I started playing 4vs 4 today alot better at it then 1vs 1 lol especially since blizzards match-up sucks every time i try to 1vs1 its against some guy with 1000+ league matches compared to my like 60
Im on pretty much everyday for 5+ hours if anyone wants to play 4vs4 or co-op vs ai on very hard add me.
any aussies in here?
i'd play with you guys, but its a right pain in the ass to swap from ANZ to US region
post your id/code and I'll add you
when/if you do/want add us and we'll jump in with ya!
deathmore - 107 is my code
the main beef i have is that it has entirely seperate username/friend codes/achievments/stats etc.
i suppose i may as well set up the USA account now, so that i can comp stomp with you guys
alrighty its done,
everyones welcome to add me on this one, just keep in mind i'll normally be logged into SEA and wont see you guys online (and vice versa)
Just a heads up guys, I have a list of all the people and their 3 digits up in the front page. No need to keep on asking
Add me up as well,
BjornOfIceland - NA - 159 - KimJongGrill
BjornOfIceland - SEA - 164 - KimJongMeal
(I rarely go to NA though)
Up for some friendly practice, vs AI, vs friends, ladder, custom maps, etc ^_^
i was wondering since patch 1.2 we now have chat channels what about creating a tpu channel on sc for members?
Added Bjorn, if you guys want to create a chat channel for TPU, then someone will have to do it because I don't have a NA account and the bulk of the players play on NA.
so UK didnt get NA unlocked as well? i guess Australia actually got something good for once then.
i'm about to sign into my NA account now, if someone wants a game.
I also made a "techpowerup channel" (Spelled like that), but it think it closes when no ones left in it.
The star jeweled is quite entertaining. Needs more units though
No, only SEA gets free NA unlock :/
Hey if anyone who's on EU ladders looking for some 1v1s, feel free to add me.
Added to list in front. Would be nice if you also give a rough estimate of your skills, eg. I will get creamed by people in master league despite being a 2.4k Diamond.
i'm only silver lol, but thats cause i play 2v2 and 3v3 with randoms. i dislike 1v1, where its easiest to rank up.
Don't like playing random 2v2 or 3v3, sometimes your allies completely don't understand the word "teamwork", and they will watch you getting beaten up while they tech up. I spend most of my time nowadays playing 3v3 and 2v2 with my friends though.
yeah i think things would change for me once i get into gold, because then it guarantees a minimum level of skill in my teammates.
when i did the placements i really sucked and started in bronze.
Even in Gold you get turds as allies. The fun starts at plat and above, but there will be tons of cheese on your way. Best to grab a friend or two and beat out a coherent strategy among you guys, and tons of fun will come out of it.
At some point i'd like to start playing 1v1, kinda want to get a feeling for where I'll place before I play though.
Playing with TPU friends is fun though, so i'd much rather do that.
Its so true im in gold 4vs4 random and the other team is always favored against the team im on cause the opposing team all play together and are all in plat or diamond.
Always make sure you announce what build you are going for in the game, and request a complementing build from your allies early in the game. For 3v3, if most of our bases are close by, 2 of us will build up a good early defensive army, while the third teches up/ expand. Otherwise, its going to be "three 1v1" style of play, where we follow our 1v1 builds which focuses on early army (4gate, roaches, 3rax), and then defend against a big timing push, or to do it ourselves. Examples including making tanks+ 4gate, 2gate robo +mmm, roaches + rauders (weak to air, but will completely devastate any non tank based ground force). Muta+medivac is awesome, along with muta+collosi. I still hate tanks+4gate the most though, extremely hard to fend off, especially if they have a good number of sentries.
Scouting is of utmost importance, make sure everybody scout for early cheese such as 6pool (easy to defend, actually), massmarines (pita, but soo much fun if I use that), or mass zealots. All of the earliest cheese pressure is easy to beat, some scouting will tell you what to expect. A bigger problem is when they do a "standard" timing push, like waiting for stim to finish, or 2x4gate push. That is a royal pain in the ass, and can only be solved with proper teamwork.
side note: Out of the games we played, I seem to find zerg the weakest in 3v3 and above. Their early defensive capabilities is weak, and if they opt to get some static D people will just switch their targets and z will be completely out of place to defend.
If anybody want me to put up my usual terran builds for 3v3, I don't mind doing that, but it requires a lot of effort from a lazy bum here, so I want to know if there are people who will appreciate it before committing.
catnipkiller new to rts i play more custom games then real. loves phantom mode scv rushing noobs is fun btw
Don't keep on doing that though, it will not make you improve in any way at all. Try to learn the standard builds first, and then learn cheese instead of the other way around.
