I am KalurO, from the netherlands.
I have a pretty wide history of gaming. I had been playing warcraft III at a very competitive level. I first played orc but later switched to night elves. I found that night elves more suited my intense micro addiction and had widened up a bigger arsenal to more revolve around my playstyle.
After a long period of a few years, I slowly let go of warcraft III, as life was requiring more of my attention.
Now after finally having calmed down in life, and having more spare time - I picked up starcraft 2. I bought the game back in July 2011. I had never heard of starcraft before, didn't know what terran, zerg, let alone protoss was.
When I first started playing, I was used to putting 5 workers mining and a few on wood chopping, to just assault the enemy with a few minor units + a hero, to hopefully micro your way to victory.
Well, was I in for a treat. Instead of a micro-RTS, starcraft 2 turned out to be a macro-RTS. All that I learned in my wc3 time, was out the window.
I didn't have much time to play, I had a relationship and a job that required at least 50 to 60 hours of my time, a week. I also do bodybuilding, which means eating (+cooking) 6 big meals a day and working out 4 times a week. So I couldn't quite fully devote to starcraft 2. Hell, not even moderately.
I climbed up from bronze to silver, to platinum (Where did gold go , it skipped me..) to diamond and masters. This season I had to quit my job sadly but am now able to fully devote my time to starcraft 2. I am both masters on NA as EU.
Race played: Zerg
Favourite unit: The zergling
Favourite playstyle: Double upgraded zerglings

Leagues: Masters league on both NA as EU
I decided to pick up zerg, I liked the mechanics and active playstyle. Protoss felt too turtly and terran didn't interest me at all, after having played the campaign.
I managed to go from platinum to masters by going for double upgrade lings, infestor, ultralisks. I never built a single broodlord thus far.
Versus terran mech I just roach drop, versus protoss I tend to be very aggressive with roach/ling or muta.
I am slowly creating my own playstyle, planning on staying far far away from "metagaming". I am a big believer in developping your own play rather than copying everything.
I can now devote a lot of time to starcraft 2 since I am jobless at the moment.
My goal is to reach high masters with my own playstyle and to eventually get into a good team. Maybe get my name out there, but I'm not going to go too quickly on things.
I have been bodybuilding since I was 17 years old, I am currently 23 years old.
I went from 66kg (145 LBS) to 92kg (202 LBS), at a height of 1m95, 6'5".
You can also drop bodybuilding related questions here or on my stream (Eitiher about strength training, anatomy or nutrition), I'd love to answer them ;-).
