Know the Feeling

Ah I've been there.  Was in silver when I started last year, got out of it and into gold.  I transitioned into the beta and now I'm stuck in bronze facing opponents way better than what I ran into in wings.

The others have already posted some nice things.  The only thing I'd add is that another person who has done some tutorial stuff is DignitasApollo, specifically his series where he starts in bronze and works up.  Probably won't tell you anything you don't know, but hearing it from another person said a different way can help.

If you have any friends that might want to play try to get them sucked into the game.  It helps *a ton* when you have people you can play with that aren't total strangers out to take your head off.  (I'd be happy to play some games with you too.  Doesn't have to be 1v1s either.  Send me a message and I'll shoot my info over to you.)

Also there are some games in the arcade, like monobattles, which offer a pressure free zone for practicing mechanics and probes/pylons stuff.  Feel free to take advantage of that!
