Re: Master tag challenge thread

I'm planning to be active for the next few days/weeks and throughout the period I'd like to challenge as many master tier players as possible.
I started playing today and I think I need another 2-3 days of warming up to confidently take down my first opponents.
I'd like to set up matches in an increasingly difficult (for me) order.
(Quite sure I can take them on without much of a problem starting from next week Tuesday.)
(I'm very uncomfortable with playing Player. u8 has a great understanding of the game but I think after I'm warmed up speed will carry me through. Too bad I don't seem them play nowadays.)
(I've had a hard time with ST, because I'm inexperienced and have not seen anyone play alike him except for a lazy Swift before my 2 years break. However I believe I'm close to understanding his playstyle and will manage to figure out the way to win.)
(Even when rusty he is easily my toughest opponent and has always been aside from Swift. I need several games before I'll start to match him and later beat him.)
Viruz (if he comes back)
(Imo I match up very well with Viruz and playing him are my favorite and by far the most exhausting games. Once I get on fire I hope we'll make our games a sight to see.)
Then finally Swift.
(Personally I think he is the hardest player to beat. Given that I get my practice in the near future, I hope to become able to give him a challenge that he has not had in a long time. )
I prefer old gow ef (best of as many games as you can take) because I'm yet to master it, but if any of you want, we can make it an official master tag challenge or try different maps.
During most of the coming days, I'll try to get on around 4-5pm PST and stay on until there are good games left. If any of the mentioned players are down for matches, please let me know here or online. If you'd like to to play but at a different time I'm also open (Possibly Sg, Eu players). We could also provide Burnt with some quality content if we set up a serious series in advance or if he's around.
Players like Lux, Yamon, Knitt etc... are also welcome for some duels.
As a secondary objective, I want to stop sucking at 2s and maybe learn about other maps.
I hope some great players will derust and revive interest in competition soon, or perhaps weeks before the 1s tourney in July.
I've heard many people think I'm hacking for some reason. You are welcome to ask for warvids as it's on most of the time.
Lastly I'm going to make a new name after I'm ready to maintain a winning record vs most of the best players. I've been learning very quickly and I think I can do this (not sure how soon). Hopefully you'll give me the practice I need for the next level!
