feel quite as motivated as I usually do.
But today, I felt back to my normal self. Maybe it's got to do with the weather (it's been extremely cold here in Phoenix the last couple of days,and today was the
I said in the last blog that I'd write about the tournament I was playing in today. I was gonna do that, but I didn't play in it.
The reasoning behind this decision was based on two things: 1, I slept in a little later then I wanted to, but it still accommodated the tournament, and 2, I had to run up to my Moms house (I'm more or less taking care of it until it gets sold, she's pretty much completely relocated to San Diego, is going to school, and living with her boy friend
I'm currently listening to Engulf, Robo and Hap play 3v3's, so I might end up getting a bit off topic @_@
Anyways, it's been a while sense I've made a blog post, mostly because I haven't been play a WHOOOLE lot. I've still play 100 ladder games this season, and probably like another 50 customs between just straight up customs and obs games. Hap advised me to try working smarter, not harder, so I've been kind of taking that advice. I don't think I've had a day where I've play
I was gonna write a blog a few days ago about a new TvZ build order I was messing around with, but because Day9 did a daily about how good Roach/Hydra is, I haven't really been able to play it on ladder very much, so I have to wait and see where the metagame shifts to, and depending on that, I'll re-evaluate the validity of the build (also, FUCK YOU DAY9 ROACH/HYDRA IS ANNOYING AS BALLS TO PLAY AGAINST).
I started writing the aforementioned blog, and got distracted, and then Roach/Hydra was
I was about to go get some Tacos and a Burrito, but I decided I'd write a new blog post. I've intentionally not posted in here for a few weeks, because of everyone's been busy with the holidays (including myself). I haven't really been able to play a whole lot over the last week or so, because I'm still trying to get my sleep schedule back in order (which I think I've finally done), and both my Sister and Mom have been in town the last week, so I've been hanging out with them, le
I'm currently undertaking the challenge to get my sleep schedule back to normal. I woke up at like 6pm on Monday afternoon, and am determined to stay up till at least 9pm tonight. Part of this is because I have work tomorrow night starting at 6pm, but more importantly, my sister is coming back into town for the holiday, and I've made her bedroom sort of my work area. So if I'm asleep all day, and awake all night, I'll have to move all of my shit back into my bedroom, and then bac
So ya, I'll start with kinda what's been going on with me. I finished finals on Monday, and have been pretty much playing full time ever sense. I'm pretty close to hitting my average of 8 hours of playing/ 24 hours (my sleep schedule is sort of fucked up, so I'm going with how much I play every 24 hours), and I'm not really feeling any fatigue, so that's good .I'm already starting to reap the benefits of the amount of time I'm putting in. Before, I'd lose to Protoss and be at a l
My sleep schedule is sort of messed up. I took my last final today (which was literally a questionnaire about how we liked the class, what could have been better, but the school requires every professor gives an official final. I spent more time driving there, then I actually spent on campus, which was kind of silly. I felt super tire, so I took a nap. Instead of just taking an hour or two, I slept for like 5 hours, so I'm awake now xD. I wanted to ladder, but Blizzard decided to
So, I originally wrote this like a week after my first entry, but I screwed up, and deleted it like 4/5 the way through, and then I tried it again a few days a later, to the same result, and then hardware upgrade, which talk about a week longer then I wanted it to, and then I got super busy, and here we are now.
I last left off with pretty much me saying that I wanted to take next semester off from school to pursue Starcraft full time, but the only thing that was really keep
Hokey doods, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do this, but it's easier to ask for forgiveness then it is to ask for permission, so if I'm not suppose to write a blog, the Admins can just delete it, so here we go!
My name is Jared Scruggs, I'm a 20 year old Starcraft 2 player, and I'm a Masters Terran player on Aspire team #2. I decided to start writing a blog here, because I often times find myself just kid of sitting, leaning back in my chair and just kind of reflect on my life and compet
