Maybe the title is a tad misleading, but I wanna know - cause I wanna a big fan of LotR in SC1 - did any SC1 LotRish pros, get to like high diamond or master? I think it'd be really cool to have someone who knows both LotRish really, and league really well.
For those who don't know, LotRish is a really competitive BW UMS genre, in SC2 we usually chill in the chat channel "lotr", where we play War of the Ring, Post LotR, Rise of Sauron, Pre LotR, stuff like that(Those are a few of my favorites, but there are others). LotR is hero based but includes spawn armies, which spawn from bases. If a base dies, units of that base stop spawning. There's a lot to it, and you'd be surprised how much an effect spellcaster hero units like Defilers, can affect melee hero units like zealots, or ranged hero units like hydralisks. Stuff like that.
Still the question remains, are there any pro LotRish players who went pro sc2?
-.- I played LotR and it wasnt a 'really competitve" UMS game, Diplomacy 7.7/Desert Storm were, they actually had prize pools and such, but I played it once or twice and I am ranked somewhere in the 20's master league. 21-19 400-450 pts

I used to play SOG and Helms Deep(hailder not annatar) a lot. Than I moved to Heavens last stand before going to sc2. I'm top 200 masters in NA now. We should bring back the BW version of heavens last stand back that was so much fun.

There is a SC2 version, but I don't really like it. You really learn to appreciate the mapmaking work that went into the original.

u know alot of wc3 maps in wc3... just felt right. DotA felt right, alot of custom games felt right based on the environment and models. Although sc2 is Superior in terms of graphics.... it just doesnt feel as right. If anything, i rather go back wc3 just to play custom games and play sc2 for ladder only.
