    Default Professional Starcraft Players...

    Just watch the first few seconds of this video:



    Apparently in South Korea, there are literally millions of people playing Starcraft but there are only 300 professional players. Obviously as you can see, the pros have got some real skills and it's just mind boggling that people can think/play that fast in a game.

    Starcraft is a legendary game!

    But that is just insane. I guess you get that level of dedication and awesome natural talent at the top 1% of anything, be it sport, gaming or anything else.

    Also apparently Starcraft is a national sport in Korea and they treat it pretty seriously

    I wonder if (and how much) he's getting paid to be THAT good at it?

    From what I've read, some of the top players make as much as $150,000 USD. Considering that the average South Korea annual salary is about $14,000, they are doing DAMN good even if they can only be doing this for a few years.

    Dear Satan,

    In reference to our earlier communication I am pleased to say that I am now ready to relinquish my soul for a 220k average in Candy Crush.
    Thanks in advance.

    That was pretty insane (as is everything at top level play).
    Does 300 apm mean 300 keystrokes per minute or truly 300 actions? cause 300 keystrokes per minute seems low.

    A quick glance at that this thread and attached videos has me scared, apparently this hobby is even more dorky that I guessed...eek, to be that obsessed seems frightening. Lets hope for their sake it's been profitable.
    "GAME ON!"
