Yeah, I’m going to bang this drum again.

This is a video of Winter studying this specific professional game of Starcraft 2 — Serral vs. Special.

What does this have to do with magic?

Well…

Choose any magician you admire, doing your favourite magic of theirs.

When was the last time you could break it down the same way Winter can break this down?

I’m not even sure I can answer that question in a way that makes me happy. I can probably think of only a couple of magicians who could.

And keep in mind, this is a friggin’ video game.

And if that isn’t enough, go straight to the end of the video, where people who are watching it ask questions about some of the advanced stuff in his commentary of the game.

Go to any magic forum and you’ll be hard-pressed to see this level of interest in learning. You’ll see some interest, but not this level.

And this is a friggin’ video game!!!
