Flaws in American Competition

I don't believe you need personal experience in order to criticize American teams. I won't pretend to be a God, I am what most would consider a bad player. Although my biggest problem is playing to much. I'll win 10 games in a row and then loose 15 straight for lack of enthusiasm. I lack persistence in my concentration, although to me it's just a game.

I love this game, I enjoy spectating almost more so then playing. What I don't understand about our scene, is how unprofessional our professionals are. This isn't soccer guys, Americans don't have the excuse of not being "into" video games.

Something needs to give. I won't pretend to know where the problem is, although some are obvious. Americans would rather play, then learn from watching real competitors. It is glaringly obvious at worlds, as we can't seem to take one game from Asia.

It is so much more enjoyable watching Asian teams. Our scene will suffer from our indifference, not many kids will tune in too see Uzi shred through our favorite players like Godzilla on Hollywood Blvd. I love watching those piss ants served up some humble pie. Although at the same time we share in the embarrassment.

HotshotGG is the peak example of our national identity in Esports. All the talent in the world, but he's streaming streaming Sims 3 at the moment.

Problem? It's called freedom. If the South Koreans not being allowed by their sponsors etc. to have a girlfriend is "srs e-sports" I want nothing to do with it, if he wants to have fun on the sims 3 more power to him. NA is doing fine.
