Minns dig från dom gamla b.net broodwar dagarna. Terran, APM och fpvods. När ditt namn dök upp i SC2 scenen så hoppades jag få se dig klättra i listorna, senast jag såg var resultatet från WCS som du skriver om, olyckligt... Inte det slutet du tänkt dig men ändå, vilken upplevelse! Du gjorde det många av oss drömt om sedan vi såg koreanerna i OSL/MSL.
GL in da future merz.

i ve read jinro's good bye post too, and these too had too much in common in my opinion. what i figured out is that, both of them kind of touched/realized their dreams and it kind of lost its charm. meeting and playing in the same tournament with their legends such as nada and boxer, discussing strategies and such, used to be something unreachable, but once it is realized it lost its charm. that makes me think about that in other matters, life, gaming goals if it is better to have them as "dreams" rather than reaching them. cause that way u can enjoy dreaming about them and maybe even sharpen yourself on your way to trying to reach them. i am not saying be some kind of sisyphus, just suggesting/thinking that we might realize the dream when we are ready to chase an other one, cause it ll lose the charm anyway.
i personally still have that goal for me to watch a tournament live on the spot in which boxer himself takes place and go back stage and shake his hand after the tournament, congratulate him and thank him for all those awesome moments he created and made us experience. also if possible play a game vs him and have my ass handed to me so since he quit progaming this is something that will never happen, maybe i still can go watch him live when he is coaching but as i postpone this, it has good chance of being skipped. so my point is there should be a balance of chasing something u want ultimately and reaching it.
i ve never been a good sc player (bw or sc2) but loved the game deeply. always wanted to do something for the game and be a part of it. during the days of sc:bw i had the chance to be the turkish team leader and event manager in gg.net, and enjoyed it very much for a year or maybe a bit more. i think i can name myself succesful or at least not unsuccesful but at the end things started to lose their charm as i went on and at the end i had to quit both responsibilities due to non-gaming responsibilities. that again makes me take, touch your dream and be ready to lose its charm.
well i am just blabbering here so thx if u have made it here reading. just seeing merz and jinro quit and have similar reasons for it made me think those. i am not saying they both stopped bec of exactly the same reasons and their situations are same but there are similarities.
so gl merz in your uni studies and non gaming life. gg
manner > skill

Mate, you took the right decision and I think that is is important to make your thoughts public.
You show the kids here that someone can't just simply give up school or what ever in order to become a pro. There is a real life, if you want to face it or not. There will be a day when you have to pay your bills.
Good luck with your law school and enjoy SC2 in your spare time as much as you want!
