Just an idea. How about the high platinum and diamond players coach the bronze and silver players and the masters and gm players coach exclusively the platinum/diamond players. It seems like a waste to have a high masters player tell someone to keep making workers. Just in my opinion.

What you are hoping to achieve:
I am relatively new to SC and have been watching the tournaments through live stream and thought it would be very fun to play at this high of a level. I want to get better, learn as many things as possible, and absorb as much knowledge and put it to use. I would want to represent Team Liquid someday, as you guys are my favorite team.
I am online are various times, and I will be on June 2nd and 3rd for a while.

Also someone who wouldn't mind being a good 1v1 practice friend once I get into the higher leagues.

The Swarm survives not because of mere numbers, but also because of its' ability to adapt to any environment. Become smarter, stronger, or faster based on what it needs to survive and decimate its' enemies.
--Reposting-- Tried to get coached as Zerg but i felt i wasn't consistant enough with them so back to Protoss -_- , a big thanks to PwFZypher for helping me as Zerg , he was able to pick out my weak points but I felt Z wasn't my thing. An excellent coach just the race didn't suit. --------------------------------

Name.Character Code: Cognition.834 Server: NA Race: Protoss League Bronze What you are hoping to achieve: Something that's not Bronze (Realistically Silver or Gold) Time you're free to learn: I'm always free (On my computer most of the day) Brief description about you: I'm a bronze Protoss. I got into Silver for 1 season I did well in Silver but I had stopped playing Starcraft to focus more on school. I'm 13. and somehow I get 50-60 APM in all my games :D I get mad at cheese.
Student --------------------- Name: Zeweig Character Code: 712 Server: EU Race: Zerg League: Platinum Hoping to achieve: I love the game, and I believe that it's the most interesting computer game that has ever existed, so I have decided to become #1 Masters, or GM some day! It's a though goal, but I'm an intelligent person and a quick learner, so I am hoping that with some help from fellow members of the community, to become better and better! I also want to be able to stream a lot, and be able to help people get better at this game! About Me: I am 17 years old, live in Sweden (speaks fluent english) and love gaming and playing the guitar. I have no problems with using any type of strategy (cheese, all-ins, macro games) and I don't get mad facing anything as I think of it as just another tactic. I am very self-critical and will see missing an inject for more than 1 second as a failure and something to improve on. Why do I want to get coached: I really want someone better than me to teach me the "flow" of a game much more than just a build order. Like: "what happens if he does this, or that?" and then help me take notes of all the things I should work on, and good ways to improve upon them. Free Time: This is the last week of school, so this week, from 7-11 pm CET, after this week, any time of the day!

What you are hoping to achieve: Learn to actually play and get better, and learn to truly understand
Time you're free to learn: I have a lot of free time since it's summer, especially in the afternoons like anytime after 12 my time
Brief description about you: I don't take well to being yelled at but I will try my hardest to listen. I play a lot but I'm still not very good, I've had my friends teach me but they didn't help much. My boyfriend bought me starcraft about a month ago, and I haven't learned much.. My account will say silver because one of my friends decided to BM and I got into gold and didn't win any 1v1's or anything really, then one of my other friends deranked me to silver and I'm winning some 1v1's now... So far I've won 4.

Paying 100 bucks to learn 3 builds you could have learned from a masters and even a diamond player is a waste of money. Yes, you are going to get personal advice from one of the best player in the world, but improving you play (mechanics, macro, micro, all that good stuff) is way more important than learning strategy (thing you can do by reading TL, streams, state of the game, day 9). Kcdc needs coach from a pro gamer to solve his problems with stephano's ZvP build, not some random gold league player. So I support this thread.
Coach from pro gamer is useless because in lower leagues you gotta learn mechanics, not strategy, and a masters~diamond player can help you with that. Plus you can make friends.
Hm I never saw someone smart enough to realize this until now ^^ People spend so much time focusing on strategies or builds or advice from pros when all they need to do is become a better player and work on mechanics not strategy. If you want to be good at basketball are you gonna focus on becoming a better athlete or accessories like nice shoes to wear? Your mechanics are your athletic ability, builds and strats are just accessories.
Coaching is absurdly priced by most, its just flat out not worth $100 / hour, ur basically just paying to get to hang out with someone you are a fan of maybe. You can get quality coaching for $10 - $20 hour from lower GM / high Master people who can help you just as much.
