The title may be a bit misleading, but I honestly can't put together words for a clearer meaning. Perhaps you were thinking of the pre-game Jitters, or whatever idiom would fit there. But this is something else. My friends and I recently got into Warcraft 3. We're a bunch of high school nerds who used to play games like Doom and starcraft, because they were simple and easy to play online (and free, as long as one of us had the CD). Though with starcraft, I got more involved in the game as the rest, and now I'm playing on Iccup (3rd party ladder for starcraft, known for being super competitive). Anyway, I hate warcraft 3. I think it sucks, and feels like I'm playing with 4 units and... It just doesn't sit well with me. I'm not insulting the game, I just hate it. But I was telling my friend "I hate warcraft 3, but I would sooner play that than Starcraft." I really want to play starcraft, and get better (Currently 5-23 on ICCup), but I just can't bring myself to open the icon. Before this not wanting to play, I'd often spend 4 hours or more on battle.net. Is this fear? Intimidation? A not wanting to lose? Does it have anything to do with my self-esteem? Does anyone else get that way with anything?
