So we feel like there's not really a good community that focusses specifically on the Gold/Platinum level player. I've been in platinum league myself for a while and sure maybe if I wasn't so scared of the ladder I'd be diamond but my current of absence of high rank is of no concern here. We know there are many groups and discords and youtube channels like Pig's, Lowko's & TTP to name a few but they have a very wide range of players and they are not specifically focussed on the idea we have in mind. We'd like to zoom in on this more fragile group of players who could benefit greatly from just 1 coaching session.
The idea is simply to create an environment where this level of player does not have to feel scared of the ladder anymore and finally break into Diamond or even higher. We know from experience that it's quite a lonely journey and it can be hard to get in touch with people. We feel that at this level it is more important to improve your general skill and mechanics to a point at which you will automatically start promoting. We're not talking about getting your build orders down to a "to the second" precise timing like might be neccesary in Masters - GM.
This still does not have much to do with that you have to hit a timing of exactly 7:30. Because we feel that to get to that point it becomes a bit too overwhelming for the Gold/Platinum player. This is the league where you have to start becoming a bit more serious and have some idea of a build order. But it is still much more important that you actually macro well and try not to miss an inject or chrono boost or have production facilities not producing marines to give some examples.
We want to create a place where it is possible to learn these mechanics together without too much pressure. And it will be more about what went right and what went wrong. And not so much.. but you SHOULD HAVE had x amount of marines at X:XX timing. Or that you spent 100 mineral too much on a spore crawler
The goal is to keep things fairly simple and just improve your general gameplay but also just to have more fun in the game!
To achieve these goals we currently provide:
- Free coaching
- 1v1 practise channels
- Weekly peepmodes
- Strategy channels
- Information sources
- A place to vent all your frustrations
For example we take a look at:
- Your openings vs the different races
- Improving your macro
- Taking a look at your mechanics (hotkey usages, camera locations, rapid fire, control group usage)
- Scouting and map presence
- Unit compositions
- Making the right decisions
- We take a look at how you take offensive and defensive engagements
So to keep things short
This is the Discord
We hope some of you will join, or refer to this discord.
If you have any pointers/critique or advice we're open to all. It is after all for the benefit of the Starcraft 2 community and therefore how could we not listen to what you have to say.

Fyi, feel free to add me on either battle.net or discord.
I'm on EU but I feel like region is of lesser importance in the bigger picture of this community we'd like to create.
