How To Play Starcraft And Score Korean Chicks


Ever watched Starcraft tournaments and exclaimed to yourself, “Damn, those Koreans are good?” If you have, ByunTae from South Korea wants to teach you how to bring your mouse-and-keyboard gaming skills up to their level – for a price, of course.

While it’s difficult to verify credentials (on Craigslist, no less), the ad definitely is interesting. It’s pretty much the first one I’ve seen that directly offered up Korean breeding as a reason for being a trustworthy tutor. According to the offer, you’ll be getting your lessons from a guy “gifted with unparallel(ed) talent to master any video game, particularly, Starcraft: Brood Wars,” can do bunny hops without cheats in CounterStrike and, at one time, even posted a 170 kill-streak in the FPS.

Instruction will range from beginner to advanced, including lessons such as unit strategies, worker stacking, in-game bugs you can use to your advantage, cloaked zerglings and extreme skills, like being “able to stand off 12 zerglings with just 3 zealots or fend off 18 zealots with just 4 cannons.” The consultation will include Korean lessons, so you can start banging with the hardcore crowd online.

According to ByunTae, the lessons will net you faster actions-per-minute, a better win/loss ratio and the chance to make it in the star-studded South Korean gaming scene, resulting in Korean girls being “intrigued that you’re such a good Starcraft player.” Lessons aren’t cheap and range anywhere from $20 to $35 an hour. For the love of Korean girls and the adoration of millions of fans, though, it just might be worth it.
