"OHHH YESS!" This was off the back of me defending the "dumbass" build (15 hatch fake expand speedling allin) for a solid 5 minutes - barely hanging on by the skin of my teeth!
The game got to a point where there was no possible way to watch everything at once and have a clear line of priorities. Should I focus on defence or offence? Should i micro my banes at home or on the front?
Whilst queing up actions and bouncing back and forth helped me manage both situations, in the end it was instincts and focused effort under pressure that got me through in one piece.
When the game gets messy good habits and strong mechanics shine through - however you also need a clear head and comfort in the chaos. You have to accept you're in a scrappy fight where it isn't as clinical and pre-planned as a normal game. You have to be willing to hand over control to your instincts and habits and let your well practiced hands do their work. You need to stay calm in the face of big mistakes and recognise they're inevitable from both you AND your opponent. The real killer in these spots is often the frustration and panic at the imperfect execution.
Accept the scrappy nature of the situation, don't expect perfect play from yourself and embrace the chaos!
I went on Fox News with @DanaPerino to talk about how video games don't cause real life violence, why this only happens here in America despite gaming and esports played worldwide, and why mainstream media needs to get it right #VideogamesAreNotToBlame
