Thread: Riggnaros

    Riggnaros

    There's been a lot of people talking about this guy and how amazing he is. I haven't seen him play at all earlier (I'd rather watch sc2 than wow for entertainment:P) but going through some footage for Council of Elders (I was unable to get on the ptr for this test) I viewed this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAqRV3dxDUY . I guess I'm simply wondering why he's getting so much credit or why he's playing like this, considering that this video looks like a 12 year old randomly mashing the buttons that light up?

    And you decided to make a thread why?

    Since you watch Sc2: for the same reason people still give a shit about Incontrol.

    A combination of slightly drunk, bored and genuinely curious if there's any reason for the hype.

    Well I can see some players being mediocre even in top guilds/teams (even the worst of the competitive sc2 players are still amazing compared to the average player though), but this play is genuinly awful, and he's raidleading one of the best guilds in the world.

    Cuz apparently he knows his shit, he's good at what he does and his way of getting people to do their shit right is effective on the rest of the group.

    Personally, I can't take him seriously or respect him with how he leads, too big of an ass imo.
    "Reminds me of a dog, you stare at it while it's playing outside... Running around in a circle, then stopping up, wagging with a wide "grin". Jumping around until you call for the dog, then it lowers its tail because it think it's done something bad... And then you throw the ball, seeing the tail go straight into the air in bliss! ^^" - Gehco

    I'm honestly not a person to defend Riggnaros or BL in general, and I don't really know how it is for americans, but if you took one of my own plays on PTR they would be simply horrendous. The lag inherent to PTR makes me play completely terrible.
    Also, bad plays happen to everyone. Not saying he played bad on this vid, I didn't even watch and cba watching, but you can't expect people to be on their top level all the time.
