For those of you who may or may not have been following my blogs lately, I got a big head for a while. I'm one of the casters for the ASL (Asia Starcraft League). A couple of times, I thought I was going to be famous. I thought I was going to achieve that long time dream of casting in Chinese in Shanghai.
But more recently, more specifically, what happened to me was I posted a blog here on TL.net with me casting a game between maximusblack and a clanmate of mine in Chinese. I went to matchday.cc and got in contact with the admins of the website recently on QQ. Finally, I uploaded some of my casts to youku.com and realized, too late, that the Chinese I was speaking and learning in respect to starcraft, was simply too Taiwan-specific.
I asked the admin, "Do you guys need a foreigner that can cast in Chinese?" he said, basically, "I've seen your Chinese cast... it's pretty good but it's not 正規 enough." Here I am again... unfortunately being, I feel, somewhat naive.
For those of you who don't follow, this is me talking about becoming a Chinese caster for the WCS. I'm a bit down-hearted, but they did say they would ask the admins of WCS if they needed a foreigner to cast in English. I doubt I would get it... but they'll know for sure who I am simply because I cast for the ASL.
Let it be known, that today, October 5th 2012, is the day that I begin to live and commit every day of my life to learning to speak better Chinese and be a better gamer at starcraft. I'm still young. I still have a shot at this.
