But that's just it. I give it 100%. I read through articles, posts, and charts. I watch VODs, tournaments, and meta-game shows every day. I set up obs, get coaching from clanmates and helpers, and practice solo regularly. I've got builds memorized, understand engagements, rarely miss injects or creep spreads, and generally have great hands.
But none of it pays off. Maybe at a higher/pro level that I'll never reach without some innate talent.
I can read my opponent, scout well, macro perfectly, defend perfectly, but I can never attack, and I can never reap any real reward for knowing my opponent's plan (especially when it's most transparent) and playing smarter and harder than they do. There is no worse feeling than scouting and reading your opponent perfectly only to lose to them and see that not only did you read them, you were actually playing 4-5 times faster than they were too.
They just chose a race that was capable of producing some ridiculous deathball or drop with almost no consequences for doing so.
I understand it takes work, and that's what I love. But every ounce of work has to have some semblance of growth or reward, and it's just not there for Zerg. There is no correlation of ability and results. There isn't even any fun or satisfaction. It's just running around in circles.
Hopefully you guys get it right in a patch or Legacy of the Void, but I'm just too disgusted to keep this up.
