Five Ways To Lose Like A Winner in eSports

Tutorial Central got me with his third tip of his recent video, which is about losing gloriously in StarCraft II and other competitive games.

Flying this low always makes me nervous - that's what the Battlecruiser's captain from StarCraft II would say while looking at this pic. Luckily it's just an authentic Kerbal Space Program replica. Nothing can go wrong, right? Right? » 9/05/14 8:30am 9/05/14 8:30am
