Hello folks ! Since I've been playing this game for a while now, I feel like I should stop being so rude and present myself.

In game I'm YeuYeu, a still slightly noobish zealot who plays for SPMz. IRL, I'm a french 22 year old history student. Although we do not get as much recognition for our nerdiness, I can assure you we are as qualified in that regard as math or informatics graduates :p.

Although I used to play a whole lot of video games, I've tended, over the past few years, to favor board games and MtG more. SC2 was probably the last real game that totally caught my attention and made me play for hours.

However, I only came to play ZH a few years after buying SC2. Indeed, I was first invested in laddering, starting in bronze to finally reach and plateau at platinum level as protoss. However, much like Doudles, I wasn't able to invest enough time or energy to improve or even keep up and, as HoTS came out, I simply stopped playing regular SC2.
It's at that point that I started playing Star Strikers, first as a change from ladder and then as my main game on SC2. In the end I must have played about 3 000 games and joined ISSC, DYM and finally WhiteL to play in leagues or tournaments.
It's through Mruniversum and a few others like Ariakan that I came to learn about ZH. The refined gameplay which consisted of only two units, against about 20-30 in strikers, and the ice that reminded me of War3 sliding games, immediately made me a fan. More than that, the community, open and nice, was an amazing change from strikers where pub and private were very compartmentalized. In the end, I played this more than strikers and I don't feel any need to stop after about 1400 games played. I hope I'll still be able to learn a lot from you all and get many more fun games, both in pub and priv :D

Post scriptum :

I just wanted to point out something that's been bothering me for a while now when I watch streams, wether it's here or in strikers. Noone gets how my name is pronounced xD

When I first played SC2, I was sharing my dad's account. When choosing a name, he chose the Nick he had on WoW (Yeuriël --> yeuyeu).
Some casters called me Yue (same e as elephant) or youyou but it's normally pronounced a little more like the french e in Je, Jeu, le

I know it's a little weird to complain about considering most casters are german or english but I just wanted to point it out :P

Hey Yeu!

You're not noobish, you're actually preety decent. Although I study math and informatics, I also like history alot. Probably that makes me a triple geek or something like that :D

Welcome to the forums and see you on the ice.

Welcome YeuYeu,
I think I remember you from Star Strikers. Actually, many players migrated from SS to ZH. Well, I was calling you smth like "YouYou" since I got no idea how to pronounce

You're a chill out guy, haven't see you bm even once, keep it up!

And i still don't understand how to pronounce this nick.
"the french e in Je, Jeu, le" = yleyle?, lele?, leyley?
It sounds fun in my language though so i will probably stick to it: YeooYeoo =)
