Merry Christmas, Mr. Proberto
It's a tough life. You've got to take shit and give shit. Sometimes you give too much shit and something explodes inside you. Sometimes you take shit the wrong way and you have to take a few steps back so you can correct your course. This is what all things are like, and if they aren't worth it you back out and do something else.
Some things are worth it, though. Some things are just the only thing you have to take and give a shit about at all. In my opinion Brood War is the former. Nobody wants to feel like you're doing them a favour when they help you get into the community and learn the game and enjoy the scene. Some people even find it a little offensive. You will get shit, and if you don't have the charisma or attitude to persevere and keep going, you'll back out and lose something beautiful. You might even blame the fact that you have to go through so much shit to enjoy it, think that if it were so good it would be delivered to you on a silver platter. Problems with Windows 7? That's shit. Problems with BM members of the community? That's shit. Problems with catching up on the learning curve? That's shit. It's shit every single person has to go through to play this game. Want to find VODs, replays, and guides? Better learn how to use a computer and a search engine while you're at it. These days it’s so easy. Usually people will even gladly help you when you ask instead of spend your own time figuring things out. People who think it’s worth it figure it out for themselves.
How do you become fast? Become smart? Become skilled? Become quick with intelligent decisions? My friend, you go through shit. You go through it humbly, you learn from it, you become a better person. Don't be so entitled... Not everyone is gonna be nice in your life, and it's time you learned to catch a fish instead of just asking for it. You'll enjoy it so much more that way. It's nothing to be ashamed about, it's just life ;p
