Korean streamers are unwatchable on twitch

I can’t judge Starcraft II gameplay which is everything good but in fact many korean progamers had been playing this game for many years but their English pronunciations are very bad on twitch. I had a weird happen from some random korean teammates they tried to steal my Starcraft friends as I felt shocked. I repeat the first paragraph again “StarCraft II gameplay is good” but community is super poor. I’m also wondering how korean teammates could keep playing with USA/Canadian gamers either every day? Bruh, just Grandmaster/Master league is a joke for reason, for me master still not accepted from decent USA/Canadian/German gamers? My final conclusion is giving a bad rate of 1/5, thank you very much. Keep sc2 community gonna be low, no one cares. Cause all real life people can’t understand korean streamers spoke bad English pronunciation on twitch, it’s definitely fact, not surprised.

A very noggin straining game

I've played Starcraft on and off ever since my childhood. That does not mean I am good at it, far from it actually. Strategy and micromanagement are key to success in this game. Every time I spend significant time playing I get mentally exhausted. It is very fun to play with friends regardless of the steep learning curve. Good online community for the most part, I've only been sworn at for a stupid move once or twice. There is a fair bit of gore. Human and aliens die in several gruesome ways. Explosions, blood, bodies sometimes fall apart in slabs after being sliced with laser blades of sorts or big dinosaur turk-like blades, etc... Pretty awesome. Usually you're too distracted with the micromanagement to take in every detail of the mass destruction. Campaign wise? There is some swearing although unfrequent. The Protoss tend to speak in a dignified manner.

Great messages
Great role models
