Computer Games Can Make You Rich

An article at the Wall Street Journal describes how a 24 year old “plays computer games all day, makes a six-figure income doing it and has thousands of adoring fans.”

Man oh man.

  1. I was ranked 648th in the world with very few losses at my peak, then I stopped playing starcraft. I picked it up again a few months ago and have been playing it off and on, my score is 23 wins, 2 losses.. I only got the losses because my partner disconnected and I didn’t feel like beating everything up myself. :P

    I’m not sure if I have 6 moves a second, though it’s probably 4-5. I started playing rise of nations, which actually tracks your APM (at least, I think it’s APM, there’s a “player speed” rating at the end, and the only thing I could think of that it meant is apm). My last game I remember playing last week was 260, though I’m far better at starcraft.

    So there you have it, if I were korean I’d be a god-like entity, maybe. Though I probably suck in korealand.
