how long did it take all you people to get glad

As of now it's just a matter of playing a decent comp with good and friendly partners and glad is always in reach. I feel my play is improving slightly every week in various aspects such as awareness, individual button pressing, synchronising your play with partners, strategies and so on.
More wants more, so r1 is obviously the next goal, be it 3s or 5s.
That was my short story. Good luck with your goal.

A lot of people seem to think that you train in the woods and then come out and go get Gladiator rating. The way a lot of people get their first title is by keep trying and actively try to play their comp better and then at some point they get the rating. Then once you get the title everything's different and you start to see everything from a different PoV. A lot of things 'Glads' do is very logical but people just don't really use their brain I guess.
Switching to people in the open makes sense for example but a lot of people just tunnel or don't see it when someone is in a good position to switch to. Predicting things also makes a lot of sense since you would do the same thing if you were in the other team but people often don't even try to predict anything.

increasing your gameplay is a process which takes a lot of time and effort. To do so you need the correct mindset - try to listen to day9 while he talks, hes really inspirational. I heard this video for the first time today, and I have no clue about starcraft, but a lot of his point of veiws on gaming is spot on I think, atleast most of it. Obviously some of the things he talks about is irrelevant, but it's still an entertaining video.
