Hey Erpman, I started Starcraft 2 as soon as it was released. I struggled and struggled as much as I could and eventually just quit. Upon recently, I've been getting interested in the game again and I can't devote a lot of time just yet. So I'd mainly like to add you on Skype I guess but I probably wont be able to play for awhile. I'd just like to throw myself into the "very interested' category. Keep me in reserves for coaching and what not. As a Protoss player, I 4gated Stalkers a lot, I remember that. Protoss is easily my favorite faction, so I'd like to get into this again. Thanks!
That is great erpman!

You have my utmost respect. Seriously. What you are doing is fantastic!

Props/kudos to you.
Just so everyone knows, a couple things here,

I've had a LOT LOT LOT more responses both on this thread, and on skype, than I ever imagined I would.

I really do try to respond to everyone and give you some time, but between the 20+ people messaging me, and me trying to still have my time to play other games, and sit around watching TV with a bag o' potato chips on my lap... it is tough, lol.

I know there have been a few people that I have forgotten about, and first I'd just want to say I'm sorry for that, if you are one of those people.

Just please be patient with me if you message me, and feel free to send multiple messages, because there is a good chance I simply had 5 other things going on when you tried, and simply forgot.

Sure thing, just add me and let me know.
Hey all. Past month or 2 has been a really busy hectic one. I had some family issues that I needed to take care of.

This meant me not being around on the forums or on Skype.

But I am back now!!!

Anyone that is still looking for some coaching, let me know!

My HoTS specific knowledge is kinda sketchy at the moment, but the mechanics are the same. Which is where the vast majority of my coaching focuses on. So let me know if you could use some help!!!
I just added you in my friend list;). I have that same goal to reach master. I'd be more than please to receive coaching from you
;)
If you're willing, I could probably use some help. I'm pretty sick of being forever Plat, and while I can always spot mistakes in my play, it's quite possible I'm not prioritizing well in what to address. So if you're offering... :)

Plat was by far the most difficult league for me to get out of as well. The jump from Plat/Diamond just felt sooo big, much more than the jump from DIA/Masters. So don't feel bad for that one at all.

Also it sounds like you watch your own replays, which is also a VERY good start. I'm sure we can get you into DIA in no time :-)

****Also, not sure if I mentioned this in my OP, but something to keep in mind. My personal playstyle focuses heavily on Macro. I prefer to outplay my opponent in a longer fight, rather than having it decided on a single All-In.

This means my coaching also heavily focuses on Macro, and less on build orders/all-ins. I firmly believe if you can Macro better than your opponent, and defend early pushes, you absolutely will win the vast majority of your games. Scouting + Macro = Win in my book.

This also means that the first few coaching sessions usually do not result in immediate results, but in the long run, I feel it will help you more than learning any build order ever could.

Awesome, thanks! I shoud be able to make it on-line. If I can't play, I'll let you know.

I've tried both ways, so if you're willing to help, I have no problem with focusing on a macro game.

Sure, why not!
Thanks for doing this with me! You definitely seem to have some talent as a coach. The game+replay session felt good, so hopefully with some more practice I'll see some more results!
I'm interested too. I'll add you tonight. Thanks
