Playing too much can actually be detrimental to your gameplay if you're not focused on improving. I know a guy that plays around 30 games a day everyday and he went from being in platinum to dive bombing into silver.

[QUOTE=BigFan;12382166] If the system could match you with people your level(couple of games played, etc...) then you'll get a better chance to develop your skills instead of being creamed while trying to explore the abilities, items, etc....
QUOTE]

yea, quitting isn't an issue assuming your teammates don't bone you in the ass and rage quit before selling off their items...

I do agree completely though. sotis's main weakness is it's reliance on the random matchmaking in custom games. Nothing worse than getting pitted up against an organized 5 man team all communicating via teamspeak/skype/vent and completely tearing you apart.

On the topic of actual SC what keyboards are you guys using? i tried out a deck legend with mx black switches and i honestly don't like the way it feels. My hands end up feeling fatigued after several hours of laddering. Got a keyboard with blues on the way to see how that feels.

edit-can't seem to get the quote tags to work....hrmmm....

I'm using some 10 year old hp keyboard XD As for sotis, you're telling me My games have been the following, join, choose some new character to try out abilities, survive in the early game with a maybe a kill or two if lucky, maybe an assist then all hell breaks looses in the mid game. I think a couple of games were like 0-17-1 or something. The game last night, all the players were a similar level, was able to go 4-5-1, so, I think it's mostly experience that's the issue and the matching system

^^^that would do it :b

I had the same problem in regards to the mid/late game when i first started playing sotis (just barely figured out the items recently) the main problem came from other players being able to kill off the enemy creep and get the $$ instead of the friendly creep getting the kills. When they do this they just get exponentially stronger compared to a newer player who's really having a hard time farming.

Kill off enemy creep? As in creep tumours? I'm still trying to find the best items, but, so far, I find that the weapon and speed items you can buy from the prism/queen are the best to start. Then I aim for the neosteel armor, maybe anaerobic regeneration, along with some weapons one such as the rail gun and not sure what the other is called, has a flame on it. I think once you figured out your preferred character and best weapons, it'll make the game much easier

They're great except I haven't tried other mechanical switches to compare them to.

nearly a whole month without practice, bronze league here I come... (right after I reinstall since my silly windows is acting up)

anyway I hope next time they do teams on GOM they actually have 4v4s or 2v2s or something like that...

BigFan you in masters yet since the last time I saw you?
