1) Hey John thanks for giving us this interview. To start things off could you tell us a little bit about yourself & your starcraft 2 strategy guide?
Well I started off playing the original Starcraft back in 8th Grade and I’ve been playing it ever since, so when I heard Starcraft 2 was
coming out I got my hands on a beta key and haven’t stopped playing it since. I wrote my guide to help players learn the fundamentals of the
game and how to become a good player in Starcraft 2. Just like in any sport you have to get the basics down first and then once you have
them down you build from there, which is what I try to do with my guide.
2) How did you initially get into starcraft? What experience do you have with the original and the newly released starcraft 2?
As I stated earlier I started playing the original when I was in 8th grade and I remember I used to take the Starcraft book that came
with the game to school everyday and study each unit and think of different play styles and build orders. My friends and I were consumed
by the game and we never really got out of it. Now that Starcraft 2 has come out we have just transitioned from the original to Starcraft
2 and what I love about it is that it feels really natural and a nice progression from the original game.
3) What is the backstory with the creation of Shokz Guide?
Since I was the one out of all my friends who would really study the game of Starcraft, I ended up always having to teach them things
and help them improve their game and APMs so I figured that I could write a guide to help players really understand how to play on a
competitive level and compete with Diamond level players.
