    Had an awesome match today. The game was 4v4 and me and friends were playing randomly. My friends slowly fell one by one with me trying to help them and then i went and said you know what screw this and attacked with 25 carriers. And believe it or not i managed to beat them. :) It was awesome...... :p

    25 Carriers?

    Can you upload that replay to a site, so I can see it / share with my friends?

    Most games I've seen, they never even build Carriers, LET ALONE 25!

    I'll see of i can get the replay on youtube. Also it depends on tactics. I was on Air tactic and the rest had ground and ground and one mixed.

    you dont need to be the whole day seeking for replays.

    Just take a few games to get tactics. and then improve them yourself. Copying tactics always makes you noob. You can maybe beat someone else. But you wont go nearly "pro". Altho watching replays its fun. And you can learn a few things, but after you know the basics of multiplayer, no need to watch them to learn.

    No idea where that came from, it is pretty fun, but it's actually recommended to watch replays. Knowledge is power. While I agree Knowledge without experience is useless, but having both = great.

    that said, you have Saber as your Avatar, and beat 4 VS 1.

    yup, but most people doesnt get the right knowledge, they just watch endless replays and make exactly the same movements than the ones on it.

    Then when they play vs a smart player who adapts enemy tactics, they r doomed.

    I dont play online SC2. But has been that in all games i play

    Sorry then, but your opinion is invalidated. StarCraft 2 is alot like chess in the way it plays online, so replays can help.

    Even the best players in the world, Koreans and such, say it's just repetition really.

    I've played online RTS's during like 8years. You think its invalidated?.

    Well, i never liked starcraft. And if they say that, now i understand why, no strategy there.

    Altho my guess is that they say its repetitive because they do tactical elections and adapting without thinking, they have it so "mechanical". When you play a lot that usually happens. But that doesnt change the fact that they develop their own strategies which fit them.


    When a game its played during... 10years? or maybe 15. There is no fun or strategy there, thats why i never tried SC1. But i was gona give SC2 a chance.

    Yeah, clearly Chess has no strategy, either.

    I have tons of experience playing SC1, and very little playing CnC3, so any advice I give in CnC3 is invalidated, so yes, yours is, too.

    chess is so "simple" and they have infinite time that they only search the 100% perfection on their games, loser is the one who misses any movement.

    But thats strategy still, adapting to other's movements and making yours according to their's -_-. You can do it thinking or mechanically bcs of repetition (altho when it becomes TOO mechanical its when i leave games...), but that doesnt change the fact that there is strategy there.

    And that the one who has the best strategy wins (in chess they already know all strategies but well, its only about who applies the best one vs the other's one).

    From what i see, blizzard games compared to others require low thinking and a lot of repetition since there is almost only military involved. But well... maybe thats bcs they r so popular.

    Need your character code.

    Blizzard games require low thinking, hence, it's the only RTS to be adapted into professional play, with leagues, sponsors, coaches, and yes, even trainers.
