    Wow I lost to a low diamond Terran. What the hell just happened?
    Can someone analyze what I did wrong? Thanks.

    First off you are afk for 15 seconds at the start also you commited too much to getting mutalisks even though you knew he was going thor/mech , maxing out on roaches instead would probably have won you the game

    Being "afk" for 15 seconds at the start won't lose you a game unless you're in grandmasters.

    If this a joke, not funny. If it's not a joke, Gmod is ruined. It was fun because it was free, I will never pay $10 for a sandbox game. No matter what new stuff you put in there.

    Not true! Yesterday I played a 2v1 against two friends and squished them

    That was fun
    i was joking obviously but yeah fucking about with less skilled players is a lot of fun

    being on the receiving end of that isn't that much fun i assume, but you'll have to ask kondor to answer that

    no if you understood the game you wouldn't be in plat
    simple as that

    and yes 2v2 sounds good
    understanding without mechanical ability is gold. No understanding but at least somemechanics is gold as well. Because let's be honest. Understanding has usually been secondary at best in sc.

    Depends on your definition of understanding but if you define it like you just did then yes I agree with what you said.

    Yeah, that was the first match of the day, and sometimes it lags like hell at the start of a game.

    Ah I see, thanks.

    Sort of knowing builds. Ability to devise new builds, knowing what counters what, understanding the metagame at least somehow.

    All that knowledge is good. But in starcraft understanding can mean utterly zero, because a player with amazing mechanics can defeat one with a better composition and tactics purely by those mechancis.

    It's less true for Sc2 (though still is to a large extent) but it's absolutely true for BW and Sc1.

    To be highly functional in sc2 you basically need the same understanding as a pro quake 3 player needs of their game. Know timings, know the map and know what the opponent can do.
    But most of your functionality comes from your mechanical ability. (in sc this is further seperated into macro, micro, but both are essentially mechanical skills)

    This in contrast to a game like chess where mechanics play less of a role.

    They're annoying sc1 terran units that float around and players make their vessels into poison ships. It kills all burrowed units with poison.

    Yeah, and the Dragoon is somewhat like getting the Stalker again except not as good and blinks.

    Reversing things so they don't make sense is fun.

    How would you like it if hydras and stalkers could be micro'd like marines?

    I'd say stalkers are a lot more brutal than dragoons if you ask me. Maybe it's the fact that they can actually reach you for a change. And they start off with greater range than marines from the get go. Dragoons can get +2 which gives them the same range as stalkers.

    Also don't stalkers technically have greater DPS than dragoons? Just imagine sc2 marines against dragoons.

    For anyone that used to play total annihilation - that's like a difference between an AK and peewee.

    I think BW units were great. Everything had the potential to do a lot of damage, for either you or them. Makes it ~intense~.

    Also every time I play BW I am reminded that holy shit zealots were AMAZING. Jesus christ those things took so much punishment before they died.

    fucking finally

    Beating wumbel was probably the best part. I've played against him multiple times before and he's a piece of shit and we hate each other. It was bo3 and I lost the first game against him. In the 2nd game I was so far behind I thought it was hopeless but I managed to pull through somehow. 3rd game we both went 4gate so I won

    hohohoho fuck you wumbel enjoy your loss

    Edited:

    Why do my opponents show as "Favored" one the loading screen.. then I play them and their ranked way below me?

    Edited:

    I'm Top 8 and a guy who's not even top 50 just showed as favored.. lol

    Your MMR and your rank is not the same. MMR = How good you are. Rank = Points on ladder.

    Whenever some BW player moves over to SC2 and people talk about them they always go 'HE'S THE BEST HE'S GONNA FUCK EM ALL HE'S AMAZING POTYAY HES UNBEATABLE AT X RACE'

    and I'm like 'wasn't it some other guy? Whatever I don't give a fuck anymore'.

    They kinda lose character that way.

    Also winning against a favoured opponent puts you up 30 points and puts him down by 30 (it think) so you end up with a 60 point difference after the match which is why after the match he'll be a lower rank than you
