Most of you already knew that if you are a low-mid master player, you can go grind a couple of games on WoL to get GM easily to unlock the GM achievement, the GM career icon in profile and career page, and a front profile page 1vs1 GM icon (with liberty written next to it). You can also chill in chat rooms with your GM border if you leave the game on WoL while chatting.
You also have bragging rights in the TL strategy forum where you can start all your posts with
"As a EU GM Protoss, I say that ...."
Some of you already knew that you could get the GM border on the loading screen as well for HotS team games if you are in a team with a partner and he launches the game while you are still in WoL.
But did you know that you could also get it in 1vs1 and have everyone treat you with the respect you deserve ???
Follow these easy steps for a life-time of HotS GM bliss.
- Start a 1vs1 game in HotS.
- Open your menu -> Gameplay and switch to WoL
- As soon as the game timer starts, click ok to switch.
- The game starts but you still have your crappy Master border
- Play the game
- Win like a bawss (or not ?)
- Hit the "Play Again" button !
- Enjoy your new Border !
Take screen shots and go brag on the interwebz.
Don't forget to thank Geiko for this awesome trick.
