StarCraft II Legacy of the Void Multiplayer

Ugh.  So.  I tried to get back into StarCraft II multiplayer after playing through the single player campaign the other week.  While I was immediately able to throw myself back into that single player campaign it was really hard to get back into multiplayer.

I basically failed to get into it.

I was placed in Bronze league and I lost a lot.  Bronze should be the easiest league in multiplayer with the newest and worst players.  I think at this point there aren't really any new players.  Bronze league was a great place to learn the game back in 2010 when it first came out but now the people there will tear a newbie apart.

I'm sure I could buckle down, look up some current strategies, check out a few guides, and work my way back into StarCraft II multiplayer.  But I don't really want to.  That's a lot of work for something that doesn't seem very rewarding for me these days.

I still think StarCraft II is the best RTS game out there right now, but if you aren't already deep into the competitive multiplayer it's not worth it to attempt.

There is a new archon mode which lets two players control the same units.  That's novel, but doesn't add much.

The co-op mode is fascinating.  You're given a hero with specific special skills and a limited army and then asked to accomplish tasks.  There's not a ton of variety in that mode though.  There are only about 6 maps and after playing each one once you've essentially seen the entire mode.

I really respect StarCraft II as an amazing RTS.  It's an amazing game.  But outside of the single player campaigns it's just not a game for me anymore.
