When I wrote in the first line that a small dream had come true recently, I am referring to the fact that this Saturday, Jan. 8th at 6 pm, we'll be having the first Guam Starcraft 2 League taking place. I started playing SC2 just to support my brother who loved watching SC1 games and became very good at SC2. But I was disappointed when the game came out last summer but I wasn't finding alot of people on island playing it. I'm glad that the league is taking place to gauge how much interest is out there and also to see if there's people who can help my brother train to get better.
The link for the website is http://www.gusc2.com/, but, but I'll paste bits and pieces of it here.
The schedule with some information on the type of tournament is below

The league is not just for really really ridiculously good players, but for players of all skill levels who want to meet others who enjoy Starcraft 2 and want to try out their skills or various varieties of cheese against each other. Although I think I'm okay at SC2, I don't have any illusions that I'll do very well. My APM hovers around 30, and sometimes by some divine miracle where Muhammad, Moses, Jesus Christ, Buddha and Steven Speilberg get together and bless my fingers, I can get my Actions Per Minute up to an average of 50. When I watch professional players and even my brother play, this means that in comparision I play Starcraft 2 at the level of an elephant trying to use chopsticks to pick up mandarin orange pieces. Ti gof maolek, ya mampos gof ti chaddek.
But I think it'll still be fun, and I started this blog to meet more people from Guam and more Chamorros who enjoy Starcraft 2.
I've already told my brother that if I fight against him in the tournament he has to lose on purpose and make it look real!
