    Team games make me want to rip my hair out. I just don't find them fun or educational.

    I don't know, I guess I like the feeling of when I win, it's because I was the better player. I'm also a huge fan of chess and as we know, no "team" games in chess. Just 1v1. Been playing chess since I was about 5-6 years old.

    Even in other RTS games like RA2, CNC3, DoW2...etc never liked team games.

    And what's funny almost everyone I talk to on steam/xfire/where ever else...etc all pretty much like team games and always try to convince to play. Even had friend who bought me AvP on steam just so I would play 2v2 on DoW2.

    P.S.
    I could never steal your thunder, you're mussels D:

    I could say "OMFG I WON THE LOTTERY!!!!!!" and you can reply with "I just drank orange juice" and peeps here would give you 89045903750375 thanks lol

    ... strangely thats about true.


    as for the team games, you'd be playing with us lot. we coordinate via teamspeak, and work together with shared control.


    you go zerglings, we'll give you marines to throw in with them. you're spamming colossi, we'll make the zergling meat shield.

    you want to tech up the battlecruisers, we'll go defensive and cover your mineral lines, and vice versa.


    its all about getting the 1v1 timings and preconceptions, and BEATING them due to having help, to kick everyones asses.

    That's another thing, the teamspeak communication part. I play music when playing sc2. I do this on purpose because to distract me from hearing what's going in the game. To force me to use the mini map at all times.

    I'm just a 1v1'er, I guess my kind isn't liked much around here D:

    P.S.
    The last time I played a team game on sc2 was when Day9 first introduced mono battles lol Long time ago

    Don't worry about that much. These guys talk so much shit that you will be paying even less attention to the game than if you were listening to music.

    You are missing 1/1/1 TvP allin lololololol. Its a variant of banshee push, but with raven instead and lots of scvs.

    The most imbalanced build right now against Toss, with a winrate of more than 80% if executed correctly.

    Shit happens. But the 1/1/1 only become very powerful ever since the wg nerf. Before that it was one of the stronger timing/allin which might or might not work, depending on how schooled your opponent is.

    I am proud to say that I have not been using 1/1/1 to beat all the tosses, I am above that crap :)

    Patch 1.4.0 PTR Notes!

    http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/1213111662

    Here are the Balance tweaks:

    Balance

    General
    Unit vision up ramps has been reduced by 1.

    PROTOSS
    Immortal
    Attack range increased from 5 to 6.
    Mothership
    Acceleration increased from 0.3 to 1.375.
    The Mothership’s Cloaking Field no longer cloaks all units instantaneously, but rather adds units to the cloak field over time (maximum of 25 per second). This should alleviate “Mothership Lag” issue when a Mothership comes online.
    Stalker
    Blink research time increased from 110 to 140.
    Warp Prism
    Shields increased from 40 to 100.

    TERRAN
    Barracks
    Build time increased from 60 to 65.
    Hellion
    Infernal Pre-Igniter damage upgrade decreased from 10 to 5.
    Raven
    Seeker missile movement speed increased from 2.5 to 2.953.

    ZERG
    Infestor
    Fungal Growth damage changed from 36 (+30% armored) to 30 (40 vs Armored).
    Overseer
    Morph cost decreased from 50/100 to 50/50.
    Contaminate energy cost increased from 75 to 125.
    Ultralisk
    Build time decreased from 70 to 55.

    A few pointless and completely unnecessary changes. The rax and hellion change are not needed. Everything else is pretty nice.

    Hellion has been fine since the beta, just because figured out that they're pretty good you need to nerf them right away. Makes no sense to me.

    If you've been watching the pro scene lately, Terran vs. Anything has been nothing but hellions.

    This. Hellions are strong and all, but blueflame is really powerful. Nerf was in order, the rax however was uncalled for :/

    Me and Mussels played our first grandmaster tonight. Playing 4v4, got matched up vs a solid master team (slightly favored my ass) and their top guy was vileillusion, 130th ranked grand master. Needless to say, we got our asses handed to us on a platter. Dude had a wicked banshee marine tank build.

    the shees were nuts, even when i had the right counter, it didnt matter - he just knew how to do massive damage with them, and he reinforced them quicker than i could reinforce stalkers (and he'd send in just one lone viking and scan to take out my observers)
