ay gretorp ive been wondering what the time is when you start ur s-port. itd help alot ty2010-09-28 11:32
Been following your stream for a while, Gretorp, and I'm a streamer and somewhat capable gamer myself, but I just NEED to get better. Hope you will help me.
The big goal for me is to rise from where I am now (1300 diamond) to being like a 'great' player. Not pro by any standard, cause I will not reach that level. If I could somehow improve enough to do decently in bigger tournaments, that would be my ultimate SC2-related goal, and I feel like a player that's just downright above my level is juuust the thing I need to get me there (surprise!).
So basically I would use this opportunity to play with you and discuss the games afterwards, as I know you yourself have a tendency to be critical of your own games, and therefore quite analytical in your approach to SC. I think I could also benefit from this to a great extent, as I tend to be very self-critical but just not good enough to really identify the areas that need work the most. And this would mean a lot, since I'm so invested in Starcraft at this point!
I definitely hope you will pick me out of this aspiring bunch, as I'm certainly the one who will appreciate it the most :D2010-09-25 23:16
Hello handsome man,
First of all thanks for all the great help you have been doing for the community :D, myself and everyone appreciates it much.
I feel like with your guidance more of my potential can be unlocked. I have been trying more to get into the tournament scene, and am registered in this years CSL. My results in tournaments that I have registered in have been in the top 16, and I am becoming more and more dedicated to this game as a whole. I don't have many people to train with that are my level, so it is hard to tell if I am improving or not, and how I stack up compared to the best.
Coming from the competitive BW scene from 2004, I would really enjoy to be able to compete with top players from today's current scene in SC2 as there is no better feeling then playing with the top. Being a fast learner, your training could help me realize this goal. We both look to the game in the same fashion with similar style so it would make the experience that much better.
Hope your doing well,
-Your Canadian friend, Nick2010-09-24 08:11
Gretorp! This is wilson from your Q&A :P
I want to show you how did the 30 single player game training everyday pay off :)2010-09-24 07:08
Hmmmm well don't have much to say have zero tourney experience kinda do not feel like i am ready to play in anything yet. I am a former age of empires player that switched over to starcraft 2. I have never played starcraft 1.
. Good luck with all your winning and awesomeness yours truly the Dumb Arse of Canada2010-09-23 04:51
Thanks for streaming to the masses and sharing a Q&A with us. From one handsome terran user to another, I would strangle a puma with my bare hands to train with you because:
1. I’m a college student registered in the CSL, so not only do I want to be stronger to perform well in matches, but I also wish to help strengthen team mates while creating more interest in the game from students on campus.
2. I play nearly every day, and am constantly pushing myself to be a more robust/intelligent player, so this training would benefit me heavily, and I wouldn’t be wasting your time.
3. We both frequently ladder in our boxers! What of it?
4. With your coaching I would be able to make it into the double rainbow league. It might even start to look like the triple rainbow league.
If we embark on this epic 1 hour adventure together atop majestic translucent steeds, I promise to adopt the policy of shouting Yahtzee every time my match arrives at a critical point where bopping a clown is imminent. Thanks again.2010-09-22 00:08

Here's the reason I'd like to win this competition I've been a fan of your play style and your thought progress when developing your builds although I don't play terran. And I think having a training session with you would allow me to develop further as a player I am currently a high diamond player and I think getting to play with a pro would be a great step in my progress since I find that ladder games don't let me develop that much anymore.2010-09-21 18:03
Oh my goodness, a Gretorp training session would be spectacular. I've been watching your stream since you started in Brood War and I learned so much about starcraft from your amazing commentating skills. You were always the most helpful person to watch especially for the d level Terran player I was. After learning a few things and after messing around with your 10/10/10 build I actually felt comfortable in tvp! I use to watch your stream archives before going to sleep because I was such a big fan.
No for me I'm a 800 ish diamond level zerg. Not very good but I'm trying to get better. At the moment I seem to have a lot of trouble with terrans. I always feel uncomfortable in this match up. Always. And not just due to Reaper shenanigans or anything like that, but just in general I rarely feel like I can control the flow of the game.
But yeah you are one of my favorite players and probably the only person I watch stream consistently. Whoever you choose is super amazing lucky and thank you for just being the amazing fellow you are :D2010-09-21 17:41
Damn yo, I'm really not as awesome as some of the dudes posting here. I main terran and I'm chilling in the Platinum league fist pumping my way up slowly. I kinda watch your stream all the time and since the JustinTV videos posted on youtube of MLG, you're probably the most badass progamer around.
To seal the deal:
So I'm on teamliquid checking out the thread
And I happen to see a title that blows me off my bed.
Gretorp training noobs? I thought it to be impossible
But it turns out I just have to get through this obstacle.
His 5 marine, 2 hellion and bashee push
Will surely set you back enough for his next ambush.
Bioballing, seige tanks into BC's
Soon enough you'll hear him yelling YAHTZEE!
Getting an hour with this beast would be a dream come true
Breaking the builds down to the basics so they stick like glue.
I hope this freestyle helps you make your decision
Because I see you and me as part of my vision!
From one handsome nerd smasher to another, you should pick me. Im a budding terran player (diamond 1300+) with good theory and understanding of the game but need help working out the kinks in my builds.
Lets bop some clowns together2010-09-21 13:01
Awesome stream, cant wait till you start casting just tell me where to sign up =)2010-09-21 03:21
ooohhh gretorp you are so handsome xD, i want to be training for you
Hey I've watched your stream for months and learned a lot, ur awesome. I'm Terran - My TvZ is solid(lol), but my TvP really needs work and i feel my macro/build orders are really bad so i'd really appreciate you picking me :D2010-09-21 03:16
I'm a fan because i want a massage, i hear they are amazing. Aswell because i think your TvT is incredible and feel my TvT is by and far my worst match up =(2010-09-20 22:06
can people like me playing like 1 years can always use some training xD2010-09-20 22:06
im a fan of u becuse all fnatics are the best :D
if u seen the vids of fnatic u can onley say WOW
I've been trying to get some practice for a long time but I just havent gotten the motivation to play for hours but I think with your help this would be possible, I also want to learn more cause of my Casting ive been doing several casts and gettin good response, but I just dont think I know enough and need to get help to push myself that extra bit to become one of the top players.
So it would be awesome to get help
sincerely Maven2010-09-19 22:16
I continue to come back to Gretorp channel whenever it is live on TL ( please stream more! ) because of his great game sense. He understands the game is more than Rock, Paper, Marauder, but requires an important game sense. I am really lacking that at the moment, that spidey sense. I hope you can teach me for an hour so that I can get a glimpse of it. IDK, maybe teaching a noob some game sense might make it more clear for you.
A Handsome Fan2010-09-19 22:07
Hi man. You should totally teach me, cause I am sure I am gonna learn sooo much. Can you imagine the satisfaction it's gonna get you ? ;)
