I know there’s a thread about the reasons why people play the character they play, but the discussion is more on why they like the character. What I want to discuss here is how and why you came to your decision about choosing your top level character.
I was listening to something Pyrolee said in his video interview which was along the lines of “Pick one character and just learn them to their full potential. Then maybe move on to a second character.”
In a sense he’s right. In order to get good with a character you need to use them. The more of the time you spend playing the game using that character, the bigger the increase of your “ownage” factor will be.
When you sit back and think, it’s a big commitment. You already have the commitment of loving the game, but once you concider devotion to a single character, it makes you think of your efforts and look where it could be wasted.
But I also think it’s good to have a secondary character to fall back on, because once someone figures out your game you’re exposed even further. Of course this comes down to the fact if they can win or not, but that weakness is still there. But having another character can help with hiding your plans as you all know and can oftenly be the right choice.
But coming to the decision of picking one main guy just makes me look at all the other characters and think if the character I’m playing is infact the right one for me. So, how did you come to your decision? And did you have the same mind set of dedication as that?
